Could It Be?

A young, charismatic President-Elect.

An overwhelming electoral victory placing a Democrat from a hitherto-unelectable background in the most powerful office in the US.

Dancing in the streets.

It's like 1960 all over again.

And he's even Irish - doesn't get better than that.

Well done, America - thank you kindly.

America, The World Is Watching...

In just under two hours, polls begin to close in the easternmost states of the U.S., shortly after which we should begin to get some idea whether there will indeed be change in the White House, or four more years...

My regular reader (you know who you are) will recall an earlier post in which I relayed a report suggesting Diebold inadvertently gave away the name of the winner in advance.

It'd be funny if it wasn't so scary.

I'm putting on a pot of coffee; it's gonna be a long night.

The world is watching.
