Tonight I was going to try to write one last post unrelated to the election, but there isn’t really much else on my mind. I finished writing my wrap-up post a little while ago. I’ll publish it tomorrow, and that will be the last WmWms post until Wednesday.
The first presidential election in which I voted was 1992. (I missed eligibility for 1988 by just a few months.) So Tuesday will be number five for me. Only in 1996 has the person I voted for lost.
How do you watch election coverage? Do you enjoy it, or do you just consider it getting the news? I like it, myself.
There are many things I find obnoxious about Dan Rather (and with good reason), but there’s little doubt that his quirkiness serves him well for election coverage. I may flip over and see how/what he’s doing on HDNet. The rest of the time I’ll switch between Fox and CNN, and probably have The Corner going on my laptop (if they can handle the traffic; they weren’t prepared for it during the debates).
It’s almost over, folks.
Whatever your friends, neighbors, relatives, coworkers and so forth have to say in the next couple of days, remember that they’ll still be around when all of this has faded.
