Election Eve

Four years ago today, some polls (rhymes with Hogby) were predicting that John Kerry would win 300 electoral votes. When are pollsters going to realize that people lie? They lie on the way into the voting booth and they lie on the way out. Why? Because it's nobody's business who we vote for. That's why it's private.

This is the first time in my adult life I've let it be known which candidate I'm supporting. In the past, I've lied. I wish I had lied this year. My honest support for McCain has caused some people to call me a racist. My refusal to support Hillary caused other people to brand me as an enemy to my gender. If I had a time machine, I would go back and slap an Obama sticker on my car window, then quietly vote Republican.

People lie for good reasons. Tomorrow should be interesting.

It use to be a secret ballot. Now my neighbors are planting signs on their front lawns and asking me why I don't have one. Then we began talking and I said I was for Mac. Now I hear that neighbor is no longer speaking to me. Of course the joke is on him as I would prefer all my neighbors went mute when approaching me.
