Well, here we are. You know exactly what day it is.

Today, I don’t know what to say. 100 million of us had already voted before today; up to another 60 million are expected to possibly vote today; the polls show it will take a mathematical miracle for President Illegitimate to win, but we all know how that goes; the White House is barricaded for the first time on an Election Night in history; and President Low Energy is sounding increasingly like a man who knows he’s about to lose:

You're not going to learn anything useful about the election outcome on here until 7pm, i.e. when they start counting votes.

Look, we all have PTSD from 2016 and we have all become experts on the Electoral College map, swing states, and polling in the past four years. I just don’t know that at this point there is anything I can say here that will either make you feel better about tonight’s (or tomorrow’s or Friday’s or next week’s) results. I wish there was something inspiring or hopeful or insightful I could say, but I have nothing.
Instead, just know that the world is watching and waiting with us:

And keep hoping for the future.
The kids singing this lovely cover of “Landslide” back in 2009 are now all old enough to vote. Fingers crossed they all did so today. (h/t BoingBoing)
Let’s hope for an early and peaceful night, no matter what happens. ~hugs~
