OMG, best thing ever! Gaz and I just left and came back from Cosi, which I might add is better than Panera and Atlanta Bread combined, and we saw quite a spectacle on the way there: someone had life-size dummies of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney tacked to a tree in their front lawn with a sign reading "DISASTER" between them that encouraging people to go out and vote. It was amazing, yet disturbing and I'm fairly certain illegal on some level.

Poll standing this morning went well even though it was a bit chilly. Another Lieberman pollstander was dropped off shortly after I arrived by the campaign. He was up from Washington DC to help with the campaign. So I got to chat with him and that was cool. I didn't try to hand out any of the flyers that Joe's office gave us, just pretty much said good morning, thanked people who indicated they voted for Joe for their support, and threw in a "Don't forget to vote for Joe!" here and there. For the most part people were polite but a few were pretty snitty. My favorites:

"Good morning!"
"Disloyal sonofabitch."


"Good morning!"
"When are you kids going to Iraq?"

What I should of said was, "Probably shortly after Ned Lamont is elected senator and they pull all the troops from Iraq. Shouldn't be too long before Iran invades and then they are forced to reinstate the draft and we send 500,000 troops over instead of the 140,000 there now. So, sir, if your candidate wins, only a matter of time."

But instead I just stand there doumbfounded. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but seriously all I did was tell you to have a good morning. No need for that, seriously.

So yeah, I'm going back after work until polls close, then I have to call in the results to the Lieberman camp. After that I'm thinking I'll head over to what will hopefully be a victory party at the swanky Goodwin Hotel. Politics really isn't that bad if it means free food and open bars for me! Alright, back to work. Later, skaterz.
