Our precinct votes at an elementary school. I figured the kids would have the day off, but no, there they were. Wandering around, seemingly at random. I was beginning to wonder if there were any classes going on. Finally at 8:05 (I had over an hour to wonder about this) the announcements began. Why do the kids get there so early? I got to say the Pledge of Allegiance for the first time in a while, just a few minutes before I voted. Very appropriate, I think. No moonbats with videocameras in evidence. Everybody was pretty well behaved except the guy behind me who kept crowding me. Really, Mr. Space Invader, it didn't get you through the line any quicker.
