An Uneasy Peace

I’ve mentioned before that I am one-half of a politically divided marriage.  Although my other half and I aren’t really that far apart on the issues (we’re both essentially Libertarian, but he takes the fiscal route to the GOP while I take the social issues yellow brick road and side with the Dems), we definitely want our respective candidates to win tomorrow night.  Whatever happens, one of us is going to be deeply unhappy, and while I am looking forward to the excitement of election night, I am dreading that final moment when one of us is holding back the victory dance and the other is bracing for the next four years.  Election night 2000 was the unhappiest of moments, and I do not desire a repeat.

See y’all on the other side.
