    I have some Seroquel and Klonopin if you need them. Sounds like you might after those two posts in a row. ;)

    Well, just voted and since it is Portland Beer Week- I am off to drink the fuck out of some Oxbow at Taco Escobar. Probably a Lag or two as well since somehow during PBW Lagunitas is being showcased (not complaining at all). Then it'll be back home to fold the ridiculous amount of laundry I just did, drink a Brooklyn BCS and A Backwoods Bastard and wait for the votes to roll in. Either way I have to work tomorrow.

    Brew Free or Die IPA. It seemed appropriate to have some founding fathers by my side.

    If this election goes the way I fear it's going, I will be hoarding my cellar in hopes that rare beers can be used as currency when the dollar collapses.

    Sitting in my recliner flipping back and forth between MSNBC and Fox News, refreshing Drudge Report every five minutes, and drinking a Southern Tier Mokah out of my oversized tulip. Got an FBS in the fridge for later (08-06-12 bottle date).

    I'm just pleased that the Bros let this thread run its course. But yes, for the most part it has stayed on topic.
    Let's see what happens if/when a winner is projected...

    Did you know it's illegal to ask for photo ID when voting in CA? How many illegals do you think are voting here? I just can't comprehend.

    I've never heard of this, and I live in GA..

    I bought beer today too, and had a few beers at lunch before I voted early last week.

    Had a few pints of Four Peaks Hop Knot while watching coverage. Thinking I'll be celebrating with something when I get home. Maybe an FBS or Stone Mint Chocolate Imperial Stout. Either way, it's going to be dark. ;)

    Right...because requiring identification to cast a vote is racist. :rolls eyes:

    The idea of a universal right to vote is a uniquely modern and abstract concept, America (thankfully) guarantees all of its legitimate citizens a vote, and as such obtaining such proof really isn't that difficult. If anything, voter ID laws are an inconvenience and not voter suppression, and the people that believe in the American process will follow the requisite processes in order to obtain the necessary credentials to vote. No one ever said that exercising your "rights" is easy, and if they truly believe in in the American electoral system they will endure the terrible inconvenience of finding an hour or two out of the 8760 hours provided to them in a calendar year to suck it up and obtain said necessary credentials.

    Right, because voter fraud is so widespread, and so many of those darn illegals are voting. ::rolls eyes::

    That was fun!

    Agreed. You need an id to cash a check and rent a book from a library for Christ sake.
