Breaking News

There was just a "red banner headline" on the CNN website. Britney and K-Fed are ... well, they're Fed Up and filing for divorce citing "irreconcilable differences". Yeah, approximately 140 million differences.

CNN knew that we'd want to know.

What they don't want you to know is that they, and the other networks, have been feverishly exit-polling all day but you won't hear about it until the polls close. Why? Because they don't want to lose advertising revenues to the blogosphere. Oh, they'll tell you the reason is that they don't want to repeat mistakes of "mis-called" elections, as they've done in the past. But that's all bullshit. It's about the $$$. It's always about the $$$.

I haven't voted yet although New Jersey is probably one of the most hotly contested senate seats up for grabs. I'll vote when I get home around 7:00 p.m. I know how the voting machines work in my little 1-square-mile patch of paradise. I also know all the local poll workers, and they all know me.

I used to hate living in a small town. "I'm the only gay in the village" was my mantra (okay I stole that from the BBC show "Little Britain"). Now I like it. Only it turns out I'm not the only gay in the village anymore. In fact, a number of very rich gays from NYC are invading MY town and snatching up ancient Victorians (and believe me you know within months which ones they've bought... they look FABULOUS) and drive real estate prices (and real-estate taxes) through the friggin' roof.

Fucking fags. God love us.

For those of my faithful readers (Hi, Bev, hi Alan!!!) on the Best Coast, please ignore everything you may be seeing or hearing and drag yer asses out to the polls as soon as you can.

It ain't over until it's ALL over.

Vote.

It's the least any of us can do.

And if you really love me, you'll vote Democratic, which is hardly breaking news to anybody who knows me.
