Elections are won by men and women chiefly because most people vote against somebody rather than for somebody.
-Franklin P. Adams (1881 - 1960), Nods and Becks, 1944
I'm going to choose not to go into a rant on politics, including the outcome of yesterday's voting (even though, as of now, I believe Alaska is still counting). I want to stick to the rules of cocktail party etiquette in not talking about two things in my blog: politics and religion. Hey, I figure out the next new party's name, the "Cocktail Party"! Huh, it's funny but with a hint of possibility. Allow me to shutter.
