It’s PMS! It’s bipolar disorder! It’s being mom to two 2 year-olds!
NOPE, it’s this damn election. The stress is killing me.
When I hear that Obama is going to win in a landslide, I feel like I can conquer the world.
When I hear that the Republicans are engaging in unethical tactics to keep poor and minority people away from the polls, I become furious.
When I read that MoveOn’s call parties made a whopping 373,000 calls to get volunteers active in swing states, my heart sings.
When I read that with a small margin, the Republican party can easily steal this election, just like they did in 2000 and 2004, I want to rip out my hair from the fury.
I’m up… when we hosted a MoveOn call party last weekend and I talked to so many people excited to volunteer, so many people already volunteering who told me about the change they see in their community as a result of their work. Thrilled that they got 50 people registered to vote…
I’m down…But, then one of those calls was a McCain/Palin supporter. And she told me, and I quote, “You people are being terribly mislead.” US? We’re being mislead????? Left me utterly distraught by the injustice of it all. The murderous irony.
I’m ready for November 5th. I’m ready to wake up in the morning and jump up and down, thrilled beyond belief that Barack Obama is the 44th President of the United States…
