Perhaps the question we should be asking of our candidates is not who would we most like to grab a beer with, but rather, who can blow the gnarliest o’s?

With 10 million American vapers and counting—at least some of whom are presumably registered to vote—the vape life might guide the outcome of the upcoming e-lection, says conservative icon Grover Norquist.

“I think that the next election, at the presidential level, and a lot of other levels, is going to be determined by the vaping community,” Norquist, who happened to be lobbying for the Smoke-Free Alternatives Trade Association, predicted last week. “Vaping is not a product. It is a movement. It is a community, it is a political movement in support of a community and it’s changing the country in very good ways.”

Democracy has spoken, and its breath smells like e-cigs.
