Why I’m Thankful the Election is Almost Over

Polling in Arkansas ends in 3.5 hours from this writing. I am very thankful for that. It means that some of the worst E-mails I’ve ever received in my life will stop for a time. I did not vote for Barack Obama. I’m not comfortable with his platform as my political leanings trend toward small-government conservatism with a dash of “let’s get out of Iraq”. Even though I have great political differences with Mr. Obama, I’m happy to stand by him and say “That’s not just wrong, it’s sinful” to the E-mails wondering if the Obama White House menu will include things like fried chicken, collard greens, and watermelon. To the E-mails wondering if the presidential vehicles will have hydraulics. To the E-mails denouncing Obama as the Antichrist. To the E-mails of those who believe Sarah Palin is the Esther of our generation.

If nothing else, tomorrow will bring relief to my inbox. Oh yeah, tomorrow, no matter who won, Jesus will still be Lord. Not Obama and not McCain. Jesus. Hallelujah.

P.S. In case you are wondering, I didn’t vote for McCain, either.
