The super storm battered the house and flooded the town and, it turns out, ruptured the space-time continuum. Multiple universes were created and in the one I now reside some bizarre things have happened.
When the power came back on I flipped on the TV to see this on Fox:
After I got up off the floor I flipped the channel to see this on ABC:
Next, I saw this report:
What the ? Where am I? The jillionaire Bloomberg endorsed Obama? And for climate change?
When I step into the voting booth, I think about the world I want to leave my two daughters, and the values that are required to guide us there. The two parties’ nominees for president offer different visions of where they want to lead America.
One believes a woman’s right to choose should be protected for future generations; one does not. That difference, given the likelihood of Supreme Court vacancies, weighs heavily on my decision.
One recognizes marriage equality as consistent with America’s march of freedom; one does not. I want our president to be on the right side of history.
One sees climate change as an urgent problem that threatens our planet; one does not. I want our president to place scientific evidence and risk management above electoral politics.
Presidents Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan both found success while their parties were out of power in Congress -- and President Obama can, too. If he listens to people on both sides of the aisle, and builds the trust of moderates, he can fulfill the hope he inspired four years ago and lead our country toward a better future for my children and yours. And that’s why I will be voting for him.Gah! I must have died in the storm and this is some kind of bizarro heaven. What's next, an endorsement from The Economist?
No, you're kidding!:
As a result, this election offers American voters an unedifying choice. Many of The Economist’s readers, especially those who run businesses in America, may well conclude that nothing could be worse than another four years of Mr Obama. We beg to differ. For all his businesslike intentions, Mr Romney has an economic plan that works only if you don’t believe most of what he says. That is not a convincing pitch for a chief executive. And for all his shortcomings, Mr Obama has dragged America’s economy back from the brink of disaster, and has made a decent fist of foreign policy. So this newspaper would stick with the devil it knows, and re-elect him.Apparently this is the world I now inhabit. I wonder what's going on in the world I used to know?
