Gearing up for the November election

I received my absentee ballot this weekend and have never been more excited to cast my vote. Regardless who is elected there will be a “first” in the next administration. But this has been a long, expensive, nasty election so, frankly, I cannot wait for it to be over. You already know where I stand and I refuse to waste electrons castigating or defending either candidate or his policies. We are beyond words and now it is time to act.

2008 Election: POTUS Ballot for Washington


In recognition of yesterday’s historic development in the Democratic primary, I wanted to take a moment to celebrate Barack Obama’s accomplishment as becoming the first, non-White, male to secure the party’s nomination for POTUS. He and his wife Michelle truly embody pursuit of the American dream.

Some said this day would never come. T.O. would say, “Getcha popcorn ready.”
