just right quick

I do have my opinions on what tomorrow will hold, but I’ve no desire to be a part of the hysterics swirling around, so I’ll just tell you that, as ever, I will vote the joint up tomorrow.

Mostly I’m just here to say that, no matter the outcome, I’ll just be glad to have it over and done with. I have some international readers that I correspond with on the regular, and they ask question upon question about what it is to be an American from my perspective. I’d like to give a brief summation on what I feel as of late: The last nine or ten months has been like being tied down and beaten with a rolled up newspaper. Annoying enough in and of itself, but imagine further that said newspaper is wrapped around a length of heavy lead pipe and then you’ll have a rough approximation of what it means to be an American right about now.

While you are waiting in suspense on the edge of your seats for the frenzy to reach its apex, I’d like to point you toward zefrank and a pretty decent discussion going on over at his place: Please, people, more like this. Next time around, more like this and less like the horseshit we’ve all been wading through this past year.

    I’ve been being beaten to Death with that “Newspaper”.

    And, I didn’t even Pee on the floor.

    I totally should have though.

    I’m so sick of this shit too. I know, and have known my choice for quite sometime now, and I’m just sooooo over it. And so tired of recieving stupid,ignorant forwards with their ignorant claims. Then I’m tired of being obligated to reply to those stupid forwards, copying, pasting, and sending them on to the whole workplace..in the hopes that whoever keeps sending them will be shamed into silence.

    I can’t wait for it to be over, either. Longest election ever. The rolled up newspaper analogy was brilliant and dead-on.
