Here’s some great news for all of those politically active special snowflakes and those who love and enable them: MTV, the former music channel that brought “boxers or briefs” to the political forefront, is re-entering the political fray with its new “Elect This” campaign. MTV hopes to reach out to youth voters by enlisting the help of RoboDino.
Before asking who or what RoboDino is, ask if you really want to risk outing yourself as being that unhip. Of course you don’t. Rest assured knowing that both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are huge, longtime fans of Rubber Dino and never miss an episode, issue, concert and/or video game.

"What made you decide to vote?" "RoboDino." "Me too." https://t.co/7C2mpq6FS2

Rest assured that MTV isn’t tackling such an important endeavor without reinforcements. Politico notes that Elect This (that’s only the third time we’re written it and it’s already getting old) will enlist the support of “a series of progressive organizations like the American Civil Liberties Union, Planned Parenthood, Everytown for Gun Safety and the Anti-Defamation League.” There’s no denying that MTV has put together the most diverse coalition of exclusively liberal viewpoints possible.
MTV president Sean Atkins said that Elect This will empower youth by “amplifying their essential voice in the process.” Plus, RoboDino. It seemed impossible, but the 2016 campaign cycle has just become orders of magnitude worse.
