Following Up

by Dardezael

    So we've won.  I feel like I've personally screamed my head off at my computer, the TV, and the radio in an effort to really GOTV.  Yeah, I realize that no one other than my dog heard me, but that's not the point.  The point is that we won and that I can lie to myself by pretending that my yelling helped us win in some small way.
