It's raining so everybody is going to make excuses.
Can't get to the polls cuz it's raining.
Can't get to class cuz it's election day.
I voted. Early. I also did something I never thought I'd do on purpose. For the first time in my life, I voted a straight ticket down partisan lines. Out of spite. Perhaps not the most patriotic thing to do, but hey, it's one of those you're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't kind of things. I'm yearning for a Mr. Smith Goes to Washington moment.
I'm joing the anti-party party. I'm officially done with hyphenated Americanism. I'm American. Period.
We get the government we deserve.
Wow, that looks like some freaky drug-induced found poem or something. Perhaps the rain has put me in a foul mood. Or maybe the politicians did it. Who knows. It occurs to me, however, that I really don't have a great deal of interest in hearing the results tonight. Nevertheless, I will dutifully tune in. Maybe by tonight I will have drop kicked this cynical mood. Or maybe not, in which case I will watch The Distinguished Gentleman instead.
