So it's finally here. I feel like I should be writing something profound. Something meaningful. Something to get us all out there to vote. But really folks, I don't think there's much else to say that hasn't been said already.
How about we just practice. OK? Repeat after me: President Obama, President Obama, President Obama!
For those of you who need that extra push. This will scare you. Repeat after me:
President Palin, President Palin, President Palin.
Yep, I thought that would get you off the couch.
I do want to say one thing. My first thought upon hearing Obama's grandmother died was sadness that she couldn't have lived one more day. But after thinking about it, maybe she had to get up there early to use her influence. Because there is no doubt where that woman is. Any woman who raised her African-American grandson in lilly white Kansas, during the 70's. And did it as well as she did, surely that woman earned her way to heaven.
Happy Election Day! Get out there and vote. As Harriet would say every election day morning when we would arrive at the polls to start working, "It's going to be a great day for the Democrats!"
Say it again, President Obama!
