I don’t get it. Alright, that’s not entirely true. I understand the desire to check in and see what’s going on. What I don’t understand is feeling compelled to watch non-stop election coverage. Because really? You watching? Not going to change ANYTHING. Also? Not exciting.
In the 2004 election my roommates insisted we watch election coverage and NOTHING else. As if changing the channel for half an hour to watch a sitcom might change the outcome. Or maybe they thought all the votes from the last several states would magically come in and be counted in the next half hour even though the polls WERE STILL OPEN. I finally gave up trying to convince them otherwise and left. Then I laughed to myself when I turned on the TV the next morning and the election was STILL undecided. Good thing they watched all that coverage.
Anyway, it’s election day so if you haven’t already, GO VOTE. Watch election coverage or not. Sooner or later we’ll find out who the next president will be.
