Wave Election

So, the results of yesterday’s election are (mostly) in, and the pundits are punditing like they’ve never pundited before.  An unprecedented volume of heated gas is currently being pumped into your home via coaxial cable, produced by our Nation’s Stockpile of Desk-Attached Torsos in Serious Suits,  all pointing to futuristic- and occasionally holographic- red and blue visual aids and droning on and on about tea parties, and repudiation, and a pendular swing in the nation’s mood.

But I believe this is an inaccurate reading of yesterday’s results.  I think all the evidence points to a national mood that has shifted away from partisan politics, and strongly in favor of the Mercantile Library, since a bipartisan group of no less (and possibly more) than FOUR of yesterday’s winners (Rob Portman, Mike DeWine, and Eric Kearney locally, and John Hickenlooper in Colorado) have given talks at the Mercantile!

The Nation has spoken.  Let’s hope those Washington fat cats are listening.

  1. punditing=bloviating (my new favorite word)

  2. That’s a great word, and very hand this time of year.

  3. To which add: Blovosphere – the virtual world in which pundits gas each other up, and Blovocracy – government controlled by cable personalities
