Apparently, Initech's Peter Gibbons finally has all his "TPS" reports completed (with cover sheet, natch), so he now has time to campaign for Barack Obama.

Seriously, Ron Livingston, star of "Office Space," a movie that only gets funnier upon subsequent viewings, is making campaign stops across his home state of Iowa this week on behalf of the Democratic nominee. 

We hope there is enough cake to go around and that Milton will get to keep his stapler.
