Six More Days


I need a break.

Seriously.

I am really stressed out. I feel like shit. I have a two-week old tension headache that won’t go away. My Giants had one of their best years ever and I couldn’t fully enjoy it because of this damn election. I wish I could just take a pill and go to sleep until next Tuesday. I don’t want to see another poll or campaign ad.

I want it to be over!

So don’t be surprised if posting is erratic for a few days, cuz I’m gonna be erratic.


UPDATE:

This captures exactly how I feel:

    k k, take a break, and relax. We get it.

  2. Tension headache? Got any rosemary hanging around? Heat some water to almost boiling. put it in a bowl. Rub some rosemary between you palms and dump it in the steaming water. Lean over the bowl and inhale the steam.
    Works great for migraines too!
    I am with you though- I am so sick of this election. Sick of the obots. Sick of this administration.
    And it pisses me off that it needn’t have been like this. Fu&*ing Brazile, Axelrove, Jarret and the gd media brought this on us. The people spoke and the high muckety mucks decided they knew better.
    May they all rot in hell.

    • HONK!

      We are ALL sick of this crowd, the Administration, the Media, the DEPRESSING CRAP they put out there every day – America is horrible, no! don’t look there! Drone Killings by the Peace Prize King mean nothing! Bust? What Bust? Campaign donations from Osama? Nah – never happened. We’re in a recovery! You all REALLY have jobs – you’re just LYING! Obama is the hope of the earth and you are a RAYYYYYcist!

      Who wouldn’t have a headache?

      America has a headache.

    • catarina says:

      What you said. And i’m going to pick the rosemary right now.

      I’ve felt like hell for days and the political stuff is probably the cause.
      Turned off the tube last night, and what a relief to not hear political screaming for a while.

      Make it stop!

      Hang in there, myiq, and try the rosemary cure.
      Six more f*cking days.

    Headaches are teh suck. Could it be sinus pressure, or high blood pressure?

    Ignore the idiotic J-Pop intro, you’d have to search far and wide before you found a better allegory for the Democratic Party experience than this:

    We Could Be Heroes!

  5. leslie says:

    Try PMM’s rosemary remedy. I worked for me last year when she told me about it. Also, gently massage the point where your upper and lower jaws meet.
    Once again, ~~~~~~>> Thanks, PMM.

    • Pips says:

      Good point about massaging the ‘Jaw joint’, as many headaches seem to stem from clenched jaws – and who hasn’t just about now, snort – and often you don’t even realize it yourself.

      Another good advise: Whenever you realize that you clench your jaw or grind your teeth: ‘Drop’ your jaw and let your mouth hang open. Alternatively make fierce ‘chewing movements’ still with you mouth open … advisably while in solitude, lol.

    • DeniseVB says:

      There’s a lot of speculation about those two generals who were relieved may have had to do with disobeying the order to stand down, or criticizing Dear Leader’s decision.

      I think it was a political decision, didn’t want a high casualty count this close to the election.

    • honora says:

      Drudge is leading with this story. That may get if talked about!

  7. tommy says:

    Damn polls are all over the place. According to Quinnipiac, O is up in Ohio by 5, in Florida by 1 and in Virginia by 2. Ofcourse, its the Quinnipiac/NYT/CBS poll. And the other news is that other than Pennsylvania, Michigan and Minnesota, the Romney camp is seriously looking at New Mexico. Whats up with that? The latest NM poll was a week ago, and O was up by 9. It doesn’t make a lot of sense to me. Any commentors here from NM? If yes, whats the general sense you get regarding the Presidential GE?

    • driguana says:

      Yes, I live in Santa Fe….just let me say that if you are not a Democrat and don’t support Obama and all things Democratic, you are not taken to very kindly in Santa Fe. I worked here in the public sector for 35 years and consciously never registered to vote only because I never wanted to have any politicial affiliation or have any political allegiance with anyone becasue the politics runs so deeply here…..I survived. But this year I voted. Gary Johnson was Governor here as you probably know and will pull in quite a few votes but that won’t really affect Obama. North tends to be very Hispanic, Catholic and very Democratic, which I also find a bit odd, and the south tends to go Republican. We also currently have a Republican governor, Susanna Martinez, and her political strength mostly came from the south. An odd state for sure but no way Romney will win here unless a very large Republican turnout in the southern part of the state. Native Americans here tend Democratic. The bigger headache is what will we all do if Obama wins for more years….talk about a big headache, myiq! I don’t think I could tolerate living here any longer…it already tends toward being politically repulsive.

      • tommy says:

        Thanks for the info, driguana. Sounds like those typical prog internetz hellholes, where at the slightest sign of dissent, you are publicly ostracized. Hopefully, in a week, we’ll all breathe a sigh of relief.

      • LandOLincoln says:

        I’m in New Mexico too (Burque) and lost most of my so-called friends four years ago when I tried to tell them who and what Obama really was. I remember one arrogant SOB dismissing everything I’d said about that narcissistic fraud with a snotty “Nothing you could possibly say will change my mind about Barack Obama.”

        However, the same politically well-connected friend who’d convinced me that Obama was bad news (I was crazy about him initially) is now supporting him, and reeled off a long list of reasons why.

        So I thought about it overnight, and called her back the next day with my conclusion: that Bill Clinton has told that empty suit that it will get his support when and only when it supports and promotes Clinton policies, so that’s what it’s doing.

        She thought I was right about that, and then went on to list all the reasons she couldn’t possibly support Romney–none of which I remember now, but since she lives in the D.C. area and has a close relative in the gummint I’m inclined to accept her assessment of the man. Which is, he may be decent and honorable but he’s still a Republican and his policies would be even more disastrous for the country than Obama’s–and especially disastrous for us geezers whose only reliable source of income is SS.

        • indigogrrl1 says:

          horse shit.

        • gram cracker says:

          How reliable is SS going to be when it runs out of money? Will it pay out at a percentage of what people are expecting, for example 75% of expected benefit? Obamacrat’s party platform mantra is redistribution of money in this country. Will SS benefits be based on a means test, thereby remaking it into a welfare entitlement program? How do you know you can count on the Dems? Not saying that the Repubs are any better, but I wouldn’t count on the Dems.

          My daughter’s former program analyst colleagues (who are Dems and Obama supporters by the way) in the budget office of the Office of the Secretary of HHS tell her that they hate to say it, but the Bush administration was better to work for than the Obama administration.

          These people are responsible for preparing the budgets for the programs administered by HHS including SS. They say that Democrats know how to legislate, but don’t know how to administer. Pretty damning commentary on the Obama administration by people on the inside who are Democrats.

        • myiq2xu says:

          My sister’s neighbor’s cousin’s hairdresser used to live in Boston and he says Romney will make a great president.

          So I’m going with that.

        • gxm17 says:

          If I thought Obama could/would “save” Social Security, I might just vote for him. Fortunately, or unfortunately, I’m well aware that he’ll most likely do the opposite of what he says. At least Romney doesn’t lie to my face. Which is why I’ve always found the Obamanation “Romney is a liar” meme so incredibly bizarre. Don’t they realize that we didn’t drink the Koolaid and we know perfectly well who the lying sack of shit is? Hint: It’s not Romney.

    • Dem +8 in that poll. Put aside as wishcasting. Add 6 to Rommney.

  8. Lulu says:

    Every time I see the One’s face I feel queasy. I am starting a sewing project this morning so I will be too distracted to pay much attention to anything around me. I forget to eat, get the mail, and generally what time it is. Hopefully by 4 o’clock this afternoon I will say “What election?” If my timing is correct I will be like this through Sunday.

    • cj says:

      It’s true. I have such a strong physical revulsion for BO’s face or voice that I rush to mute or change the channel so fast that I startle the dog.

      • Mary says:

        Me too. Although I don’t have a dog. πŸ™‚

      • fif says:

        Ditto. I have barely heard him since 2008. Why would I voluntarily listen to a chronic liar? This storm is making me nervous though, because people are so impressionable and O and the media are doing everything they can to make him look compassionate and commanding right now. I simply cannot bear the thought of him staying on.

  9. votermom says:

  10. DeniseVB says:

    Obama’s going to be “not campaigning” in Jersey today with Christie to “not staging a photo op” while looking at the damages. Forward!

    Looks like Bloomberg and Cuomo waved BO off because they’re too busy to arrange security for a Royal visit.

    • cj says:

      Christie is pissing me off. Less than a week before the election & he rolls out the red carpet & provides BO with a royal photo-op? Smacks of look at me, me, me…just like his convention speech.

      • votermom says:

        I figure Christie knows he can get anything he wants out of Obama right now for his state so he is sucking up. Plus maybe Christie is keeping Obama in NJ to keep him out of the swing states.

      • fif says:

        I have the exact same impression. He can accept the help, but he’s actually praising and promoting Obama and going out of his way to crow about it?! Maybe he’s worried Romney really will win and that will affect his plans for a 2016 run.

        • votermom says:

          The tweet link above points out that Obama denied Rick Perry emergency funds for Texas in April last year. I think Christie is probably doing what he thinks is best for himself and his state, figuring that Mitt will win anyway.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Denied VA some much needed funds for toronado damage too. Obama likes to play God with our tax dollars, just monopoly money to him. It’s all political, Christie’s sucking it up to help his state after seeing how other GOP govs have been treated.

    • votermom says:

    • gram cracker says:

      “If I’m wrong, I’m counting on you to mock me for it mercilessly next Wednesday. But I’m not wrong.”

      Can you picture Tweety, Madcow and the like counting on being mocked? The left is angry and has lost their sense of humor. Their desperate, angry, race-baiting rhetoric smells like losers.

      • cj says:

        It’s going to be ugly, ugly, ugly over there. If/when BO loses I wouldn’t put anything passed them (Schultz, O’Donnell, Sharpton, Matthews) including incitement to riot. Not in so many words, but that’s what it will amount to, IMO.

    • catarina says:

      *lets out Dean Scream* πŸ™‚

  11. honora says:

    I am going to vote early this morning. We have the usual president, house, senate and judges races and then another 20 ballot issues. That is unusual for Maryland. I can’t imagine how long the lines are going to be on Tuesday. I am hoping that they are short today. Once I have voted, I can sit back and enjoy the show!!

    • kanaughty says:

      good luck in maryland!

      i voted there in the last election. i wore orange to my polling place in frederick county.

      i voted for mccain palin in protest, bartlett, and then women wherever i could.

      this time i am voting in arkansas and will vote yes for medical marijuana πŸ™‚

      then in 4 years i will either be in new orleans or the next job wherever that is after that. we will be in nola for 3 years most likely, but no prospects on where after that.

      all i know is that I always vote even if i am not a native of that area because it is my duty as an american (even if it is in protest, i have to vote against the worse, i won’t stay home). i can’t wait for the day when i can vote for a candidate that i agree with on social and economic issues.

    too many possible snark options… system overloading …

    After sitting thru Sandy , and what with everything else repugnant in this election , I really am on my last nerve

  15. Constance says:

    I don’t want to mention any names but some of you need more exercise and less booze. I am saying this as a friend. Go for a walk outside regardless of the weather. If it’s nice out you will see how beautiful nature is. If it is pouring down rain and windy you will see how warm and welcoming you home is when you get back. and the exercise will do positive things for your health. You will at least sleep better. While you are out stop off at a coffee shop and actually talk to another person who is just sitting there alone, preferably not about politics.

    • votermom says:

      Hey! I resemble that remark! πŸ˜†
      Seriously, exercise is great – I always guilt myself about not doing it enough.

    • kanaughty says:

      hi constance, i have to say though, that since i only drink once every two months and work out 3 times a week, i actually need more alcohol and less exercise πŸ™‚ but you know i am just saying this to be snarky, your advice is good… i just wanted to lighten the mood… πŸ˜‰

  16. votermom says:

    Mitt describes himself well here -“the ability to see where things are headed before people in general see those things”

  17. votermom says:

    Axelord said on Morning Joe that he will bet his mustache that Obama wins PA, MN, & MI

  18. gram cracker says:

    I had an eight day time out from the internet and mobile phone a week ago while in rural VA. Except for having to endure a small daily dose of MSNBC it was like stepping back in time. I resisted being baited into discussing politics with my yellow dog Democrat hosts.

    We cut and stacked firewood, sat on the porch, watched the leaves turn color, fish jump in the pond, listened to cows mooing and horses neighing. We went to bed by 9:30 and got up with the sun. I made a big pot of soup and iron skillet cornbread. We got apples from a local orchard and fixed fried apples and pork chops. It was a much needed break from the pressure cooker DC environment.

    Then we drove through the mountains of Virginia and West Virginia where the trees were brilliant with fall colors. Just one week later the roads we traveled are virtually impassable courtesy of an October blizzard brought on by hurricane Sandy. Fall is prime rafting time on the Gauley and New rivers so lots of people vacation there this time of year. Even Gatlinburg has 22 inches of snow. Un fucking believable!

    Now I’m back in Ohio where the phone rings several times a day with pollsters and campaign calls. I’ll be voting early and I’ve already got my ticket to see Romney, Ryan and Ann on Friday.

    Regardless of who wins next week, sometime in November I’m going to my own Walden Pond off-road, mountain hideaway place in TN, walk the woods, look at the milky way and purge my mind of all things political. Politics has sucked up way too much of my thoughts and time for the past 12 years. Got to put this down and pick up something new.

    Time to work on achieving my life long ambitions of being a ski bum in the winter and a beach bum in the summer.

    • elliesmom says:

      I hope your Walden is better than the real thing. It’s a few hundred feet from a major highway. Tourists have made such a big impact on it most of the hiking trails around it are closed because of erosion. People with dogs have been so disrespectful of the area Ellie can’t go walking there anymore. There’s a small beach area, but it’s so congested the parking lot fills up before lunch every day in the summer. It wasn’t “wilderness” when Thoreau was there. Downtown Concord is within walking distance, but today it’s lost its pristine loveliness.

      • gram cracker says:

        My Walden is 16 acres next to a national park in the Big South Fork of the Cumberland River in north central Tennessee. You need 4 wheel drive to get in and out of my place. This is wilderness area. The national park is primarily designed for campers, hikers, horseback riders and mountain bikers.

        The park and adjoining land are a lush pine and deciduous forest with a few old Hemlocks tucked into ravines too difficult to log. There are creeks, waterfalls, the most natural bridges east of the Mississippi, gorges, sandstone palisades, deer, bear, elk, mountain laurel and rhododendron. You can’t see a power line or hear road traffic. At night you can see the milky way and stars all the way down to the horizon. I love to walk the woods and smell the pines.

        Devil's Jump Overlook

        This is where my late husband spent his childhood. We walked the river, creeks and woods many times and he shared with me stories and secrets of his youth. Returning there is one of the few places where I still feel his presence. I don’t own this land, it owns me. I am a mere temporary custodian.

        I’m not a particularly religious person but when I am there and in places like Yellowstone and Yosemite it changes my perspective and I feel more spiritual and at peace with myself. The manmade skyscraper canyons of Manhattan and Chicago seem insignificant with what mother nature and time has wrought.

        • elliesmom says:

          Elliesdad is retiring next month, and we’re headed on a road trip south next summer. We need to wait until school’s out so my daughter and her family can move into our house to tend to Ellie. I’d take her along, but because of bad owners, too many places don’t welcome our canine friends. Tennessee is on our agenda. Big South Fork looks so beautiful.

    • kanaughty says:

      hi gram, so i drove to southwestern virginia once with my hubby because we almost had to work there in virginia city/st. paul about 30 minutes before norton, virginia. i was so damned car sick!!! i never felt so nasty in my life. i was so sick that we were only 30 minutes or less from kentucky, and i love visiting as many states as possible, but i couldn’t go, i missed out 😦 but it was so beautiful out there! there was so much land, but i couldn’t handle being carsick everyday for 3 years.

    Myiq, take loads of rest, and charge up. Come D-night, and you and the other mods will be busy, busy, busy. Fending off a shipload of both obot and repub trolls, with our regulars posting comments every couple of minutes, threads popping open all over the place, and hopefully, a gazillion hits for TCH. Todays Rasmussen national poll has R up by 2. They also have R up by 3 in CO, and tied with O in WI. Roanoke College has R up by 5 in VA, Franklin&Marshall have O up by 4 in PA and KSTP/SurveyUSA have O up by 7 in Minnesota. Sean Trende, senior election analyst at RCP can’t figure out the divergence of state and national polls. Hes got a good write-up at RCP. He says that they have to merge in the next few days. According to him, its 2 men enter, 1 leaves. Both of them can’t be right. Lol

  20. t says:

    Seriously. If it’s doing that to you, just get away from it. The reality is it doesn’t matter which of these idiots win. The outcome for us will be the same. You are the one who kept talking about 2% less evil. I think it’s more like 0.02% less evil. I hold a grudge against Obama. In fact I hate his freaking guts and am voting 3rd party in WA state where the dunce will win. But I know that hating him is not worth my health. It’s just not. And to make it that bad is just you distorting the truth in a pathological way. The election doesn’t matter as much as you think it does right now. So just stop it. Stop. Forget about this election. Take a break from blogging or whatever it takes. It isn’t worth ruining your health.

    • votermom says:

      Heh. New meme. Just don’t vote – it’s killing you. πŸ™„

      • cj says:

        I voted already & it doesn’t help. I think it depends on what the thought of four more yrs of Obama does to you…for me it’s almost unbearable.

        We’ll survive. 6 more days & hopefully a big sigh of relief; then pop the bubbly !

    This moment is the best moment to change how you see life. Look at the good things around you and you will see that 99% of your life is good.

    Myiq, if you have optimism that Romney will win and are happy about it, you will be happy until election day πŸ™‚ — Deal with the election returns on election day.
    I’ve had a long life. I figured that the best way to deal with uncertainty is to have the certainty that everything will be fine no matter what. I’ve found it is true too. Every knot in life I used to worry about because I couldn’t control, unravelled itself without me doing a damn thing.

  23. piper says:

    myiq – take everyone’s advice and get out of the house even if you sit on your front steps or patio – amazing how much better you’ll feel. Also sometimes if you’re sleep deprived which I know a lot about you become an emotional wreck – momma’s suggestions which I dislike to admit have worked for me are either a glass of milk with no additives or a cup of tea with valerian.
    Now go and celebrate the Giants win!!!!!

    Re Headaches from this election season – trying living in a supposedly blue state – TV ads beginning with I’m BO and approve this message (his ego overtakes him and his message), print ads, flyers, internet ads on my e-mail page (ugh), tv guide, game sites, browser page – the mute button on my remote is worn down.
    The only house with 2 obama signs moved them from edge of property to closer to house – wonder why – could be that we have a lot of dogs here that are walked several times a day.

    • piper says:

      Forgot about all the phone calls from pollsters to robo calls from RNC telling me to go vote which I have already done.

    I just got back and will be running out again in 3 minutes. I was driving back from a funeral a little bit ago and I thought I’d listen to “Chicago Progressive Talk Radio” and I lasted less than 5 minutes. I figured that since I voted, it wouldn’t affect me. I was WRONG !!!
    I’m with little Abby in the vidoe. I’m gonna get sick if this doesn’t stop.
