10. The replacement of political yard signs with signs for people who want to refinance your house or buy your clunker.
9. Certain reporters, personalities, politicians might calm down. Veins popping out of foreheads and necks and yelling into microphones are not normal. Ever heard of a heart-attack? They are headed that way. And, the phrases “coming from the loins” and “a thrill going up my leg” are not normal either and should not be applied to politics. (And I don’t want to explain that to a 5 year old.) Calm down folks, it’s over!
8. Maybe we can get some fresh subject matter for SNL and the late night shows. I’m so tired of hearing about Obama and Romney all the time. Aren’t there other celebrities you can make fun of?
7. I can stop contemplating how my posts will be interpreted by both sides, so as not to alienate anyone who is seeking encouragement. (I felt this one was pretty even and just downright funny!)
6. The replacement of inappropriate political ads with inappropriate pharmaceutical and legal ads. (Come to think of it, I don’t want to explain those to a 5 year old either.)
5. Maybe gas prices, the stock market, etc. will stabilize now that companies, investors, and you and I know what policies to expect. Or maybe instead of talking about all the country’s problems, someone will fix them.
4. Actually learning about what’s going on in the world, instead of having reporters follow two men around all day long like reality TV stars.
3. Reading FB, Twitter, etc. might be fun again since half the posts have been about how stupid or ignorant the other half of the country is. I’m tired of being lumped in with people who are stupid and ignorant or those calling other people stupid and ignorant.
2. All the attention and volunteerism can turn to people who are hurting, the unemployed, the victims of Sandy, etc.
1. We can all move on!
Why are you glad it’s over?
