Quietly losing it with election jitters

Please, may Obama win. (He will. He HAS to.)
Please, may a certain faction in power in the Republican party not steal the election (or at least not succeed, if they try).

GAH.

Hold me.

Or tell me a joke. Anyone know any good jokes? Please?

    I am freaking out too. Have you seen this? It made me cry, so it will either be cathartic and sweet or just too depressing. I don’t know which.

    I can’t think of a joke right now to save my life.

    My little guy is just starting to grasp the concept of a joke. One of his recent favorites: Why did the duck say quack quack quack? Because he’s a DUCK!! (follow with uproarious laughter and act mighty pleased with yourself)

    We’re right with you with the extreme jitters here in Rockport, Massachusetts. Plus, we have our Senatorial candidate to worry about. We’re pretty sure that the latest Kennedy scion will win his race, but he’s not running from our district. Sorry about no joke – just don’t have one in me at the moment.

    What do you call an alligator in a vest?
    - an investigator!

    I’m managing my stress by staying off Facebook and Twitter today. Just got back from a good hard run. That helped too.

    A joke for you, pretty indicative of my joke-telling abilities:

    Why are anteaters so healthy?

    Because they’re full of little antibodies!

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    I’ve been telling that one since third grade.

    Yeah. I know. Sorry.

    When I need a joke I remember the episode of Friends where Frank and Phoebe are talking about the triplets. Leslie made up a joke:

    What’s green and says “Hey, I’m a frog”?

    A talking frog.

    Cracks me up every time. Unlike the possible election results.

    What with Sandy and living in Staten Island plus having a friend with a month-old baby temporarily living with me I had not had a chance to check blogs in a while so I am late to the party.

    I still have a joke for you that will make you laugh: Mitt Romney and his party lost!! And Karl Rove is going to be slowly roasted in a spit!

    Did you laugh? I know I am still laughing. Obama won even in Staten Island.

    Judith, I am LAUGHING MY ASS OFF.

    I read somewhere today…where someone who had not voted, like myself, responded to someone chiding him for this “horrid act”:

    “Oh, you still believe in the illusion of choice?”

  10. JudithNYC says:

    I do. If not, the other side would not have spent gazillion dollars and countless efforts trying to get people like me (single mother, woman of color, “not real American”) to stay away from the polls.
