Go out and vote. Yes, I know you already had plans to do so; in fact, you may be sporting your "I Voted!" sticker as you read this.
But please do it, because all of you are very bright and informed. And trust me: you are the exceptions.
I know one girl who is voting for McCain because "someone told her" that Obama's a Muslim. Likewise, after the second Presidential debate, I read a local article by a person my age who loves Obama because he "glided around the stage like a supermodel." McCain, she noted disparagingly, "was so stiff and rigid when he walked. I also hated his posture. Why can't he sit up straight? " I know, right? Like, why CAN'T he sit up straight? Or raise his arms above his head? He needs to stop acting like he was tortured, for goshsakes! It's not telegenic!
There is some exciting election news involving the show: Bernard will be covering the election on WABC from 1-5 AM, and may end up announcing the winner. It sounds like it'll be a great program, and I'm happy that he's getting the opportunity to do it. (There's also, dare I say, a very attractive photo of him that comes along with the article.) Unfortunately, I'll be at an election party all night and likely won't hear him, so please post the highlights if you listen. Or post about the election and how you think it will impact the show. Or post if you catch Tom Brokaw drooling. Do not post, however, if you see the chill creeping up Chris Matthews' leg. There are some things that I just don't want to see.
Anyway, I'm excited. I love elections, and today comes only every four years. (Well, two years if you count representatives, but really, who cares.) After tonight, we will finally know if A) we're on the verge of the apocalypse, or B) if we're just merely doomed.
Have a fun night!
