I voted at 6 a.m. I see that Anderson is scheduled to be on Conan tonight, I look forward to that.

I voted and am so glad it will soon be over - the phone calls, the election mail literature it's been just to much. But if it means change I'm all for it.

One word to the Federal Govt and newspeople(you know who you are, Anderson) remember there is a state above Ohio and Illinois and its name is MI, we have problems and things here that should be addressed by Congress and the media. Can you say Northern Border.

Personally, I'd like to thank everyone who particpates in elections regardless of who they support.

I just overheard a co-worker declare that he "would like to vote but didn't want to stand in line for an hour." I guess it never occured to him that the polls are open all day and he could go later.

And like you Gracie, I will be glad when the day is over! We can go back to covering something other than the "he said, no...HE said" stories of late.

Gracie said...

@Jade maybe Mr Cooper and the rest of the media will go back to NOLA, especially St Bernard Parish(they feel so forgotten)and let us know what is going on. There are so many issues that could be covered, but aren't so that is why I surf the net so much - to find out first hand what is going on since no one(media) really seems to care.

Thanks for the reminder Jade. :)

I voted and got my flu shot last week Tuesday. Voting was painless, I wish I could say the same for the vaccination. :(

Hello Van and Gracie, thank you for stopping by and dropping us a note. :)

I agree...it seems that once again New Orleans has been forgotten. If we had a major hurricane this season, I believe it would still be on people's minds. It's a shame that it takes something so horrible to remind people here at home that we have problems in our own backyards.

Maybe Anderson has been back to NOLA in the last few weeks, nobody here would know for sure unless it had been publicized.

Jade said...

That is a truism Anon. It would still be nice for CNN to continue to "Keep Them Honest".

ivy said...

@jade -- though "keeping them honset" stays very important regardless of political season it would be nice if they dedicated more time to NOLA before the elections.

ivy said...

cnn's Breaking News: Britney Spears files for divorcing from K-Fed. WTF??! Is that the most important news on election day? Unbelievable.

Gracie said...

@all I know I mentioned NOLA, but we mustn't forget the rest of the Gulf Region that was devastated by Katrina. And yes AC might very well have gone back to New Orleans, without publicity. However, it would be nice to know how things are going down there. From what I saw the City of New Orleans itself is getting back, slowly. However, drive through St Bernards Parish and you see homes that will never be rebuilt. In August the the population in St Bernards was under 20,000 and pre Katrina it was 62,000. We can't forget.

OK I'm gettting off my soap box Anderson knows how I feel about this as do all my friends and relatives.

Jade said...

@Ivy...I'm sure that's important news to someone...lol. I'm not sure who that someone would be, but someone cares. Or not ;)

What a shame it's a slow news day.

courtney01 said...

LOL about Brit and K-Fed. I'm with Ivy, WTF?

Though maybe Anderson will make a smart ass comment about it. That's something to look forward to, right? ;-)

I voted on the way to work this morning. Had to wait about 30 minutes. Long wait, but keep in mind back in '04, I had to wait about 90 minutes to vote. So I'm glad to see that people are taking this election seriously and coming out in big numbers to do their citizenly (is that a word?) duty.

I have class tonight, so I won't be home to watch the updates on CNN. Will have to wait till I get home to find out about results!

Am excited but also nervous.

*Launching the palm of my hand to my forehead*...

Cooper is wearing the same tie from last night. Oh geez.

Gracie said...

@Jade he's just being patriotic white shirt and blue/red tie AND it's still crooked. lol

Jade said...

Okay... I don't feel so bad for noticing the tie. This was on another political blog earlier this evening:

Tie watch

Watching CNN right now. The panel in front of Anderson Cooper is split based on color-coded lines. Democratic analysts James Carville and Paul Begala on the left with blue ties. On the right, J.C. Watts and Bill Bennett with red ties. Of course, Wolf Blitzer is wearing a right tie while populist anchor Lou Dobbs, surfing public opinion, has gone with a purple tie that could be confused with blue.

jade --I couldn't help noticing it too -lol I think AC's "young republican tie" is meant to show his objectivity -)

Holding my breath... holding my breath here...

I like cnn's studio set-up today, very dynamic, more so then other cable channels.

MANIFESTO

Don't think for me. Don't assume what I want to hear or read. Give me facts. Give me reasons. But not yours. Bring me debate. Enlighten me. Today, accountability is masked behind anonymity; bylines are hidden by zeros and ones. Everyone publishes; everyone is "in the know." Ethics are non-existent. Speculation is king. The truth is masked and a hostage. Empowered by our minds, WE ARE THE FREAKSPEAKERS!
