2 years ago

two years ago last night, bush was re-elected (apparently). i've been reflecting on where i was then. hard to forget the feeling of that madison ballroom in which we were flopped, heads flung back, jaws wide, gawking at the big screens broadcasting voting results from several major networks. we sunk deeper and deeper into despair as the results painted a bleaker and bleaker picture. too tired to even be shocked - the fatigue was palpable. that was two years ago. so now, as we inch closer to the upcoming mid-term elections, all my fingers and toes are crossed that the tide might turn. many are predicting we can take the House, but dammit, i want the senate too. but where the electorate is concerned (especially theirs), i've learned to keep expectations low. god bless america.
