I’m about to leave work a little early so I can vote. This morning, I walked past a polling place (not mine) and the line was around the block. People were chatting with each other and cheerful. I hope they’re still in such a good mood tonight.
According to CNN.com’s election coverage, Indiana, Georgia, West Virginia and Kentucky have gone to Bush, and Vermont has gone to Kerry. Unsurprising.
Four years ago, I was blasé enough about Dubya’s upcoming reign of ignorance that I wrote Al Gore’s concession haiku:
Bush, you cocksucker.
I could have had it all, bitch.
In four years, fear me.
My haiku today is a little different:
Four more years of what?
Deception, terror, and greed?
No thanks. Bye, Dubya.
Here’s hoping. See you after my civic duty.
