Cute highway billboard we saw while in Arizona a couple of weeks ago. Don’t know about you, but I’m more than ready for these elections to be over. The debates were not terribly informative and at times testy, though the Presidential campaign ads were run with considerably more dignity than the local ads in some of the areas we’ve been in over the past month. In Illinois the TV campaign sound bites were downright nasty, making the days of Blagojevich seem like Ozzie and Harriet.
You never know how unforseen events will tip the scales, and chances are that the Sandy disaster may prove to be Barack’s windfall today. Aside from understandably having a national platform of visibility over the past week, media outlets have been strangely silent about Mitt over the same time period. Some have taken Governor Chris Christie to task for not re-affirming his support of Romney more forcefully. Others have gone as far as to suggest that CC is positioning himself for his own run in 2016.
And due to mother nature’s vagaries, with makeshift voting, we may have another version of 2012 as The Year of the Chad, and a disputed election outcome.
