Baracking the vote

IMG_6387.JPG

I voted and drooled on my shirt. Here is photographic proof.

As I told the Westernerds earlier this morning, there aren’t very many times in our lives where we have the power to change the course of history. But here you are. Today is that day.

History repeats itself. It’s a cliche, because it’s true. Are you better off now than you were eight years ago? Do you feel like this country is in a better place? Like I said I watched a sit-com from 1992 that could have very well been about the state of our country right now. SIXTEEN YEARS have passed, and we’re right back there.

But the power to change is in your hands. Go determine history, people. Vote for Barack Obama someone with the vision, the passion, and the intelligence to lead us in a new, better direction.

    Done! And lucky enough to arrive during a quiet time. My husband showed up at the poll at 7:15 this morning and had to wait nearly 90 minutes. And now, concentrating hard on that hope and waiting for the results to start rollign in.

    “There is a tide in the affairs of men.
    Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
    Omitted, all the voyage of their life
    Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
    On such a full sea are we now afloat,
    And we must take the current when it serves,
    Or lose our ventures.” Brutus

    from Julius Caesar Act 4, scene 3, 218–224

    I think we’ve caught this tide. I feel it! I hope i’m not just delirious again…

    Have you ever read Robin Brande’s novel, “Evolution, Me & Other Freaks of Nature?”

    I got it out of the library today (she’s buddies w / Barry Lyga, my new favorite YA author), and it’s AMAZING. I have three pages left, and I don’t want to finish it. There’s a reporter in it, a girl, who’s like 6′ tall and raises all kinds of hell with the local status quo.

    I totally thought of you!

    Now I’m going to go finish it while I watch Barack clean house with electoral votes. I haven’t cried yet, but I suspect I will before the night is over.

    Seriously, though. If you’ve not, you gotta read it:

    Paperback in January. CNN JUST CALLED THE ELECTION FOR OBAMA! 🙂
