    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).

    Pabst Blue Ribbon 16 oz tallboys. It's a tradition I've held every election night since Lincoln/Douglas.

    I'm so impressed that BA hasn't devolved into a half-witted political debate.

    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.

    Did you know voter fraud is the most overstated crime people complain about? Why do people still spout this bullshit? I just can't comprehend.

    Well you must be a democrat... Or in fla.
    didn't you get the follow up call informing you that some right wing fascist (not that these things are not mutually exclusive) was trying to fuck you? Been happening all week- your wife/gf whatever didn't give their absentee ballot to the "pole workers" who came to the house to pick it up did they? Shit like that is the foulest of foul.

    Because racism, xenophobia, and gut feelings are more important than "facts".

    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.

    Couldn't stop thinking of this after your comment :)

    Personally I think after WWII we let this whole "savior of the world/ we are number one" bs go to out heads. The fat cats have been lapping up all the milk while rubbing against our legs for a long time... And sadly most of America is content to just pet the kitty... Instead of buying a dog to chase those smug fuckers up a tree where they belong
