Is It possible?
|"You might be wrong." Those are the words of columnist Susan Nielsen in her opinion piece published last week in the Portland Oregonian. I read the article yesterday in the Dallas Morning News.|
A blogging friend o' mine, Patrick, calls people Kool Aid drinkers if they fail to consider this possibility.
I found the article intriguing just a few days before what has become the latest most important election in our lifetimes. So follow the link and let me know what you think.
Beyond that, for anyone who cares, allow me a few words on tomorrows big event.
We'll be fine! That's right. Fine. No matter who wins. If we decide we want to be. You see, that is the bigger decision we are going to face. Because about 50% of us Wednesday are going to wake up losers. And the response over the next few years of that group will do more to determine the fate of the presidency of either John McCain or Barack Obama.
Our job in this democracy is to vote. And then support the winner. Yes you can be loyal opposition, but the constant sniping at every turn, from both parties, is not what I think our founding fathers had in mind.
John McCain is not going to keep us at war for 100 years. Barack Obama is not going to make the White House a den of terrorists. Sarah Palin is not going to set up her trailer at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. And Joe Biden is not going to gaffe us into some apocalyptic war.
We'll be fine.
So Tuesday, go vote. But remember, you might be wrong.
