What a strange evening. My teeth hurt from a very long overdue cleaning — I’ve felt strange all day long and a bit out of it. Now I’m getting antsy. I couldn’t even sit through the SNL Presidential Bash 08 special — nothing’s funny right now. I want to get to the polls at 7 in the morning. I don’t expect lines at my polling place, but to be on the safe side… I teach three one-hour-and-twenty-minute freshman comp. classes back-to-back tomorrow, and I don’t know how I’m going to concentrate.
Our nation hangs in the balance. Maybe there isn’t that much difference between Republicans and Democrats these days, but I know I want the party that does not rely on racism, ethnocentrism, xenophobia, jingoism, and lies. I think there is one huge chasm separating these two campaigns and these two tickets.
I want to wake up Wednesday morning with the outcome that will steer us towards our better selves.
