Election Day! 2012

8:25 p.m. Wow. This is not looking like a Romney night. I'll say this. If 50+% of this country is stupid enough to put O back into office, then I quit. I won't be be blogging here anymore. This might be my last post.

1:14 p.m. Good grief. Some Philadelphia polling place had a bigger-than-lifesized mural of Obama hanging on their wall. They were ordered by a judge to cover it up. I can't even wear a "Romney" button on my coat at my polling place. That would be "electioneering" within a polling place, which is prohibited in Missouri and probably most other states as well. Oh, if I want to vote, I also need a photo ID.

11:30 a.m. We just got back from voting. I've voted in the same place for over 20 years. The line was "middlin'" long--about average--didn't go out the door. If the line isn't out the door between 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. tonight, then this is definitely not a big year for voting in my liberal town. I asked one of the election officials how the turnout seemed to her. She said that 2008 was big, but this year was "bigger." I'll just have to take her word for it, since while I was there, it didn't seem that way to me.

8:16 a.m. Breitbart Big Journalism has a *Live Blog* of Election Day News that will be ignored by the Obamamedia. Refresh the site throughout the day.

7:30 a.m. We live next door to the polling place. My town is very, very liberal, and voting day in 2008 was very, very depressing. This morning--No lines! I can't see a soul outside the door of the polling place. In 2008, there were happy, happy people waiting in long lines to vote all day long.

7:00 a.m. I've been predicting a Romney blowout for weeks--a landslide! I just haven't wanted to say it too loud. Hurricane Sandy came along, and I thought, Uh-oh. But that was just a blip for Obama. Mitt is going to win today, and win big, win convincingly. I will keep track of the day here.

Why do I think Mitt is going to win? The polls have been crazy. They've made no sense. Someone said last night that we're finally going to find out which pollsters had their thumb on the scales. I've been looking at the polls, but I've been looking at other things, too.

The crowds. Wow, the size and enthusiasm of the Romney crowds has been something to see--28,000 in Morrisville, PA last night; 30,000 in West Chester, Ohio on Friday. On the other side, Obama just doesn't have it. Even with Bruce Springsteen there to draw people to the venue, they could only drag in 18,000--in Madison, Wisconsin, a town with a campus size of some 50,000. Hey Barry, they're just not that into you. Well, that's OK, because he's not that into us, either.

Then you look at the people on each side talking about their candidate and their campaign. On the Sunday shows, David Plouffe, Obama's campaign boy, looked like he was going to slit his throat. Debbie Washerwoman-Schultz could only talk about Florida voter fraud. And that snarky, snotty little human being, Stephanie Cutter, Barry's deputy campaign manager, came out yesterday to tell the Obamabat base, "Don't panic," despite what they hear today. Heh. No, really, they should panic.

The lamestream media. May they all be visited with boils in inconvenient places. I love this one: "Andrea Mitchell: If Pennsylvania's in Play, It's Over for Obama." Well, IT'S OVER, BABY, but it ain't just over for Obama. It's over for people like you, you dessicated freak. Imagine Andrea without plastic surgery. No, on second thought, don't, because she's only about 85 years old, and it would definitely not be a pretty sight. Be sure to read this from The Daily Caller by Tucker Carlson and Neil Patel: "Wave goodbye to the Obama media." And GOOD RIDDANCE!

And then there are the candidates themselves. Romney, looking presidential, looking like a winner. He's happy, relaxed, and energized. Obama looks like he's grimly hanging on for dear life, but of course Google and the lamestream media don't report that--or try not to. This is from the Washington Post opinion section by Richard Cohen: "The president who seems not to care." It captures Obama to a "T."
