Post-election

Filed under: How it works,Uncategorized — Kaddee @ 2:25 pm

The much-touted US election has been blogged to death elsewhere, so I will add merely a little slice of Egypt to the mix.

All the hoopla and run-up to the election was felt here, but only for one candidate. As far as I can tell (and remember, I’m firmly ensconced in the proverbial Ivory Tower) there was “only one REAL candidate”, and it would be an “overwhelming, tsunami of popular vote” for said candidate.

Well, although that didn’t happen (even though otherwise statistically savvy academics are STILL claiming a landslide victory) the jubilation here was incredible.

In all that, I waited. And I waited. And I waited.

As a good democratic (not in the “Which party do you belong to” sense) citizen, I was prepared to exercise my right to express my opinion. I understand that in my state of residence, my vote is not really necessary, as the state ALWAYS goes one way.

Even so, I was patiently waiting to be a part of the process.

WELL NOW MY TIME HAS COME. My state and federal elections ballot was delivered to my desk today.

LOL – HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM, who should I vote for?
