vote early, vote often

It took maybe 7 minutes to walk my ass to the church before it opened for voting. I usually get there 5 minutes early and am 1st to 3rd in line. This time I got there 10 minutes early and was around 12th. The line quickly doubled maybe three minutes later. Everyone huddled close to the building as possible to get out of the wind. Voting in of itself was uneventful, thankfully. As I walked out of the church parking lot though there were two women right across the street waving pro-Prop 8 signs. I wanted to flip them off... Ok, what I really wanted to do was take their signs away from them and give them a beat-down they'd never forget. Instead, I opted to give them the dirtiest look I could. :o/ me=weenie

I have to state something publicly. I want to thank McCain for chosing Palin as his running-mate. It's no secret that I don't like Obama. I never have. Prior to the Republican convention I was leaning 51% just staying home on election day. I felt somewhat guilty about that but I was tired of choosing the lesser of two evils. Then McShame picked Caribou Barbie for the VP slot. And then she opened her mouth. I knew then I couldn't let her have a chance at the presidency.

I am glad McCain went down in flames, but I was not expecting that crushing of a victory.
I don't think that it was that crushing as far as the popular vote was concerned (Obama's 54% to McCain's 46%) especially considering Obama was facing a candidate that was essentially Bush v2.0 with a running mate that made Bill O'Reilly look somewhat sane. The margin really should have been much higher. But hey... *shug* ...it was what it was.
