The lines were out the door when I went to the polls this morning.
I got there about 8:30, right in the middle of the before-work rush.
All of the candidates were represented, by signs, if not by guys handing out leaflets to the last minute, undecided voters.
But they couldn't stand past here.
Apparently, very few people, in my precinct at least, with last names starting with H-O were voting this morning, because I walked straight to the front of my line.
We won't have to worry about hanging chads here in VA. We vote on computers.
And I stopped to buy doughnuts from a little league baseball team on the way back to the car.
(Not for me, of course, for the kids. Yeah, that's right, the kids).It is exciting to be a part of this election.
This election, regardless of the outcome, will be monumental in our nations history.
Whether you are voting for Barrack Obama, and a symbol of change, or John McCain and are simply going for the lesser of two evils, (like me), every vote matters.
Especially in my potential swing state of VA.
We'll see the outcome soon enough.
In the meantime, check out this video, (at least the first 2 or 3 minutes of it).
This video represents to me much of the common sense and clarity this whole year of campaigning has shown.
Oh, if only I could have voted for Tarquin-fimtin-limbin-wimbin-lim-busstop-fatang-fatang-ole-biscuitbarrel....
