Letís go make history today! Obamaís closing ad features Paul Simonís 1973 ďAmerican TuneĒ Ė highly appropriate and one of Commentaryís favorite that I know all the words to.
ďManyís the time Iíve been mistaken
ĒI donít know a soul whoís not been battered
ĒAnd I dreamed I was dying
ĒWe come on the ship they call the Mayflower
On to more important stuff, I have to strongly disagree with my local Dem Party on the legality of plungers at the polls. I donít think the election code addresses plungers. If we mount an effort to snatch the plungers away from GOP workers, we risk wading knee deep in GOP doodoo around 7 pm this evening. Letís just stay on message and snatch away their dogs, cats, and significant others but let them keep their plungers.
Commentary predicts over 70% turnout in Harris County and a great night for local Dems.
Commentary also predicts the end of Texas House Speaker Tom Craddick.
Commentary also predicts the local GOP Party will be in severe turmoil this evening Ė like finger pointing, name calling, consultant bashing, coup plotting, job hunting Ė you know, stuff local Dems used to go through on a regular basis.
Commentary will also be glad to see the end of Junior Senator Cornponeís cornpone ďCity SlickersĒ ads.
Last nightís ďSNLĒ was pretty much reruns but I have to hand it to McCain and Governor Palin for being good sports this season.
I wonder if you can be denied entry to a polling place for wearing a Tina Fey ď30 RockĒ T-Shirt.
My old pal Nancy Sims who knows a whole lot about politics will be giving her election takes tonight on Channel 39 during periodic breaks and from 9 to 10 pm during their news hour Ė check her out to get the local flavor.
Carol Alvarado will be hosting her Election Night Celebration this evening at Doneraki at Gulfgate which is at the Gulf Freeway and Woodridge.
Nothing to report from The Yard today.
