I can't look. Are the results coming in yet?

"When we got into office, the thing that surprised me the most was that things were as bad as we'd been saying they were."
~~John F. Kennedy~~
"Ninety-eight percent of the adults in this country are decent, hard-working, honest Americans. It's the other lousy two percent that get all the publicity. But then -- we elected them."
~~Lily Tomlin~~
"In America, anyone can become president. That's one of the risks you take."
~~Adlai Stevenson~~
"The reason there are so few female politicians is that it is too much trouble to put makeup on two faces."
~~Maureen Murphy~~
"There is no distinctly American criminal class --except Congress."
~~Mark Twain~~
I'm just killing a little time until the polls close. I am strangely nervous. What if it is a big upset and McCain wins? Can I handle that? Of course, I'll have no choice, but... I want so much more for our Country.
I want a new course. I want to have confidence in and respect for my President again. I want that hope that has been eluding us as a nation for so long.
I have no beef with John McCain. He is an honorable man, though I don't necessarily agree with his agenda. But don't get me started on Sarah Palin.
She is my punishment for disliking Hilary so much. I used to think Hilary's "stand by my man" crap from the Monica days was a disservice to women and showed her as a power-hungry person. At least, Hilary is intelligent, consistent and effective in executing her party's political agenda. Palin is not even in the same league. I saw an email the other day that summed it up nicely. It had a group of women holding a sign that said, "Mr. McCain, we did not wait 232 years for Sarah Palin!!!"
Only an hour and forty minutes before the first polls close. Hold me!

Del proudly pulled out some Sarah Palin 2012 t-shirts today. He said snidely, "I got one for you, honey". And (to his sure surprise) I said, "Oh goody! I HOPE they put her up in 2012! That'd be awesome. Give me my shirt - I'll happily wear it!" Heh heh...

Gah! We can only hope they're stupid enough to run her again. Surely not, though.
