Preparing for Kerry
I've been preparing myself for a Kerry victory so that if Bush does end up winning, I will be pleasantly surprised. I think this a coping mechanism that I have: expect the worst, then if things turn out OK, it's pretty exciting. I probably get this because I am a Cub fan. Anyway, one of the things for me to look forward to the most in a Kerry presidency is his charming wife Teresa. Nick Gillespie at Reason explains:
The Best Reason To Elect John Kerry...
...is Teresa Heinz Kerry, of course. Via Drudge comes her latest bon mot, served up in an interview with USA Today, where she disses Laura Bush thus:

"She seems to be calm, and she has a sparkle in her eye, which is good. But I don't know that she's ever had a real job--I mean, since she's been grown up."
Sure, Laura Bush has killed a man (which may explain why Dubya is so jumpy and especially why he walks like he's just heard an angry car door slam behind him). But THK promises to bring an Eva Gabor level of laffs cum hijinks to the White House. Is there any way she can become First Lady even if Frankenstein Jr. goes down the crapper, as the polls are currently predicting?
We'll see about those polls. The national polls are pointing in the right direction, but the electoral college is going to be a tough nut to crack. I don't know how the Ohio, Florida, Pennslyvania thing is going to happen for Bush. But we'll see. Crazier things have happened this year.
