    How was the queue?

    Also, I’m reading all sorts of articles about voter enthusiasm for this election. Do you notice more people than usual being motivated to vote this year?

    Yay! I’m waiting for Philly to get home so we can both go and take The Boy. Lines be damned, if history’s in the making, I want him to be able to say he was there, even if he won’t remember it. (Also, I doubt they’ll be handing out stickers here. Seriously, we’re that lame.)

    J – The line was VERY long when we got there, but we arrived before the polls actually opened. Once it was 7:00am, the line started moving fast. Inside I was lucky, because we lined up alphabetically by last name, and I have an uncommon initial, so my line was short. We were out of there by 7:30 — but on the way out we saw the line snaking all the way around the (large) community center. I think it is going to be a HUGE turnout this year. A lot of people really care for the first time. Before, a lot of people were just voting against Bush, but this year we have a candidate we want to vote for.

    C – Aw, the little dude will be learning his first civics lesson. Can he say “Obama” yet? Have fun! If you don’t get a sticker, you should make one or something. Badge of honor.

    Interesting – so it is as I read and the high voter turn-out seems to be a universal phenomenon. Democracy at it’s best!

    I voted for Cthulhu. Finally – An eldrich horror we can believe in! Also, I want to be eaten first.

    To borrow a line from the world’s greatest rock band: Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

    I’m glad somebody is excited, though, I think it’d be pretty depressing if everyone shared my utter political nihilism.

    Except that McCain’s just claimed Kentucky and West Virginia.
