Everything I have witness the past 48 hours as well as the entire election process has been surreal. I'm kind of numb right now trying to soak up all the latest news that has been coming in today. So, who is looking forward to tomorrow's debate? If and it's a BIG If, if Drumpf actually shows up, this is going to be UGLY and a total train wreck. He knows he is toast. He knows he can't win. And he knows this will be his last hurrah on the big stage (I don't expect him to show up to debate #3). So, I expect him to go nuclear (pun intended) and do everything possible to destroy Clinton (both of them), even if it means destroying whatever he holds dear in that tiny pea brain of his, be it his "good name" or whatever.

I just pictured Clinton leaning on her podium, bored, making small talk with the moderator ("i've been good. busy. you?"), checking her watch and wondering "so... is someone from the other side showing up? They know when this was supposed to start, right?"

We are a mere 45 minutes away from the debate and Drumpf has already fired the first shot by announcing that 3 of Bill Clinton's accusers (Paula Jones, Juanita Broaddrick, and Kathleen Willey) will be in the Town Hall. This is going to be messy...dirty....and fun to watch.

30 minutes into and the bullets are flying. Total f*cking train wreck. 2 disgusting people.

It seems the audience is pro Trump... why, I have no idea.

Trump just disagreed with his running mate about Syria. Whaaaaaaaaaaaa???

And now he's rambling again. While Hillary has her sh*t eating grin obviously thinking, Trump continues to spiral down.

Trump is and will never be prepared for presidency.  :-\

I'm losing any interest I have.

Yeah, I was stunned that he more or less tossed Pence under the bus on a national stage. Tit for tat. I knew it was coming....just not at the debate. Now onto the rest of the debate. Drumpf was horrible in the first 30 minutes. He literally was a deer in headlights as he reverted into stump speech mode when trying to pivot from the 'Hot Mic' video onto other subject matters. I give Clinton this round, not because she was good, but because Drumpf was bad. But, to my surprise, he settled down and started to land some heavy blows. He was unrelentless and there were some great lines. Cheap shots....but still great lines. Round 2 and 3 go to Drumpf. Yes, there were a few hiccups along the way, the biggest being him rambling on and on about his "Post Office". I was literally screaming at the TV to get back on point and stop promoting your venture. But yeah, I have Drumpf easily beating Clinton tonight. She offered nothing new and was robotic and reciting too many rehearsed lines to win anyone over.

Voted.  And got interviewed by the news, but they didn't use any of it.  No worries (I can imagine my sister getting a lot of texts, "I saw your brother on the news!" "Oh god, what did he do?").

Anyway, that's it.  I did my duty, cast my vote... and I highly suggest you do the same.  Earlier is better, if you can.  Parking and the line was a nightmare, so bring a book, headphones, something.

Voted?

For the President?

I'm hearing about early voting, but I know of nothing around these parts where that can be done.

So early voting was a nightmare? Dayummmmmmm

Good job. Good luck in your candidate winning....in spite of his small hands.  ;D

As for me, I'm doing mail-in vote and will wait for the 11th hour before I pull the trigger on whoever is able to con me into voting for them.

Okay, so I checked the news web site and saw the report.  I wasn't in it, big deal.  Anyway, a couple hours later I hear from my mom, "You were on the news THREE times!  You were the lead-in!"  Whoa!

Edit: got a pic!

Tonight's 3rd and final debate was interesting. I'm watching the aftermath with commentators and they seem to be very much placing Hillary as the winner.

I honestly saw it very different. Trump kept his composure. He had answers and defended himself reasonably well.
Hillary had some very scripted answers and very repetitive, IMO. Not that I believe either one will be able to accomplish 1/10 of what they say.

Again, can't stand either, but I think we'll be in a world continuing to spiral down with Hillary. I have no idea what Trump will bring, but I'm thinking, can it get worse?

CNN and MSNBC will always say that Clinton won the debate and FOX will always side with Drumpf. Personally I thought both sucked. Clinton more so. So, yeah, in that regard Drumpf "won". But he was erratic too many times. But that wasn't the worst of it. It was watching Clinton constantly looking down at her podium. She was literally READING off her cards word for word. It was pathetic.  Why no one has called her out on that is just evidence that the media is in her tank and want her to win.
