This is it folks.

Election day 2008. An unprecedented number of people are expected to vote today, at 30% of the registered voters taking advantage of early voting, we've already beat the average off-year voter turnout. Good for us.
I want to wish the best to all the election volunteers that are going to have a long day today - thank you for your help and time.
I also want to wish the best of luck to the following candidates;
  • Barack Obama
  • Connie Anderson (Granite School Board)
  • Dan Lofgren (Granite School Board)
  • Janet Cannon (State School Board)
  • John Rendall (running against Chris Buttars)
  • The guy I voted for that is running against Randy Horiuchi.
  • and good luck to everybody else.

You know, we wish you would actually speak your political mind once in a while. We all wonder how you really feel...

I know. I've been trying to get better at expressing myself, but somehow I still end up holding my political feelings inside....

Y'know, I just really can't decide which person sickens me more, Palin or Buttars. I keep going over it and over it in my mind, and I just can't decide which of the two I'd most like to see be forced to fend for themselves, alone and unaided, against an angry mob of educated, environmentalist, minority women.
Have you ever read A Tale of Two Cities? There's a scene where Therese DeFarge leads an army of angry women to storm one section of the Bastille. What the women do to the French elite and their supporters is far more dangerous than anything the men do.
Ah, but I build castles in the air just thinking about it....

Well, 20 minutes ago I would have said Buttars over Palin, mainly because I beleived Buttars would be reelected. But, my faith in my fellow human beings, even those from West Jordan, has been renewed. The latest results show Buttars decidedly getting his ass kicked. 'bout time.

Yes, I just checked that as well. But it looks like Palin will have more time to spend with her pregnant daughter and Down's Syndrome son soon, too.

Oh, and I checked the polls at 8:37 PM with the first 4 voting precincts' results in. It was really fun to see that Obama had a big lead. Of course, all the rural idiots will vote red, as always, but SL County results show a lovely blue streak.

Sigh. I wonder what it would be like to live in a swing state.
Well, if you see any pigs flying with their ice skates in tow down to hell, let me know.....

I spoke too soon, just checked the local results and with 17% of the vote Buttars is behind 46% to 49%. Not a decisive as it seemed before, but I can still hope.

And I find out this morning that SL County actually approved McCain by a narrow margin.
I am so embarrassed.
Obama did win in Grand County, though. Go, Moab!
