Ratchet-Thon Race: The Presidential Voting Process in Pop Culture

How many of us have been confused by the voting process? In a post-Bush political arena, do you feel like your vote really matters? Here’s a brief recap of your fourth grade political process class–with pop culture icons to assist. Instead of Democrats VS Republicans, our political parties are the Wig Party and the Tattoo Party. The Wig Party’s presidential candidates are Dennis Rodman, Nicki Minaj, NeNe Leakes, and The Weeknd. The Tattoo Party’s presidential candidates are Keyshia Cole, Lil Wayne, Mike Tyson, and Margaret Cho. The Collard Online presents: The Ratchet-Thon Race.
