Election Day USA

Well, an historic day is underway. Are you optimistic? As for me, I’m as nervous a Frenchman at Oktoberfest.

If you’re a Republican and believe in the accuracy of Karl Rove you’re not optimistic. But there are many variables that aren’t being taken into account by pollsters and pundits, so I’m not convinced it’s a lock for Obama.

The first bit of bad news for Republicans is that the Steelers beat the Redskins last night, and the Redskins Rule says that’s good news for Obama.

I’m going to try to stick to a single post today, adding updates as news warrants. I might start a new post in the evening as the returns begin to be announced.

If you’re out voting and get an interesting picture or have an odd story, you can send it to me here and I’ll get it posted.

Now let’s get out and vote. To say that our wallets and freedoms are in the cross-hairs of foaming at the mouth liberals would be an understatement.

Here’s hoping that Election Day doesn’t turn into Fright Night.

Update: This picture says it all.

Update II: I went to vote at about 10 o’clock figuring the lines would have tapered off in between the morning and lunch rushes — I was wrong. But that’s a good thing, especially since I’m in a heavily Republican county. I waited over an hour and everything seemed to run as smoothly as possible. I wish I had a wacky disenfranchisement story to pass along, but I don’t. Of course, I live in a township that makes Mayberry RFD look like Gotham City.

Update III: William Ayers has cast his ballot, but he refused to say who he voted for. Aw shucks, now we’ll never know who he supports.

Update IV: Here’s the best advice you can get today — and from a Hillary supporter no less.

Update V: Video of a Black Panther member waving around a billy club in front of a Philadelphia polling place. He’s there to, ya know, make sure that nobody intimidates any voters (h/t Michelle Malkin):

Update VI: Obama actually has a disenfranchised voter hotline. Call 1-877-US-4-OBAMA (or fill out this form) to inform them of any voting problems you see. Well, not any problems — like the Black Panthers in the video above… they probably don’t care about that so much.

Update VII: How come almost every bit of election trickery that requires a brain-dead idiot as a victim is directed toward Democrat voters? This one’s old as Moses, but apparently still works: Some of the voters said they were robocalled last night. The message — Democrats weren’t supposed to vote until Wednesday. We’ll never know how many fell for it… unless we want to sit outside that building tomorrow and count them as they arrive. On this same topic, here’s example #2.

Update VIII: Fidel Castro endorses Obama… sort of. “Change”?

Update IX: Feelgood news of the day: Libtard actor Tim Robbins has been soundly disenfranchised.

Update X: If I’d have known that Obama was going to pay for my gas and mortgage, I may have reconsidered and voted for him. How come it is you always find these things out when it’s too late?
