Gilbert Arenas Now Thinks Voting Is A Joking Matter

Gilbert Arenas Thinks Voting Is A Joke -
Gilbert Arenas is a good guy who means well, but he still remains ignorant to the potential influence of his self-proclaimed marketing savvy.

Back in August, Gilbert blogged that he would essentially rather die than vote…..conveying a disheartening state of confusion about whether a vote counted or not, and admitting that he wasn’t even registered to vote because he didn’t want jury duty. No one laughed.

Arenas then reiterated his anti-voting sediment in late October. Still no chuckle. Thankfully, the pretend “Black President” is more side-show than influential subject. America’s youth disregarded absurd negative associations with the right to vote and their voice was heard.

Lo and behold, Barack Obama gets elected POTUS and people are celebrating in the streets. All of a sudden, Gil is registered to vote, getting the Obama family portrait painted on a wall in his home, and tattooing tributes to the President elect’s message of change on his digits. Gilbert, I thought your knee was hurting… were you able to catch up to the bandwagon so quick?

Michael Lee of the Washington Post wrote: Arenas said on Saturday that his previous comments about not voting because he was afraid of having higher taxes were “a joke that nobody got.”

I guess Gilbert Arenas forgot that part about not wanting to participate in the American justice system, or about no longer paying attention because he doesn’t get the party delegate process, or that his pessimism about democracy just might have made a kid who looks up to him not care. What can I say? Typical Gilbertology.
