Luke's has become Jackson's campaign headquarters. Lorelai is using her cell phone to make calls to citizens, asking for their vote. So, let's see. Lorelai has taken over her boyfriend's restaurant for her campaign AND is using a cell phone inside the diner? She is a really bad girlfriend. Kirk's in a suit, and he's made an informal poll of Stars Hollow, using the same math the Gallup Poll uses, which means he only had to ask himself, which he did, and unanimously, Stars Hollow is voting for Jackson. I had friends who used to work for the Gallup Poll. That's a tough job, right there. You only get paid your normal wage when you get people to stay on the phone for the entire poll, which can sometimes take twenty minutes. If they hang up after fifteen, you don't make your money. So either get off the phone quickly with those people or do the whole questionnaire because they're just trying to make a living in this economy that's making all of us have to work twelve-hour days just so we can have a roof over our heads. I can't even imagine how much harder it would be if I had a kid. I don't know how you parents do this. I am stretched trying to feed three cats, and I have four jobs. Four! Did I mention you should vote? Because you have to. You have to vote. We can't keep living like this.
Luke asks Lorelai if his customers are getting in her way. She says they're fine, and asks Lane if her band will play at Jackson's rally. She says they will. Lorelai tells her that Jackson already picked out a song. Luke finally has had enough of the shenanigans and tells Lorelai she can't do this in here. She wants to also use the diner for the night of the election to have a place to go that's close to the stage, while they wait for election results. Luke doesn't want his place to become the political headquarters. Four times he says: "You cannot gather here." Lorelai says that sleeping with Luke is getting her nothing. Don't you have an inn to run? Luke tells her to get out of there. She doesn't. Jackson runs in to grab Davey and take him outside to see some people. Sookie coaches Davey from the other side of the glass, telling him to do the clapping thing. Davey does some cute clapping. Taylor invites people on the street to come in his shoppe for free ice cream. Sookie calls Taylor's trick "dirty." Lorelai says he just needs some lying Swift Boat captains to complete the ambush. Sookie worries that they'll lose now. Lorelai says they just have to stay focused and do this one vote at a time. She gets back on her cell phone, prompting Sookie to ask if she's calling Ben Affleck. She calls Rory, and asks her to come to town to vote for Jackson on Tuesday. Can't Rory vote absentee? Lorelai tries to ask how CuteDean is, and sounds like she wants to scream, "Why haven't you left him yet?" Rory says he's good and hangs up. Sookie asks what's with the weird tone. Lorelai says she's trying so hard to sound totally cool with the situation that she sounds totally freaked out. Sookie asks how she could be totally cool. Lorelai admits she's leaning towards totally cool, approaching cool, but you know, she's a thinking human being and can see why this whole thing isn't cool at all. In fact, Jackson might want to prevent Rory from supporting him, so he can keep the rest of Stars Hollow on his side. Jackson returns Davey, calling him "politically useless."
