There is a definite advantage to having absentee ballots sent to your house a couple of weeks before the election. Especially an election like this one, where it is oh, so clear who we need to vote for. So Laura and I voted this morning, and now it's over and done with, and we can go on with the rest of our lives. Like watching the Red Sox win the World Series (nothing against the Cardinals, I like them, too, but if the Sox win, then we won't have to hear about any curse any longer -- until the Cubs make it...).
Oh, wait, there are lots of political ads being shown during the World Series, and any other show we want to watch... (Jeopardy! is becoming almost unwatchable for all the political ads running during it.)
Of course, those ads won't have any affect on us. We voted already!
