Beautiful Morning in Blue San Francisco

Up at 6:15 a.m. Could tell by the light starting to stream in between the blinds that a very beautiful San Francisco day was dawning. New apartment, delighted to see by looking at the wireless modem that the DSL had come on in time for Election Day. Padded downstairs, started touring the blogs for any kind of reassurance that Kerry has it in the bag. Didn't get any. Off to my polling place by 8:15, found line of about 25 people, some anxiously looking at their watches, wondering how long it was going to take as they clearly needed to get to work. Got to the head of the line a half hour later, spent some of it talking to the other people in line, the rest figuring out some remaining ballot propositions.

Working at home today, so drove back to my apartment. Marveled at how much crap John Kerry has taken when the reality (or at least my reality) is that he's contested an incumbent president in the midst of what has been framed as a war to a dead heat (which likely means he'll win big, as polls seem to consistently undercount Democrats, as they did in 2000). Subsequently happened across this marvelous blog entry from Brad DeLong that summed my feelings quite nicely, although I would have added more direct props for Big John.

Net, it's a beautiful day in San Francisco, and I look forward to it becoming even more beautiful as day stretches into night.

Kerry alleged that millions of black voters were disenfranchised, without a shred of evidence. Democratic tactic - don't pony up with evidence, just make really awful charges.

John Kerry has taken crap because he is crap. He stabbed his country and his fellow soldiers in the back in 1971 and hasn't slowed down since. But since you folks are more than happy to see this country cease to exist and become some sort of communist utopia like the USSR (remember them?), why should I be surprised when wanna-be communists vote for traitors?

Proud to be a Democrat?
Proud to be an idiot!
