One More Day

If there is a slimy shoe left to drop, it'll be today...a grainy photo of Obama at an orgy with Monica Lewinsky, Saddaam and Stalin, perhaps? A tape from bin Laden endorsing Barack? That's the paranoid in me. And I earned my crazy fair and square.

But maybe nothing will happen. Maybe it'll just be a last, final day of campaigning that ends with the candidates in their home states, hanging with their families and waiting. Because after today, it's all out of their hands.

I don't think anyone is sitting around today thinking, "Dang it, I can't believe the election season is over. This sucks!" We're ready to move on, ready to see what the future holds.

It goes against the nature of most Democrats to be excited today. It ain't over til it's over and we know that all too well. You won't catch us counting our chickens before they are hatched. We'll do that tomorrow. Right now we have to wait, maybe make some phone calls, talk to a few neighbors, find out if any one needs a ride to the polls...like that. For now we just have to get through one more day.

This has to be the best produced campaign 'ad' ever!..

My anxiety over this election is giving me a stomach ache..really.
I'm having nightmares where I wake up Wednesday morning and discover that a majority of people in this country have elected John and Sarah,and that the religious nuts have succeeded in passing proposition 8.
There's not enough Maalox in the world to deal with that scenario.

Even I want to see that photo with Stalin.

Oh, have you heard that Ms. Palin was phone pranked by some rowdy Canadians? If you haven't heard it, seek it out. They convinced her that the Prez of France was calling. Six minutes of wonderful. What scares me is these guys got through all screening - presumable secret service would monitor her calls too. I thought I'd die when he said he could see Belgium from his house.

Or, as my grandfather used to say, do not calculate upon the juvenile poultry until the proper process of incubation has thoroughly materialized...

Sling? In the event of the scenario of your nightmares (which are mine as well), I won't be looking for Maalox--more like Quaaludes with a whiskey chaser. And this is from someone who hasn't even bought aspirin in a couple of decades!

Even we're getting excited over here on our side of the pond. I can't imagine what it must be like for you guys in situ.

All fingers and toes crossed!

I will be too afraid to go to sleep if I haven't heard a concession speech. It never ends well when I fall asleep.

I guess I'm not like most Democrats--because I am SO excited!! :)

I can't help it--it is my nature to be hopeful. :)

Pretty cool, huh? I'm thinking that the smart money for future elections is on just finding gems like these and getting them to go viral.

Hang in there, buddy. If your nightmares come true (God forbid) at least there's still brown liquor.

KA, well, sure. For real? I gotta find that tape...

Have some peanut butter, Sage.

Grandpa was a funny guy, Syd. And no suicides allowed in the event of an unfortunate outcome. We have to have our wits about us if we're going to start impeachment proceedings against Palin.

Sage, pass Lost the peanut butter, please.

Twisi, the best thing about Wednesday, no matter what happens, is those frakking ads will disappear. Just saw the Wright ad. Frakkers.

DA, I suspect the majority of the world is similarly crossing digits. And we thank them.

Right? That's totally what I thought, JP.

One more day, Anonyba! Whoo hoo!

Random, feelin' that. Lord how I want to go to bed with it a done deal. I will be soooooo fried if we have to wait.

MHP, and that's why we love you so!
