5 Things I’m Looking Forward to on November 6th

Sandy has hit and the clean up will soon begin. Our thoughts are with those who’ve suffered from the storm. While we watch and wait, I thought we could all use a laugh or two. If you wonder why I’m so confident, go read my post Polls That Matter over at P&L, then come back and join in the fun.

Here’s what I’m most looking forward to on election night:

5. Chris Matthew’s meltdown/ commitment to The Mayo Clinic (Will Jesse Jackson, Jr. be his roommate?).

4. The hit wonderboy Nate “Poblano” Silver‘s career will take. (Warning: Kos link)

3. The finalization of the Obama’s Hawaiian mortgage.

2. The oceanic rise due to the volume of Obot tears.

1. Mitt Romney’s victory speech.

What are you looking forward to? This is an open thread.

  1. being able to take a deeep unrestrained cleansing breath for the first time in 4 years.

  2. fif says:

    Do you have any thoughts about voter turn-out and its affect from Sandy? I am just waiting for President Showboat to milk this for all it’s worth in an effort to save himself.

  3. looking forward to the destruction and demise of OFA- and the return of the Old Coalition D party!(Sans Brazile, axelrove, rahm etc)

  4. Shez ZK says:

    Love your list Lola! Is that a small typo in line #4 “career will take.”, which should read “will tank” ?

  5. Lulu says:

    I’m looking forward to a Romney administration getting down to business. All of the showboating, lying, faking, and baloney being left out in the WH lawn for passersby to marvel at the wreck. I am looking forward to the press reporting the facts, only the facts, or I will continue to ignore them and they can go bankrupt. I am also looking forward to Congressional Democrats getting with the program of working out some solutions or they will be ignored. Goodbye Harry and Nancy you dirty frauds.

    This is going to sound terrible. I am a bad person. I am looking forward to one of the ads for legalizing assisted suicide to stop running. If if doesn’t stop soon, I’m going to find the woman and kill her myself.

    • darraghcmurphy says:

      Is it the woman in the ad against assisted suicide? If so, I’ll help.

    • Lulu says:

      I am constantly amazed at people who want laws for every damn thing. If you want to end it all it is fairly easy unless you are a moron. Most doctors will quietly give a terminally ill person the drugs to do it if they choose. And if you are going to be dead anyway why the hell would you care if it is illegal. It seems like emotional blackmail to drag family members or friends into their last drama.

      • Constance says:

        The thing is once a dying person enters an institution they are seen as a meal ticket and everything is done to keep them hanging on for profit. Both of my parents were begging to die (in their 90s) but unfortunately went into hospital as emergencies and were sent straight to nursing homes whom I had to fight with to get hospice care ONLY. Meanwhile they were extracting Medicare payments for unneeded procedures and I was paying $8,000. a month and having daily arguments with my Dad who was in pain and couldn’t move about why I wouldn’t bring him his gun. There needs to be an official right to die for people who end up in the grip of health institutions.

        • Lulu says:

          I am so sorry that you and your parents had to go through that ordeal. I agree that people should have the power to choose hospice only or like my father who chose to go home against hospital policy to pass away.

        • elliesmom says:

          Dealing with the deaths of all four of our parents has given elliesdad and me the full range of experiences. One died in the hospital very much as you described, one died at home under hospice care, one died fighting for every breath and wanting every bit of medical intervention possible, and one by taking it into his own hands. My only problem with making assisted suicide legal is being sure the decision is being made by the person dying. I might have stopped treatment for one of our parents if I could have, but in hindsight, as painful as it was to stand by and watch, the doctors were doing what he wanted them to do.

        • Sorry you had to go through that- I have a similar story- Dad did not want to be on machines, yet when he came up from the OR after unsuccessful surgery for a brain aneurysm – he was on a ventilator. We/he had provided the hospital and physician and surgeon with his legal documents- but they did what they damn well wanted.
          It took five days for him to bleed out- never regaining consciousness.
          But they were getting their Medicare and supplemental in large amounts.

      • elliesmom says:

        My dad watched my mom die from cancer. When he found out he had cancer himself, he went through the first round of treatment. When it made no difference at all, he opted for palliative care only. At Thanksgiving he was well enough to take his whole family out to dinner and to be the life of the party. The only sign that he was ill was the oxygen tank he had by his seat. When I started to make plans with him for Christmas, he told me he wasn’t going to be here. And he wasn’t. No questions were ever asked, but if someone had asked me, I could honestly say I had no idea how he did it. When I left him the night before he died, his last words to me were, “The King is dead. Long live the Queen.” He had teased me about no one dying and making me queen since I was a kid so it should have been a clue. Hindsight is 20/20, but I’m glad I just laughed, and left. We found him in his bed the next morning. No law was needed.

        • Lulu says:

          May I say that your dad was a smart wise guy? My dad did the same thing.

        • Constance says:

          He was wise enough to take action in time before he got scooped up into a health institution. My Mom had a stroke and couldn’t talk or eat or even swallow her own spit but she was still sharp as they come mentally. We had to post a family member guard on her 24/7 because every time we left her side they would pack her off to some BS medicare billable test which didn’t help her but felt like torture to her. They put feeding tubes in 4 times and she pulled them out 4 times as well as pulled out her IVs. Before the stroke she lived alone by choice and drove herself everywhere, unfortunately she was sent to the ER after the stroke and never escaped the “health” institution to die in peace at home. She did fake a heart attack to get sent back to the ER where she managed to convince a compassionate young DR to immediately order hospice instead of giving her the run around that they were waiting for approval and she died 4 days later. Once the institutions get their hooks in a medicare payment generating bed filler they don’t let go easily.

  7. Pips says:

    I’m looking forward to getting, at least a somewhat – see, I’m not even all that demanding, sigh – unbiased, critical media back.

    If Obama wins a second term, I’m afraid I, for the sake of my sanity, will have to shun media alltogether for the next four years. 😦

    • ME says:

      Oh the media will be 100% back. Politicians will become dishonest and scandal will plague Washington again. There will be daily reports on high gas prices, poverty, dead soldiers, poor veterans, ethics violations will be assigned to congress. They have been absent for four years not telling America what we need to know.

    • Constance says:

      But the media will still be incompetent and slanted. Unfortunately a new administration can’t help that situation. Nothing can.

    • indigogrrl1 says:

      All I know is if the media cheer leads someone …watch out.
      We’re fooked.

  8. AniEm says:

    A return to decency and self-respect for the country. The dems for the past few years have embarked on a strategy of degradation and vilification of the American public (bitter clingers, bitter knitters, knuckleheads, teabaggers are some of the taunting terms favored by these bullies). I even believe Biden’s recent obscene comment to Ty Woods father was by design, not stupidity. I truly can’t understand what happened to this political party or how this cabal was allowed to develop.

    And ditto ditto ditto to Lulu’s post.

    • Constance says:

      They came up with the political strategy of courting the stupid voters. It was a good plan as there are so many of them. The Republicans should have fought back by distracting the stupid voters with free food and booze on election day so they would forget to vote.

  9. tommy says:

    I’ll just be glad that America would have finally would have woken up from the hypnotic daze, so long being bedazzled by the great seductor. You know who O reminds me of? Do you remember that old Disney animated movie, Jungle Book? In it, the python snake hypnotizes the boy while singing : “Trust in me, just in me, shut your eyes, and trust in me. You can sleep, safe and sound, knowing I, am around”. Wake up call is coming up in 7 days.

  10. tommy says:

    To the polls. NPR has R up by 1 while Rasmussen has R up by 2. Rassie further states that they were badly hit by Sandy, and their offices in New Jersey are now operating on battery power with limited access to the internet.

  11. driguana says:

    Personally, I’m looking forward to all of the progressive media eating large crow. Maybe Maddow will self-immolate!

  12. yttik says:

    LOL, I’m looking forward to the time we start making fun of stupid white people again! We’ve just had four long years of youtube videos, as if we’ve searched the entire country trying to find the dumbest black person to interview and ridicule. “I’m voting for Obama because he’s going to pay my mortgage and buy me a phone!”

  13. Simofish says:

    Obama’s concession speech

  14. HELENK says:

    has everybody here in sandy’s path reported in?? If not do so as soon as possible. worried friends here

    • Constance says:

      The pictures of the storm damage are just sad, I feel so bad for everyone. It is shocking how much damage there was.

    • AniEm says:

      Thanks for your concern. Back yard looks like a swamp here in Cape May County, home of the historic landfall, but no loss of power and streets are clear. But, as I posted to FB, God definitely decided to rearrange the coastline last night. Lots of work to do in the barrier islands. Hope everyone else was safe.

    • elliesmom says:

      Ellie and I surveyed the neighborhood this morning. We’re just a little west of Boston. There are small tree limbs down, but nothing major. There are lots of sump pumps humming. Part of our basement floor is dirt from where the old coal bin used to be so the small puddle we had was gone quickly w/o intervention. The funniest thing is that the political yard signs have all blown around. Elizabeth Warren is now in the same yard as Romney, and Scott Brown is proudly next to Obama. I’m sure the homeowners will make it a priority to get them back in their proper places.

  15. tommy says:

    Jeez, the progs are going insane. Micheal Moore, in association with Moveon.org have produced an anti-Mitt GOTV video that is filled with profanities, sexual innuendo and vile threats. They just keep sinking lower and lower.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I haven’t had the nerve to click on it yet, just reading the words Michael Moore and Move-on strikes me as vile πŸ˜‰

      • tommy says:

        In the movie, a woman, born in 1915, says,” I want the republican party to know if your voter suppression throughout this beautiful country enables Romney to oust Barack Obama, we will burn this moth******er down”. “If you let the republicans do this to you again, after we did, we’re gonna look down on you from heaven, and we’re gonna make a point of watching you have s** every time, no matter how kinky,” says a man identified as John, 85. One woman in the video says,” If the republicans steal this election, I’m gonna track down Mitt Romney and give him the worlds biggest ….. Michael Moore and moveon.org are truly insane.

        • Erica says:

          That is truly the most bizarre ad I’ve ever seen. I thought it was a parody, but sadly, it’s not.

  16. driguana says:

    Thinking about starting a non-profit, funded by Kickstarter, that will buy a large, sea-going vessel called Vile Prog that will load up the most vile of the progs and drop them off over the Mariana Trench….that should be deep enough to keep them from ever resurfacing.

  17. indigogrrl1 says:

    I’m looking forward to a return of optimism.

    I own my own business that caters to small businesses and a change in administrations (regardless of policy) will mean a change in attitudes which will mean more people will be willing to try and that will mean MY business will thrive again.

    Do you like that run on sentence????

    Also – credit needs to loosen up. People need to be able to get small business loans again.

  18. angienc says:

    I’m looking forward to the rebirth of the Dem party once the progs have been expelled, just like Bryna Franklin:

    I am a former chairperson of Democrats Abroad Israel, and was an official delegate to the 1992 National Democratic Convention. In all of my 80 years, I have never before voted for a Republican for president. But this time around, I am not only proudly voting for Mitt Romney, but feel compelled to encourage others to do the same.

    I grew up in a Reform Jewish family in Missouri, and came of age politically as a proud Democrat due to the inspiration of my native-son president, Harry Truman. I have been involved in Democratic Party politics for many years in both America and Israel, including serving as vice chairperson of the Franklin County Democratic Central Committee in Missouri.

    It is precisely because of my belief in the longtime ideals of the Democratic Party that I feel the responsibility to speak out now.

    Why? First, because we ask in each presidential cycle, β€œAre we better off now than we were four years ago?” This year, the answer is a resounding β€œNO!” But even more troubling, in so many ways, President Barack Obama has betrayed the ideals of the great Democratic Party. He is a poor successor to Truman’s legacy.

  19. ME says:

    There is a picture on twitter of Obama in the situation room regarding Sandy. We need to ask for the picture of him in the sit. room regarding Libya. We need him to admit he saw the terrorist attack while it was happening and we need him to admit what he did or did not do. Obama has been allowed by the media to detach himself from being president. With Libya he throws up his hands and says he knows nothing. This man is the president, if he didn’t know he should have.

  20. NewOrleans says:

    Terrific editorial cartoon from Glenn McCoy sure to be appreciated by readers of TCH.


  21. swanspirit says:

    Am extremely fortunate here, no loss of power , yard and decks are littered completely with small to medium size branches and leaves , and one fairly large branch . Car is ok , puddles in the yard are gone , ground is sill mushy .I am deeply grateful to be in good shape , when there is major devastation five minutes away in Ocean City , and other places on the Eastern Shore , and all up and down the coast .

  22. Lulu says:

    I’m looking forward to an administration that has common sense and is not always planning on how to look cool. Example: Power Fail: White House Directs Storm Victims To … The Internet

  23. gxm17 says:

    I’m hoping for an Obama Rapture where all the obots suddenly vanish to join their messiah in a Pacific Island paradise, never to be heard from again. It’s a happy ending for everybody! πŸ˜€

  24. gram cracker says:

    I look forward to having a President who isn’t missing the empathy gene. As a church leader Romney had personal one-on-one involvement in helping church members who were experiencing the health, financial and relationship issues that many ordinary Americans experience.

    • ME says:

      Romney is a perfect candidate:
      1.Executive experience in business and as gov. He has been a leader, knows how to delegate and turn things around
      2. Morally upright decent man, no scandals. He has been married to the same woman for longer than I have been alive.
      3. Wealthy-we don’t have to worry about lobbyist bribing him for favors

  25. insanelysane says:

    I’m looking forward to having adults in charge again. Less D Letterman and The View interviews and more Press conferences with real questions and real answers.
