...and they got it wrong.
Today the results from the overnight U.S. presidential election started coming. Aside from it being a major distraction away from study, it was also interesting. I would label myself leaning toward the political right (not by a whole lot though) but in American politics I can't stand the Republican party, but even more so, I can't stand George Dubya Bush.
At the moment it seems that it is very close, with the state of Ohio being the deciding state of the entire election this time. There it is a close race with Bush about 120000 votes ahead, with the election 'too close to call' until the absentee and provisional votes get counted. If nearly all those votes are for Kerry he might win, but that's really unlikely.
So it looks like that for another four years of Dubya. The rest of the world's opinion of the intellectual capacity of America has probably dropped another few notches. At least we we'll have a lot to complain and make fun of. This probably is a blessing in disguise for the staunchly anti-Dubya film-maker, Michael Moore, because now he can make many more films criticising Dubya's administration.
Went to work tonight, and it was pretty crap. It was so darn busy, and added to that the registers get freezing up all the time. At one point it was happening every 2 mins: the register would just die and come back 30-or-so seconds later.

I stumbled upon this a few weeks (or was it months...) ago that I found amusing:
