Do I even need words?

Congratulations! It's a ballot!

We here at TCKiT know that if there's one thing the American public loves, it's responsibility. No, seriously - you better love it. And if you don't, you better take two shots of rojo, paste on your best botox smile, and tell it you think you're ready to move in together. Because baby, it's time.

That said, check out the following three links to get a better handle on the gorgeous little bundle of HANDLE IT that's about to come screaming into the world exactly 9 months from right now.

Start with VA Joe's Candidate Calculator to get a handle on who you even like.

Answer a series of (fairly) simple questions and get at least an idea of who you'd like, custom made while you wait!

Then hop on over to MPR's Select A Candidate to get a second opinion. (Yes, that's MPR, not NPR, you pedantic jackholes.)

After you are done there, hit up 270 to Win, where you can get an immediate visual and check to see if your pony (party) is ahead.
