I was going to go to bed early but I’m glued to my television watching the election like a bus wreck. For the record, I’m happy with the outcome of things. I’ll just leave it at that.
I am not one for history and really not one for politics. I’m a terrible debater and easily persuaded. I don’t like it when people are mean and take cheap shots so I usually support the high road. But what I am finding fascinating (other than the computer generated set on NBC…how freaking cool is that?) is how the media can “call” a state won or lost with just one percent of the vote in. And the statistics gathering is amazing. They know in an instant how all the sub-sub-sub groups are voting (e.g. white, no college, employed in Ohio). Somewhere there are number crunchers with crusty boxers over all the analyzing.
So there it is. We have a new president.
Everything else that I might have to say tonight is not nearly as important.
