After voting early yesterday morning, I avoided news channels. It is just a personal thang, but I hate all the talking heads and the speculation. I would rather wait until morning and hear the results. At 7:00 PM last night when the news channels started their election speculation, I nearly came unglued. Good grief! The polls just closed here! What could they possibly have to say? We put on a movie at that point.
This morning, we turned on the news and all was well. The world is still revolving and life is still happening. I was a bit disappointed that Jari Askins did not win Governor of OK. She is from Duncan and does a lot for the area. I see her at all sorts of functions here. She ran a positive campaign, and I thought she was more qualified that Mary Fallin. Although Jari has never been a mother, she has not had an affair and gotten divorced either. I just like Jari.
I'm glad it is all over. Politics are yuck. I did see a news blurb yesterday on some candidate from somewhere in the US who used to be a madam/hooker. The blurb showed her giving a speech and saying something like: All politicians are whores, and I'm probably best qualified to deal with them.
