Farenheit 9/11 Sways Non-Voter in Ohio

I have a lady friend who's married to an intransigent non-voter...let's call him Squiggy.

Squiggy is at the top end of the typical non-voter demographic.  White male, 30-something, married, no kids, home-owner, works in financial products, is college educated.  The TV remote is programmed only for the 4 ESPN Channels and FOXSports Ohio, and possibly the Golf Channel...he plays a ton of golf.   

Squiggy has never voted, and has been quite proud of that.  He's cited all the cliche reasons; one vote doesn't matter, no one listens, what's it good for, blah fucking blah. 

Squiggy's wife...let's call her...hmm...Laverne...dragged him to see Farenheit 9/11 one day.  Nothing else was playing, so Squiggy didn't put up much of a fight. 

Squiggy came out ready to vote against George W. Bush.  He's not really voting "for" John Kerry, but he is going to vote.  Wow.
