It’s funny. I took part in the Massachusetts early voting program this year and cast my mid-term election ballot a couple of weeks ago. While I am very grateful to be able to vote ahead of time, it does really suck the life out of the actual election day. It’s like opening your Christmas presents early. When the big day comes, it’s not a big deal anymore.
As a Democrat in Massachusetts it’s safe to say that my votes were not really necessary. The polls and the fund raising all point to landslide victories for all of the Democratic party candidates. That’s fine with me. If you live in a state with more closely contested races, I really hope you make it to the polls today, if you haven’t already, and I hope you vote Democrat. Say no to nazis disguised as republicans.
Fascism = bad.
Happy election day. Here’s hoping it’s not the last one we get.
After reading about the Supreme Court verbally bitch slapping the fascists trying to overturn the Presidential election yesterday it brought on a fresh bout of freaking out about the end of the US as we know it.
December 14th. That’s the next milestone. Five days from today the electoral college votes. That’s the next hurdle to the coup that the nazi cheeto is working on. He’ll still have plenty of time and opportunity to finish destroying American democracy, but it will be that much harder for him to pull it off.
I am not going to relax or stop worrying about the future until that orange flavored prick is out of my White House for good and President Elect Joe Biden is sworn in as our 46th President. That’s January 20th. There is still over a month to go before then.
Join me as I hold my breath in fear.
After a day’s worth of celebrating Biden’s win we need to start gearing ourselves up for the cheeto’s backlash. He’s never going to admit he lost. His narcissism cannot understand the concept of people not loving him. He’s going to sue everyone under the sun, he’s going to lie and rant and rave like the lunatic he is. He’s going to do everything he can to convince his base that he was robbed. He’s slime and he’s going to get slimier.
The inauguration is 73 days away.
The electoral college vote is 36 days away.
Pennsylvania and Georgia are still seeing a slow increase in the lead for Biden. Arizona’s lead is still shrinking. Nevada is… Nevada.
Am I still freaking out on Tuesday Take Five? You bet your sweet red white and blue ass I am.
We are getting to distraction time. We watched a Harry Potter movie last night while trying not to watch the news. Today there are some chores to do, there are guitar parts to record (I’ve decided that the rest of November will be played on my SG, you heard it here first), I’ve started binge re-watching The Flash because… I don’t know why, and there are still more Harry Potter movies to see.
All while we wait for the last few states to count the last few ballots. Please let it end today.
It still hasn’t been called yet but it can’t be much longer.
Just imagine not being embarrassed to return here…
Biden’s lead in Pennsylvania continues to grow, slowly but steadily.
The lead in Georgia is small and getting minutely smaller at a snail’s pace.
The lead in Arizona is still small but substantial though it too is shrinking very slowly.
The lead in Nevada jumped up in a big way and then bounced up and down from there.
All four states are getting closer and closer to finishing their counts. I desperately want all four states to end with Biden on top. That won’t give me the landslide I was hoping for, but it will be a pretty convincing win.
I don’t know how much longer I can keep myself together. At least it’s Friday and I can vegetate tomorrow if I need to.
Last night Biden went ahead in Georgia. This morning he went ahead in Pennsylvania.
Sweet Christmas, this is killing me. I need this to end with Biden as the President Elect, and I need it to end today. I don’t think I can survive with my sanity intact if this stretches into the weekend.
Keep counting, America. Let’s wrap this puppy up.
The trends on the vote counts in Georgia and Pennsylvania look good but I can’t let myself get excited.
If I let myself get excited the home plate umpire is going to bounce Roger Clemens in the first inning.
If I let myself get excited Aaron fucking Boone is going to homer in extra innings.
If I let myself get excited Bucky fucking Dent is going to put one into the screen over the Monster.
If I let myself get excited the ball is going to go through Bill Buckner’s legs.
I can’t let myself get excited.
It’s 70 degrees here in Methuen, Massachusetts. I have the windows open in the bedroom/office and the wind is blowing like crazy outside and it’s making a cross breeze in here that is just delightful. It’s just a gorgeous day out here.
However, there has been barely any movement announced for any of the states that are still counting votes. Biden is still ahead in Arizona and Nevada. He’s still behind in North Carolina and Alaska, and he’s still gaining ground in Pennsylvania and Georgia. If it stays this way it will put Biden up to 270 electoral votes and he will win.
I am, of course, more interested in accuracy than speed but… come on guys, get to the counting. We need the info! This is brutal!
You guys are killing me! Give me news! Specifically, give me good news, but please just give me some friggin’ news!
