It's finally here. Voting day. I AM GIDDY with excitement. Wearing red, white, and blue even. That's how big a dork I am.
I feel strangely calm and confident, considering what's at stake. I'm just so certain Obama is going to win. And that's not just bravado talking. It's something that the other side doesn't always believe it: science.
My thoughts this weekend have turned to early elections, outcomes, and alternate realities.
Five nights from tonight! And only one more day left for that proverbial October surprise. Think anything's coming?
A huge d'oh -- I dropped the ball on my "it's seven till the election, betch!" update. Don't do as I've done on election day, or we may be looking at this...
Remember my uber Republican father I told you about? He forwarded me an email today. An AOL email forward, replete with rainbow stationary, enough exposed email addresses in all the FW: FW: FW: fields to double the TIG mailing list, and all the requisite "Obama is Muslim, McCain is a POW" crap such emails tend to contain.
It's Friday night so I'm going to keep this one brief, and I might take a break from the countdown on Saturday, unless something REALLY GOOD happens. So far, things are looking good for the good guys....
12 more days till we know who our next president is! 12 more days!!
Today's pre-election news includes exciting endorsements, a bemusing lack of team spirit, a questionable (at best) attack, a fantasic song, and some very exciting pie charts. Let's begin, shall we?
Not surprising, but certainly eloquent. The New York Times unreservedly endorses Obama. (NYT}
Mr. Obama has met challenge after challenge, growing as a leader and putting real flesh on his early promises of hope and change. He has shown a cool head and sound judgment. We believe he has the will and the ability to forge the broad political consensus that is essential to finding solutions to this nation’s problems.
More surprising, and certainly exciting. Former Bush press secretary Scott McClellan endorese Obama. (WaPo)
"From the very beginning I have said I am going to support the candidate that has the best chance for changing the way Washington works and getting things done and I will be voting for Barack Obama," McClellan said during the interview, which was taped for the Saturday broadcast of a new CNN show, "D.L. Hughley Breaks the News."
Today I've been thinking that behind every liberal-thinking, blue-state living pal I know, there's at least one rabidly conservative relation.
