A few election thoughts:

1. If there is a higher power, it had better come through big today.

2. In my most pessimistic moments today, I think the Republican goons in Ohio will cost Kerry the election. Even if it doesn't cost him the election, the fallout from this will make Florida look like child's play. Cheating in Florida is one thing, but proto-fascist thuggery is a whole other ballgame.

3. In my most optimistic moments, the numbers from early votes, which have shown Kerry up by more than the poll numbers suggest, make me feel that Kerry will win, that it will be clear by this evening, and that it will show the disgust that over 1/2 of the nation feels toward this administration.
