So many people are excited about the vote today. Personally I'm quite conflicted. I'll be happy when it's over and the proper result certified without another judicially-assisted banana republic episode. One just cannot imagine what Americans are capable of.
I'm also amazed about the number of non-Americans who are keen on our election. I know they mean well but this is our election. I'm no supporter of the Grand Old Party but I don't need the world to tell me about the wisdom of an Obama presidency.
Some of my friends' facebook status today:
"is an active part of democracy. VOTE!"
"is calling DC for Obama."
"can't believe it's finally election day!"
"is going to vote."
"says go rock the vote! This country needs change!!!!"
"is basking in the warm glow of voting for the Dems!"
"Line to vote in col heights is only 3 blocks long."
"is voting strategically instead of sincerely. Sad."
"is everyone...please go and vote!"
"America, are you ready for some change ???"
"pfffff, you cannot even vote"
Here is to election-themed cocktails.
