Annika reposted this commercial. I had forgotten it, and I wish McCain had continued to run it throughout the campaign.

I don't normally listen to his show, but the other day I heard Sean Hannity say the most perfect thing on the radio. He began his program by saying (I loosely quote), "If you feel nervous, with knots in your stomach, that means that you are alive! Breathe deep and savor it. Let not your heart be troubled."

I can worry about politics today because I live in the greatest country in the world, where few of us have real worries. I have food, clothing, and my health...well, sort of. I came down with a nasty cold yesterday. My husband is safe, my family is fortunate, and my dog is one of the cutest on the planet. The worst thing happening in my life right now is that my presidential candidate might not win. That means my life is good.

I will fret today, and I'm totally doped up on DayQuil, but I will also think about the balls and urns, and hope that there are more red balls than we know about.

Because I have hope. Obama doesn't have a monopoly on it, you know.

I *NEVER* saw this one! Why, oh why, did this one not run on every network, 24/7?

Yeah, Sarah, tomorrow the sun will rise in the east, just as it did today. I just hope McCain rises with it...

I agree with your sentiment Sarah, but for those of us who know what a bad president, Jimmy Carter, means…(*heavy sigh*)…

Here’s one example relevant to our present economic situation, Carter enacted the legislation that started the whole lending to low income families fiasco. Bad presidents can have lasting effects….to say nothing of the Supreme Court…that’s it, I’m getting drunk tonight.

I still love this country… but wholly crap what are we in for? I’m an atheist but even I may pray to (your) god if it’s close.

I think I'm heavily self-medicating with chocolate tonight, LOL... and I'm trying to AVOID the election coverage! I'm finally at peace with "the things I (probably) cannot change," and I'm trying to keep that feeling as long as I can. (You can see what a great job I'm doing, LOL!!!)
