BEFORE I RETIRE TO THE "BUNKER' FOR ELECTION NIGHT FUN.....

..........Permit me to share a few thoughts:

First, Jon McCoy is a good man. No matter what the outcome of the election, he will be as valued a friend on Wednesday a.m. as he was before this process. I was proud to support Sheriff Fischer but equally proud that Jon is my good friend.

Second, Jil Tracy is a very good person and actually a fine attorney as well. She was actually served poorly by not having an opponent. It would have been better for her to sharpen her sword and show her abilities in the context of a hotly contested race.

Third, For my journalist friends, you were used with this "300 signs" story. The "Reward" was fair game. Not back-checking the facts as represented to you by partisans, was not.

Fourth, Perhaps the national media could figure out that in the last few days before the election "It all hinges on turnout" is not exactly Dhali Lama "meaning of life" stuff. The rest of the country has known this since their first student council election. It is not a scoop.

Fifth, I think the Quincy Political Blogosphere has hit its stride. Different folks make different kinds of contribution. We're all learning on the fly. Pundit, Oracle, Fire, OQ, Joe, Drew, Good on ya', mates.

Sixth, shool board elections are coming up. In Dist. 172, it could be our most important electoral cycle is in front of us.

Last, God Bless all the great folks who serve as election judges. There's a national shortage of election judges and Adams County is blessed with a decent number of honest and skilled folks. This is a credit to both political parties and our County Clerks, past and present.

Good Night.....Into the Bunker I go to Hunker....Carpal Tunnel, here I come!

For those that like politics, we thank you for your service. We await your detailed summary regarding undervotes, write in votes, and other observations.


For those of us democrats, the wind blows strong in our sails.

Now, whether local or national, let's work together to make things better.

Appreciate all you do. Still wondering if there is any effect of blog activity on the actual vote in political campaigns, especially on the local level.
