I am so going to miss all the ads, political Facebook posts, robocalls, mailings, t-shirts, faux school elections, hysterical rhetoric, negative campaigning and a firmly divided nation.
And if you believe that, I've got a wonderful bridge I'd love for you to take a look it.
What I will actually miss is the extra week of work for Joe courtesy of Election Day set-up at McCormick Place:
The paycheck will buy me a whole lot of Red Bull and Cocoa Puffs. Joe kept calling me throughout the afternoon yesterday to see if I was watching CNN and marveling at all his hard work and glorious production preparation.
He was careful to whisper, though. I think the Secret Service may have been watching him.
And my response was truthful:
Nope. I'm doing laundry.
But thanks for keeping me in my happy, Nutella-fed lifestyle, honey.
Anyway, congratulations to Barack Obama and best wishes to Mitt Romney. At the end of all this insanity, I believe both men truly want the best for America, they just disagree on the approach.
Can we all get back to normal life and start posting pictures of our pets and kids on Facebook again?
