Today is Election Day.
If you haven't already, please go and vote. Preferably for Barack Obama. I'm sure that I have readers who will gleefully vote for Mittens. Don't bother telling me about it. I have a low enough opinion of our public schools as it is.
It's going to be close. I believe (and a cursory scan of assorted news sites confirms) that Republicans will do everything they can to try to steal this election. I am not too worried about this. I am a mean and suspicious man. I have to assume that both parties have professionals on staff who are even meaner and more paranoid than I will ever be on staff, waiting for shit like this. We shall see.
However what we all want is a definite win- one way or the other. John McCain's graceful concession speech Election eve four years ago was an welcome thing indeed. I see no chance of that happening this year, unless the results ar overwhelming. So make them overwhelming already. Four years ago, we spent Election Day at Disneyland, rolling into our hotel just as it was all over. Foolishly, this time I am here, plugged into everything driving myself nuts.
So- still getting ready for my trip to New Jersey. I gotta tell you, I'm just lovin' all the stories about impending snow, another incoming hurricane and other assorted apocalyptic tid bits. But I'll be there, and if it all goes to hell, at least I'll have some entertaining posts.
