Granted, today will be nerve-racking for everyone, but today’s still my favorite day of the year. There’s something uniquely wholesome about the practice of Election Day, over a hundred million people headed to similar places to do a similar – and meaningful – thing. It doesn’t involve the consumerism of our other national holidays and hallmarks. It’s a day of reward for true believers, the ones who’ve spent all their spare hours folding mail or knocking on doors for their chosen candidate.

Gavin at Sadly, No gives us a what to watch for link with some needed corrections. Barack Obama is the president of 21 white people, at least 15 of who are named after Transformers. I’m really surprised Grimlock voted for McCain.

Do you have any traditions or superstitions you perform on election day?
