Too Close To Call

I thought for sure they'd think of a new phrase. But, the moment we get internet and cable, all I hear is "too close to call."

It's been an exciting week; first the Red Sox win the World Series, now this. Will John Kerry have the same luck the Red Sox did, and overcome Bush in the polls? Will Bush act like the Yankees (until this year, heh heh...) and destroy the competition?

I guess we'll see in the morning.

...or the night, depending on what country you're in.

kinda makes you proud to be an expatriate, doesn't it? we had electronic touch-screen voting this year. no curtains, just 2 short little blinders and a computer screen, anyone could look over your shoulder. i didn't know if i was voting or buying groceries. i miss the ceremony and mystique of the curtain (even if it is covered in filth...)

yeah, something doesn't sit right with electronic voting, it somehow seems much easier to manipulate. plus, the curtain gives the feeling that you're in a special spot in the world- that one tiny area where no one can see you, and you can express your opinion without consequence.

kinda like peeing with the door open.
