Dear Lord Jesus, I do not often speak with you and ask for things, but now, I really must insist that you help me win the election tomorrow because I deserve it and Paul Metzler doesn't, as you well know. I realize that it was your divine hand that disqualified Tammy Metzler and now I'm asking that you go that one last mile and make sure to put me in office where I belong so that I may carry out your will on earth as it is in heaven. Amen.
-- Tracy Flick, Election
The big day is HERE....and I'm too superstitious to make any real predictions. And I don't know that we really can...absentee ballots....rain in key states...and the option of recounts and run offs make it too hard to call the final count at the end of the night. But it is STILLANEXCITINGDAY ...OH WOW! The fact that democrats even have HOPE is a big deal.
I'll do my obligatory needless voting in the red state that is my home today...but I'll still feel a sense of pride as a cast my ballot. But I won't feel as cool as Drew who was the first voter in our precinct today. I'm jealous...all that quality time in the polling place!
Anyway...here's to a very BLUE day not meaning a very sad day.
