The presidential election is over so I thought I could follow suit by having a “little election” of my own. Below, take a look back with the following quotes from your favorite or most hated Perfect Pop characters.

Send me a line telling me which stories you love, hate or think…why’d she even bother. If anyone is actually reading this ;-), once I tally the thousands of votes, for your viewing pleasure, I will post them!

The poles are open!
