As much as I expected what happened to happened, it's still hard to believe it actually happened. My biggest hope is that the people I entrusted with this country's future will govern like a party that just kicked the other one to the curb.
Sadly, my comedy dream of Senator Al Franken seems to be coming to an end. This led to the following conversation last night:
Me: Looks like Al Franken is just barely losing. Oh well, I'm not really sure he would have been a good Senator. It would be like if I was running for the Senate.
The Lovely Becky: Yeah, exactly. No offense, sweetie.
Me: None taken. I would last about three days on the campaign trail. Some reporter would ask me, "Mr. Brando, what do you think about your opponent's accusations?" and I would say something like, "I think he should gargle my balls," and then it would all be over.
Speaking of The Lovely Becky, she has some serious election day cute over at her place.
