As I put on my Facebook status (borrowing and adapting from John McCain):
Stand up! Stand up and vote! Nothing is inevitable here. We never give up. We never quit. We never hide from history. Vote!” (Oh, and Run Johnny Run!)about an hour ago clearI'll mention some of my votes below, but first, as a reminder, here's the actual bit of the speech from Sen. McCain:
Don't give up hope. Be strong. Have courage. And fight.
Fight for a new direction for our country. Fight for what's right for America. Fight to clean up the mess of corruption, infighting and selfishness in Washington.
Fight to get our economy out of the ditch and back in the lead.
Fight for the ideals and character of a free people.
Fight for our children's future.
Fight for justice and opportunity for all.
Stand up to defend our country from its enemies.
Stand up, stand up, stand up and fight. America is worth fighting for. Nothing is inevitable here. We never give up. We never quit. We never hide from history. We make history.Now, let's go win this election and get this country moving again.
And before you go to quick, no, I did not vote straight ticket.
