Only 5 More Days Until The Election
The election is only 5 days away! Imagine how much our lives are going to change in the next five days. No, not because we will be getting a new president, but because the election will be over. The coverage will be over. After 2 long years we will be able to return to our regularly scheduled lives.
Not gonna lie: the past 6-8 months have been really exciting. All this campaigning and debating and Sarah Palin-ing has been really freaking awesome. People are getting involved in politics like never before and it is just really fun to watch it all unfold. But, I can’t say that I am not a wee bit happy to see it all ending in 5 short days.
Let’s look forward to November 4th. Here is a list of pros and cons of the end of election season:
Pro: No more campaign commercials
Con: More time for these kinds of commercials
Pro: No more funny skits on SNL
Con: Unless McCain and Palin win
Pro: We will be done with the Bush administration
Con: I think I just broke a nail (that’s all I could think of)
Pro: No more “experts” on every damn channel predicting how things are going to go in the election
Con: 24 hour news shows will have to be filled with other less interesting crap
Pro: No more interruptions during Deal or No Deal for a 30 minute commercial.
Con: No more excuses to eat baked goods (“I’m supporting my candidate!”)
Pro: No more hearing about Joe the Plumber, Joe Sixpack, or any other Joe.
Con: Those guys were the closest things I’ve had to a relationship in a really long time (besides Joe I-Can’t-Last-More-Than-40-Seconds).
Pro: We will have a new president!
Con: We will still have a seriously crappy economic situation, a war with Iraq, and other really huge issues to deal with. Oh, and we still have to go to class on Election Day.
