The Day After

Pennsylvania has spoken. And I'm tired.

Tired not only in the "working the election for 17 hours" sense, but also in the sense of "how much longer will this go on?"

Barack and Hillary and their crowds and volunteers and bowling balls and whiskey shots have vanished from the Keystone State. Camp Clinton and Camp Obama are now set up in North Carolina and Indiana. Cheesesteak stories will be replaced by Southern barbecue.

Doubtless, we'll hear two more weeks (and probably more) of stump speeches, traded barbs, and gaffes.

Meanwhile, John McCain will be sitting pretty: relaxing, networking, strategizing. He and his cohorts will select the worst video clips of the Democrats and work them into ads and speeches. Every day the Obama vs Clinton bout continues, it's a gift to the Arizona senator.

I keep hearing wry comments about Democrats "snatching defeat out of the jaws of victory."

We're not really going to do this to ourselves, are we?

Yep. We are. The Dems LOVE their circular firing squad - I'd be Libertarian f my state recognized the party, but since it doesn't I'm Independent, the Dems disappoint me that much.

Oh girl, I missed you. I totally agree with this post. I am really afraid that we are shooting ourselves in the foot by delaying the choice of candidates. Johnny boy must be eating this up with a spoon. Grrrr!
