Waiting for a Landslide and a New President in 24 Hours

| Comments (0)

Back in 2010, I remember Dennis Miller on his radio show sharing a fantasy of his on the eve of election day.  You know, that day when the democrats lost hundreds of seats on both a local and national level to the anger and enthusiasm of the Tea Party.  Dennis said his greatest dream was to awaken on election morning, and find that people were streaming out into the streets in great crowds heading out to vote, their density clearly visible from aircraft above, from traffic helicopters to 747s.  Today, on the eve of election day 2012, I share that same dream for tomorrow.

This weekend my daughter began to ask about making plans with a friend on Tuesday.  Nope, I said.  No plans on Tuesday.  I have been waiting four years for Tuesday.  Many of us, the majority of us I would like to think, have been waiting four years for Tuesday.  As I write this, the loyal members of Obama’s mainstream media propoganda team are making their last-gasp efforts to convince the people who love our nation and our founding principles to stay home.  The race is won, they tell us, and to their messiah go the spoils.  Don’t even bother voting, then, they tell us, thrusting in our faces their ridiculously skewed polls that show even more democrats voting with even more enthusiasm than they had four years ago and ignoring 2010 entirely.  Yet as they crow, we see a clench to their jaws and a shared, rather shifty expression in their eyes, conveying the message that all is not as peachy as they would have us believe.  Meanwhile, the president ignores the suffering in the Northeast and the increasing revelations of what really happened in Benghazi as he urges his followers to vote for “revenge,” while Governor Romney urges us to vote “for love of country.”

And meanwhile several pundits have dared when discussing a Romney/Ryan victory to use the “L-word” — landslide — a word I have been using myself for months now.  As we now approach tomorrow’s tipping point, our Waterloo, here is hoping that tomorrow night, despite the fraud, the lies, the litigation and perhaps even the violence that might occur in the next 24 hours, we will hear a deafening chorus of that word, coupled with a shattering, “I told you so!”  In the meantime, I will be wishing upon the stars on our flag for Dennis Miller’s dream to come true, to see at dawn and throughout the day tomorrow, Americans from coast to coast streaming out their doors, crowding freeways and highways and polling places to take our country back.  We have no choice.
