...and I feel like I'm gonna puke.
How's that for a political perspective?
Encouraging feedback from all the voters I encountered today. Did visibility for Betty Castor at 4 different precincts.
Right now NBC talking about electoral votes. Saying FL has a record turnout (well DUH!!) and Glenda Hood feels it might be a long night. Hell, we'll take a long night as opposed to a long month to figure out who's the winner.
I'll admit it right now. I don't get this EV thingie. Just can't wrap my brain around it. I read everything I can about it on the blogs and such, but sorry, doesn't make sense to me. Just my opinion, ok??
Hanging out here for another 20 minutes then up to PBG for the Castor party that we are not supposed to call a (starts with a V) party. Media is supposed to show and film our reaction shots. How's about a shot of me doing a starts-with-a-V-shot? Jager, anyone?
I am so trying to be lighthearted about this, because I just can't post seriously on this subject...4 years of not getting over what happened last time...you have no earthly idea of how knotted up my stomach is...ya don't have a clue, guys. OK, maybe you Floridians do.
At this point all I can say is this...
2 Nov 2000 I sat in shock as I watched the returns. When the Supreme Court 'results' were announced, I cried out of sheer frustration. Those fucking bastards stole our election. And I promised myself next time around I would do better...get off my butt and get active. 537 votes...yeah right.
I kept my promise. How I kept it, well, read thru this blog and you'll see. But I kept it. At this point it's just wait and see....and hope and pray and think positive vibes. Will update when I come home tonite...or tomorrow am...or whenever.
Heading out right now...will try not to puke on the drive north.
2:10 Weds am. This is not how I expected things to turn out, obviously. Had to turn the TV off...can't take it anymore. They're calling it for The Liar & Thief. How so many people could pick this guy is beyond me. Have to call it a nite for now.
