D-Day minus 1

I veer between giddiness and despair. Let me rephrase that. Most days I veer between giddiness and despair today amplify that by a 100 times. Election eve or as I like to refer to it as D-Day minus 1. Alternatively, America Held Hostage, Day 2125. So I've been watching all the polls and it is very good news for the Democrats. So here is where I swerve into despair territory. The polls were in our favor in 2000 and 2004 at least in the presidential elections. My thoughts are that I am increasingly worried that our election system is not broken, it's fixed. And when I say "fixed" I don't mean that in a good way. We'll know tomorrow starting when the east coast polls are closed. If all of a sudden the races fall the Republican way, especially in Maryland and Virginia, let alone Pennsylvania then you will have to beat me to Travelocity for a one-way ticket out of the Banana Republic of America.

In my college days I used to dismiss the conspiracy nuts and the wild-eyed types arguing that this country is really controlled by a small group of people. If Rick Santorum wins in Pennsylvania you can call me a nut too. If Mike DeWine wins in Ohio call me a conspiracy theorist too. That's my greatest fear. If any of that happens I won't just pack up the blog and go home, I'll pack up my home and go blog - from the Cayman Islands. In the words of Rhoda Morgenstern, "America, this is your last chance."

So I invite everyone over to my election command central tomorrow night. If things go well for the Democrats we can celebrate by popping the cork on a whole bunch of Mums. (Meet the Parents lovers you know what I mean.) If Santorum and/or DeWine win you all can help me pack up my things for shipping.

My party features Krug, Clos du Mesnil 1995, but you'll have to move fast to get here. My boat leaves for Dominica at high tide tomorrow.

Are you going to buy the food, or is it BYO, as it is on the train? I'm undecided Seals/Kirk, so you did a good job.
