    I'm a total politics/polling junkie, so I'll be compulsively refreshing Nate Silver's blog and, if things go the way I'm hoping, hopefully celebrating with Chocolate Rain or Perfect Storm.

    Celebration Ale would be perfect, to celebrate the end of all the political ads on TV.

    I know that in SC and Kentucky you cant buy alcohol on election day. I thinks it true in some counties in GA too. Hopefully you have some on hand...

    I am going to have a Local Acre while thinking about how to payoff the $200,000 in debt my family owes thanks to the last 12 years of mismanagement. Times are tight and it's the only thing in my fridge right now. Gotta start home brewing soon.

    I know it's an unpopular sentiment, but I still believe the president leads the whole country. :p

    Me and my friends both agree, If Obama wins we're cracking bottles in celebration. If Romney wins we'll drink our misery away...

    It just dawned on my I have some Fireside Chat in my fridge so I may hit that. I figure I'll just drink something potent, either out of dread things didn't go how I wanted them or celebration that they did.
