7-Eleven has Gore, Bush and No Opinion cups.

7-Eleven has Gore, Bush and No Opinion cups. Then on their website is a 7-Election page using daily sale results from 5000 of their stores, you can see which cup is being chosen the most. (The cup gets scanned at the register and each cup has it's own UPC.) Right now the natonal cumulative results are 20% Gore 20% Bush and 60% No Opinion. Very neat idea, they also have links to register to vote for real.

Jeez. It's bad enough he can't get in the debates, but you're telling me the poor bastard can't even get on a coffee cup?

They're adding a Nader cup; it biodegrades in your hand

And you'll only be able to use it for decaf, since the caffeine's just there to addict you into buying more coffee. Which is being harvested by mistreated Columbian peasants anyway.

They were going to have a Nader cup, but it was judged unsafe at any Speedway.
