At last.....

.....time to actually vote.  Sent my ballot in yesterday (here in Oregon all voting is by mail), voting not only for Hillary but for Democrats all the way down -- I know who's on my side.  Oregon is a solid blue state, but the size of the popular-vote margin does matter, even if only psychologically.

Now, everyone else get out and vote too!  Nothing must spoil my much-anticipated night of gloating two weeks from today!

A few links to get you fired up:

The Trumpanzees are trying to steal North Carolina.

If you doubt that the US is a very culturally-diverse nation, check out this festival in Kentucky, celebrating a culture of which most liberals know little -- but we know how they'll vote.

If Trump wins, the Supreme Court gets at least one more Scalia.

It took time, but Trump has won the firm support of the white-supremacist crowd.

So, uh, on Election Day do you Oregonians just gather in the town square for games and bbq?

(pining for the day when everyone traveled to the county courthouse to cast their ballots)

No, we gather on the internet to watch the election results and mock the Republicans. I don't know what they do in the rural, Republican-leaning parts of the state -- gather on the internet and bitch about Portland outnumbering them, I suppose.

Their faith in him actually believing anything at all is touching.

In two weeks I'll be settled in for a long, but satisfying, day of election inspecting. Bring on the Trumpinistas. I'll fill in my circles then. It's sad that you can't make them into happy faces.

Oddly enough I bought a (very cheesy) Knob Creek mug (celebrating the KY Whiskey) for my brother. It was in a shop called "Bankrot" (Bankrupt) in Prague of all places. If you have never been to Prague I strongly advise it. It is brilliantly mental. My wife and I were dining by the river and a platoon of Edwardian-dressed gents went past on penny-farthings. Anywhere else that might have seemed unusual. But then the Charles Bridge boasted the "rodent balancer". A man in monk's garb with a labrador dog who balanced a tower of rodents on it's back for a few Crowns. And great, cheap beer and deep-fried cheese and culture out the kazoo. Great city.

Funny thing, one of my Trumpanzee high school friends shared a post purporting to show a picture of an Oregon ballot that had Hillary Clinton twice and didn't have Donald Trump. Of course, a few minutes of searching on Google turned up that it was a photoshopped picture and I had to give my friend a public spanking in the comments section to his post. It's almost like a cult with these people. It seems to run like this:

1. I believe everything Donald Trump says.

2. Donald Trump says the voting machines are rigged against him.

3. A handful of voters claim voting machines switched their votes for Donald Trump to Hillary Clinton.

4. I believe the claims without trying to really investigate if they are true or allow for possibility that the said voters making the claim made a mistake and I will share it on Facebook.

Kevin: You'll have to settle for helping to give the Trumpanzees sad faces.

Nick: I've heard Prague is fun. I just hope it's not too overrun with German tourists.

Shaw: Excellent!

Tommy: It's a completely separate alternate reality. I don't know if there's anything we can do about it except wait for them to die off.
