Alarming News

Big Day

Today is the Republican primary here in Georgia. If you live in Georgia or know someday who does, vote for Herman Cain and encourage others to do the same. If you’re coming to his victory party tonight (and if you live in Georgia, email me- and soon- and I’ll send you the details) and it looks like I haven’t slept in a month, it’s because I haven’t slept in a month.

In other news, today is 26 years that I have lived in the USA. I have been thankful every single day and continue to marvel at my luck at ending up here. I don’t know if I will have the time to do a full post on this occasion like I like to do each year so I direct you to the post I wrote last year, complete with a photo of me the day I got my citizenship.

What does a campaign staff do on election day? I know they party on election night.

Best of luck in the election. At least from afar, it looks like your guy may be able to force a runoff.
And congrats on the 26 years.

Good luck!!

Good luck!!! If Cain wins the nomination, it’ll be a big victory for conservatives.

I don’t know what it is they do on election day, but evidently, it doesn’t involve reading my blog. Thus, I do not approve.

I agree with candace, Karol is creepy!!
P.S. Jake, thanks for the DVDs — I wrote a whole post about it. Karol has now challenged me to a duel. :)

It looks like Isakson got barely enough votes to avoid a runoff – excellent campaign though – most of the articles I read this morning almost completely ignore isakson and talk about how effective cain was…

Alceste, it’s bad enough that you’re a Dick Cheney apologist, why are you now trying toencourage campaigning for conservatives? I think we need to bring you in for reprogramming. Please visit me here immediately.

It was 27 years for me in June. Week in Vienna, 6 months in Italy … the whole bit. BTW, I added you to my blogroll, as promised.
