Has the blogosphere exhausted its spleen, having vented it to the point of collapse? Or are we all gearing up for 2012? Ack!!!
You know where it's not quiet?
At the polls.
I voted last Thursday, in this podunk pirate town, and at 2:30 p.m. there was a steady stream of voters. Non-stop and in high dudgeon. The poor poll workers were frazzled and overworked. If you're waiting until tomorrow to vote, you're likely in for a long wait.
As it was, it went smoothly: I.D. verified, (a "racist" practice, I'm sure) paper ballots, felt-tip pens, printed receipt with my signature. Like anybody's going to actually double-check any of it if Obama wins Florida. Bring back single-day voting, paper ballots and add "purple fingers" I opined at the polling place.
This brought frowns from a large assembly who arrived en masse to vote. Nice to see the community organizers are spending my money as it was intended. Nice to see poll-watchers there, too.
