Out of the Blue

After what seems like a four year campaign, we finally get to vote today here in the US. MrsBlue and I will hit the polls this evening, though we do not even remotely live in a swing state. The other thing that does not happen around here is these long lines for voting that have been shown in the news lately, as folks in some states have had to wait hours to participate in early voting, and of course many places will have long lines today. I'm not clear on the reasons for this, but I have never in my life had to wait more than about 15 minutes to vote, which seems to me how it should be. Oh well, best of luck if you have a line to contend with.

Oh god I can't wait for this election to be over.

You really think it's over when the day ends? this shit's gonna go on for another two weeks at least. it won't be those crappy adds, but it's gonna be recounts and screw-ups, etc. look at the last election.

fat chance getting away quietly.
