The sun is out for the first time in ten days, I was lucky number 13 voter at my precinct at 7:30, and I’ve got some Belgian Trappist Monk ale waiting for me at home.

I feel fine.

“It’s Election Day.
Remember Benghazi, and that terrorist Hasan actually worked
with racketeer/traitor Obama during the pRes_ _ential Transition.

Show your rebuke and VOTE the reprehensible, reprobate Traitor OUT.”

Was electing Obama a fluke
That’s correctable with a rebuke?
Foreign policy? Economy?
Would improve with Mitt Romney
A re-election would make me re-puke

Almost had to get feisty in the voting line. Dem sample ballots were blue, Repubs green. We being informed voters didn’t need one ; ) but there was an Americanized Asian woman behind us with a blue sample ballot. There was an elderly Asian couple behind her with questionable English. I didn’t hear what they said but heard the woman behind me say do you want this one? Are you sure you don’t want this one? The third time she said it I turned around and looked at her like WHAT are you doing? And she stopped. She knew! Seriously!! Make me report you for voter intimidation!

Ok now that I see the WFTD: I soundlessly rebuked the Asian woman with a look.
