So much for the optimistic nocturnal babblings of my cerebral cortex
I am trying to find a silver lining. Really. At least Bush has to clean up his own record-setting deficit and his own Middle East mess (so where is Bin Laden...you know...the one who actually attacked us?) and Kerry won't look bad for failing to do so (which very well could have happened, especially with a Republican-controlled executive branch). But on the way home, I saw a lone Kerry sign against the bleak twilight landscape of the highway, and its now-seemingly-futile cheery optimism made me tear up. I had a similar reaction to the one in our front yard. I think I just need one night to get it out. I hope it will wind up better than I am fearing it will.
