Thoughts on Election Night

The way the numbers are tumbling in, I guess I could turn off the telly, crawl into bed, and sleep the sleep of the deliriously happy...then I remember those eight years ago when I crawled into bed, sleeping with the though of a Democratic win, only to wake up with Chad.

Who the hell was Chad, and why was he hanging? Anyway, we all know the rest.

I think I will stay up and watch until it's a done deal. Besides, I doubt I will ever see another election night like this again in my lifetime, and I'd like to take this all in and have something to tell my grandchildren. You know, y-e-a-r-s down the line. You hear that, Robyn? Y-E-A-R-S!

Looking ahead, who will the Republicans have waiting in the wings for the 2012 run? They must have someone else besides Sarah Palin that could possibly light a fire under their collective you knows.

FOOTNOTE: CNN just called it! I can go to bed now, but I'm too excited to sleep!


  1. Who will the 'Publicans saddle up in 2012? Let's hope it's Sarah Palin, the Dan Quayle of the New Millenium.

    We'll get to make fun of her all over again.

  2. Maybe a Palin/Quayle ticket, perhaps? Oh, hilarity will ensue.

    Honestly, who else is there? The Republicans are going to want a relatively young face, as they can see that the Old Guard isn't going to cut it anymore.

  3. Take away "old" and "guard" and what do you have left?
