And you're terrified it's going to be positive.

Laurie said...

Leanna said...

That's exactly how it feels right now.

Laura said...

I can't believe the race is so tight and still undecided. After four years of John Iselin or Buzz Windrip as POTUS, seriously? I'm both anxious and angry and I'm not even American!

e said...

The anxiety and stress are sky high right now...

Linda dev said...

Perfect analogy. Dread, pure dread

Mike said...

Exactly.

Martha said...

LOL, you are so right on that!

bobbie said...

Ayep!!

anne marie in philly said...

YASSSSS! 80% of PA ballots counted as of 2:30p.

Sixpence Notthewiser said...

You're absolutely right.
The symptoms are: unbridled fuckery and widespread corruption. It seems we have it. The cure is at hand, the question is, does the country want it?

XOXO

Not just the whole country. I see the U.S. leaving the Paris climate change accord came into effect today.

Marie Smith said...

Oh my! We truly are!

Cynthia said...

I wanted a landslide. Silly me. Half the country is demented. Yes, I know. We all need to learn to get along. But how?

Fundy Blue said...

I'm a little calmer today, Debra. It's probably exhaustion from being so uncalm yesterday. My siblings keep calling to make sure I'm coping. I'm just happy that there is no civil unrest so far. One hour at a time!

Bea said...

The majority of us seem to be A-OK with racism and I find that sickening.

Tundra Bunny said...

I feel your pain, America. Who would have thought there'd be so many brain-dead voters left after 4 years of the orange ass-monkey?

We have our problems here too, yet I AM TRULY THANKFUL TO BE CANADIAN!

Joanne Noragon said...

Too funny. Too true.

Suz said...

HA. But, yes. ;(

LL Cool Joe said...

Keeping everything crossed.

Infidel753 said...

Yes, it is stressful. I stayed up until around midnight on the 3rd, hoping for definitive results. We have more hateful people in our country than we thought, and it's disturbing.

But Biden is winning. The stamina of all those tens of millions who stood in line for hours to vote is paying off. Trump is whining and pouting and threatening lawsuits which have no conceivable legal basis, but the fact remains, he's losing.

Kirk said...

I posted this exact comment on another person's blog, so excuse me if I plagiarize myself.


The latest electoral results:

Biden: 264
Trump: 214

For months Biden supporters have been encouraged to mail in their ballots rather then show up on Election Day. Well, when enough people do that, it takes a little longer to get the count right. Biden won handily, and we would have known that Tuesday night under normal circumstances.

U r not alone, friend D. We r still standing :) Love, cat. https://youtu.be/M5ny5tMsxrs

Karen thisoldhouse2.com said...

LOL..... I am still hopeful for sanity and decency to win.

Brian Joseph said...

Ha! Ha! Unfortunately it is never re like we have had the STD and we are trying to get rid of it.

Travel said...

I needed the laugh, still counting.

This N That said...

So true... counting, counting,Counting.

Martha said...

HAHAHA! What a great way to put it!

Lady M said...

No sleep Tues. night. Feel like I am on pins and needles all the time. Soothed my soul yesterday evening with some beers and another viewing of Borat subsequent movie film.

Linda said...

Not only for the U.S., I'm in Belgium and am nervous too, the outcome of this election affects the whole world. Frightening isn't it...

Adam said...

Trump looks like he’s losing, Time to fire him.

Bill Lisleman said...

I wonder what magical drug the orange twitter chief would take for that.

JACKIESUE said...

even if he loses..we're not getting rid of him that easy..he's fighting to stay out of jail.

Magaly Guerrero said...

That, my beloved Debra, is the best description of this seemingly perpetual state of anxiety I've ever read.

Parnassus said...

We were always told that it is only a few rotten apples that spoil the barrel. Well, it turns out that there are a lot more than a few!

Polly said...

ha ha, very good :-)

baili said...

you said it all :)
best wishes anyway !

Empty Nest Insider said...

Yep, and just when we think it’s gone for good...it keeps coming back for more. Hopefully, there will soon be a light at the end of the tunnel. In the meantime, thanks for the laugh, Debra!

Aint that the truth!

Ur-spo said...

Saturday morning here: my test results are 'positive' in a good way.

Sue Bursztynski said...

Well done, US, from a country being run by a Trump fanboy! Be proud you managed to get him out - with luck, we can get rid of ours next time, as we have compulsory voting, so it has to be made easy, but you guys fought voter suppression and you won.
