Election Day - Post #7 - Now this worries me

I want a mandate - I want what Bush bragged about in 04 - when he gave us more of his crap about values and a safe America.

So what worries me is that there are more and more stories from PA and VA and right here in Newark, NJ about all kinds of problems.

check out what happened to Tim Robbins in NYC.

Ugh.

But on a more shallow note: doesn't Tim look fabulous with gray hair? I've always had the hots for him. ;-)

Dianne said...

pagan - he does! I have the hots for Susan too ;)

Diane Mandy said...

Ugh. I have a headache now!

Travis said...

I heard about this.

At the risk of having my Democratic paranoid card revoked, I think we must remember that there is always a certain amount of error. There isn't necessarily a nefarious purpose behind names being stricken from the rolls.

It could be simple human or machine error in some cases.

I love Tim Robbins. I'm losing my mind here. I'm about to have a heart attack. Obama HAS to win. He HAS to win. Travis is right that not everything is a plot, but give that I think the last two elections were stolen, it's hard for me not to go there. I do think that the Obama folks are more prepared to protect against it and people are more aware this time around. I hope so. Lord, I'm not sure my nerves can take much more of this.

Dianne said...

diane, raven - I'm going to go with Travis' feelings for now! Especially since I do believe Obama has good, prepared people on the ground

travis - thanks! I seem to often thank you for being a voice of reason :)

I've been nervous about a steal other issues for a while now. What broke in the last couple elections, literally and figuratively with voting hasn't been remedied. But I'm hoping hoping hoping.

WILL THEY STOP AT NOTHING????
This is so fucking discouraging and depressing.....I feel like we are living in the MOST Corrupt Times....How can something like this happen???

I cannot bear it.

The numbers are rolling in and I have my pizza. I'm feeling pretty good about things.

Dianne said...

kitty - at least in Newark Obama's lawyers were there right away. this tells me that Obama isn't going to make the mistakes that Gore made.

oldold lady of the hills - it's a worry yes but it is not desperate yet. PA Gov is on right now saying his #'s lead him to believe Obama will take PA. apparently the suburbs of Phila. have gone to Obama. plus all the inner cities and Scranton !!!
hang in there lady :)

Dianne said...

jay - the PA governor made me feel a bit better
my pizza was great!! now I want to drink but I tend to get blog sloppy if I drink.
I once commented somewhere, when drunk - "this post is such bullshit, you fucking make me sick"
charming eh?

Knight said...

Ah, I'm freakin out again!

Knight said...

I wish I was eating pizza with you and Jay instead.

Dianne said...

knight - that would be so cool. I wish we could all hang out! If you want to take a train to NJ I'll come get you at the station, you have my #.
PA has been called for Obama, that is a good thing kiddo.
