This election is like crack. I've been consumed by it. I obsessively scour the web for any news concerning any of the candidates and how the polls are going. I look at the major newspapers, I look at the blogs, I look at Pollster (a lot), I look at InTrade. I even watch all of the nattering nabobs on cable TV. Mostly Olbermann and Maddow, because they natter for my team. Which is refreshing after only having two other flavors in the recent past, Neutral and Shit Sandwich.
I cannot wait to get this damn thing over with so I can go back to being a somewhat normal human being again. I hate anxiety. I hate uncertainty. I want to wake up and know that everything is going to be all right. Or at least that it won't be all right, but I'll know what the not-all-rightness will look like.
It will be soon.
