The Election of...

I spent the entire political season not saying anything about my personal beliefs online. I never wanted to alienate people or seem as though I am not open to other beliefs different than my own. But with the numbers pouring in tonight and the voices of Anderson Cooper and Wolf Blitzer, I feel like the American people have lost their minds. 

I was listening to Hamilton this morning (shocker, I know), and the lyrics to "The Election of 1800" suddenly seemed incredibly apropos. Hamilton says, 

"The people are asking to hear my voice
For the country is facing a difficult choice
And if you were to ask me who I'd promote--
--Jefferson has my vote
I have never agreed with Jefferson once
We have fought on like seventy-five diff'rent fronts
But when all is said and all is done
Jefferson has beliefs. Burr has none."

Amen Mr. Hamilton. Just update the names, and we're in business.
