I can say I have never felt this tense about an upcoming presidential election – ever.
I look at polls.
I watch TV [not that nasty lying twisted cable news network]
I read about how vile and vicious the other side’s campaign increasingly gets as the date nears. Desperate acts that know no bounds of truth or morality, that gear to peoples’ worst base fears and even worse cracks of prejudice. The words have escalated from un-patriotic to un-American to terrorist to socialist to communist, and now they are bandishing the H word – as in holocaust. Gotta get those Florida voters.
And how all this is apparently working to tighten the race just a little.
And what the heck is up with these undecided voters?
In less than 72 hours, this will hopefully be all over. Hopefully, because this could still be contested. Or stolen. [Again.]
Oh dear god.
