Election Day 2008

Here it is, folks, the day we finally will find out who our next president will be here in the U.S. of A.

John McCain held a post-midnight rally at the courthouse square in Prescott this morning. He brought Senators Lindsay Graham and Joe Liebermann in with him and Hank Williams Jr. warmed up the crowd. I didn't attend because of the very late hour but the BRD's beau said he was going and might have some pictures for me.

Another note from a friend told me I had neglected to post about Sarah Palin's being cleared of ethics violations up in Alaska yesterday. So there. Now I have. The same day the governor released her long-promised medical records. Surprise. She's in good health.

As for the election, the first returns came in a little after 10 p.m. my time last night from Dixville Notch, New Hampshire. Obama had 15 votes, McCain 6. That's from the tiny settlement that hasn't voted for a Democrat since 1968 - - forty years ago.

So the day wears on. As for me, I am proud to say . . .

I can hardly believe this day is finally here! It's been a damned long time in coming.

So happy it's finally here. Now I just hope it turns out right.

I wonder if Obama wins if Joe The Liebermann will go back to being a democrat or if he is going to continue being mentally ill.

I used to like Hank Williams Jr.

Phoebe - TELL me about it. I've been on pins and needles for weeks, it seems like. Incidentally I just heard from a friend at KUSA-TV that Brian Williams may plan to call the election at 9 p.m. Mountain Time.

Mike - I read one pundit who said if the Democrats do well in the Senate races, Liebermann may be thrown to the dogs behind the Cannon Office Building.

Hank Williams Jr. ain't your daddy's Hank Williams!

Just called to congratulate!

Stumbled out of bed at 5.30am, never been happier to do so.

Lucy and Meggie - I don't think I've ever been as nervous about an election. Thanks for your good wishes.
