Election Day

Southern Man's new voting venue is the high school cafeterea in the little town north of The Land so this morning he grabbed his crib sheets on judges and state questions and his new voter ID card and arrived at about 6:45 AM to find himself second in line. By 7:00 there were about forty folks behind him. Everyone (including the poll workers) knew each other but did everything by the book; they opened right on time, required proper ID, and Southern Man signed in and filled out his ballot (we mark them with a big black felt-tip pen; no hanging chads in Southern State!) and fed it to the machine (there's no handing of ballots to the election workers, either) and verified that it was accepted and was out the door in just a few minutes with the obligatory "I Voted Today" sticker on his jacket.

And now the waiting begins. Southern Man has a long and busy work day today (including his evening class) but he will probably drop by a bar-and-grill on the way home this evening for a light dinner and a drink and to see what the early projections look like. And then he will go home and relax and watch a movie or play video games or whatever and probably not know much of anything about the outcome until tomorrow. If we know anything then!

Is your state a red or blue one?

Most assuredly red. Very red. The reddest. Every single county went red in '08 and will probably do the same in 12.

You know Biden is running for President in '16? He said as much today when he and his wife voted. His mouth is his biggest foe. He has a lot of missteps that are all on video. I believe he is equal to Gomer Pyle of old t.v. days.
