This is One Good Thing, a weekly column where we tell you about one of the few nice things that happened this week.
If there’s one person who can heal America, it’s our favorite basic hip-hop culinary legend, Martha Stewart.
Just two weeks before the midterm elections, Stewart decided to do her part to encourage her fans to get out the vote. She did it in classic Martha Stewart style, customizing a pair of comfortable denim Aerosoles with rhinestones that spell out the word “VOTE” and posting a photo to Instagram.
“What better way to send the most important message ! Emblazoned in faux diamonds on @Aerosoles_shoes sandals is the word VOTE,” Stewart captioned the photo. “Nothing is more important right now ! Get up! Get out ! Vote! Election Day is right around the corner I am wearing these shoes with my diamond emblazoned denim shift and jacket from Martha Stewart @qvc tonight to the gala@alzassociation Vote NOVEMBER 6 2018.”
Martha, thank you. I’m so sick and tired of flashy Get Out The Vote campaigns featuring young celebrities looking hot. This November, I want to head to the polls in a pair of mildly orthopedic sandals, thank you very much. As a young person with flat feet, I represent a core, underrepresented market demographic. I can’t walk to my polling location in a pair of sole-heavy combat boots. My ankles have suffered enough.
Be like Martha and bedazzle the vote, people.
