I’m headed to the airport just as soon as the sitter gets acclimated to the critters, but I want to make sure you all go out and vote. The weather here is beautiful- sun is out, there was a frost on the ground and a brisk cool air, so maybe that will help with the GOTV. I’m not looking forward to the results tonight, but we’ll just have to deal with them and move forward with what we get. We’ve done what we could- lot of people have volunteered, donated up to 80k, and done many things to help the Dems out, but there is still a ton of stuff to do. Maybe the one silver lining in today’s vote is that Prop 19 will pass. Cross your fingers.
And yes, I know I am a ginormous flaming hypocrite when it comes to this, but let’s try to wait a couple days before we start the circular firing squad. The results will be in tonight and tomorrow, but a full analysis of who voted where and why will not be available for a while. And, as much as I love crafting fancy strawmen, sitting around railing about “firebaggers” v. “Obots” ain’t going to help anyone, although I would be remiss if I didn’t note that I am really sad Ben Nelson is not on the ballot this election.
So keep your head up, your drink full, and think positive. It is going to be war- make sure you are shooting in the right direction.
