Post Election Crud

My voice is hoarse and my chest is achey. At first I thought it was just from yelling last night and lack-of-sleep hangoverish-ness, but now I think I may be coming down with something. Like a chest cold. Oh, well, I will just have to be stoic.

Yay, Youth (18 to 29) Vote!

I think this is so cool:

Youth Turnout Up By 2 Million From 2004

Based on those figures, more young people went to the polls this year than they did in any election since 1972 when the voting age was lowered from 21 to 18, the researchers said. And 66 percent of them supported Mr. Obama, while 31 percent favored Senator John McCain.

Without these votes and the energy of these same people, volunteering, spreading the message and talking to their families, things might not have unfolded as they did.

Match Game

In other news, I've been asked to be a panelist on "Match Game," to be played at Saturday's OutlantaCon game day. I promised nervouscricket to dress fab. I think I will try for big hair. I was going to dye it anyway. And use my henna kit... somewhere!

What I want to know is, can I get all drunk like the original Match Game people did? (They would tape a week's worth in one day and take "breaks" in between, so that Friday's episode was always the most lewd.)
