Nothing could disappoint me today

Unexpectedly, I became a little bit teary-eyed. I was standing at the Ward No. 3 District No. 5 table in School No. 12, signing my name when it hit me. I said to the pollworkers, "You know, I've been dreaming of this day for years."

"I hope you're not disappointed," a nice woman said as she handed me my Democratic slip to hand to the man at the voting machine.

"Nothing could disappoint me today," I said.

Then I went into the booth & voted for an African-American man who might become the President of the United States rather than a white woman who might become the President of the United States. The "X" next to Obama lit up red. I had thought, until last week, I would be voting for a white, male, southern liberal.

When I exited the booth, I said to the older fellow who had taken my ticket, "I don't know if you can imagine how enjoyable that just was." But I think he did. I think they all knew how special this primary election day was on the Democratic side.

(Rutgers women beat UConn, the #! ranked team & like the Patriots formerly undefeated & just as smug.)


It doesn't really, really matter who you voted for...the Electoral College, whoever the hell they are and how they vote, already know who's going to be our next president. God save us if a Muslim becomes president. (He says he's a Baptist)
Huckabee is a Baptist. McCain says he's a Baptist. He used to be Episcopalian. His wife's money comes from a large beer distributorship, which doesn't seem very Baptist to me.
