Before it all goes down, I just have to get my 2 cents or so in on this historic midterm election. I'm going to avoid pettiness or any urge to say I told you so. (I'll just be not-so-secretly doing a happy dance all over the joint!)
So all I have to add to this event is this: I would so much rather be represented by a closer to typical American, not perfectly polished, not a professional political manipulator. The best person for any job is someone who takes in information, makes sound decisions, and tries diligently to do their best at said job. I hope the results of this election can help to get our country on a track to actually be a place where average people can contribute in real ways to our wonderful historic tradition.
If you voted, thank you for fulfilling your honorable duty. If not, I hope you feel more compelled to do so in the future.
