einstein at 14 weeks and election stuff

Einstein was 14 weeks old on November 5. ish. So here are a couple of shots of her now (click the image to see larger pictures)—her eyes are really pretty, I think, though she really does look a little demented. As if she is in total control and knows it.

ELECTION DAY
Stanley and I will be poll standing between 10am and 8pm, when the polls close. We’ll be at our polling place, Nathan Hale Middle School in Norwalk, which is great because we live next door, so it will be easy to head home to let the dog out and grab coffee and all that. I toyed with the idea of volunteering for the entire day, but getting up at 4:45am is a lot more than I can handle. Stanley would’ve just checked me in to the local loony bin, whichever one takes our insurance plan.

Poll standing is greeting voters and suggesting they vote Line B, which is the straight Democratic line. We’re putting our money where our mouths are—we’re losing quite a chunk of change taking the day off to do this, but I feel as if we’ll lose even more with two more years of unchecked lunacy in the White House. Maybe the Dems won’t be able to do a whole lot while Bushie is in the White House, but at least they can prevent any more damage. As in checks and balances as envisioned by the founders of this country.

The latest CT senate race poll numbers I saw are Lieberman-48%, Lamont-44%, and Schlesinger-5%. This is from Polimetrix from its press release “Handicapping the 2006 Election: What are the odds of the Democrats winning control of the Senate?” (pdf).

We went to a quick rally Monday evening, at Norwalk headquarters. Even though Ned campaigned all day, he didn’t look tired when we saw him around 6:00ish pm or so—I was amazed at that. Our rally was on WTNH on the 11pm news, but the video isn’t up on their website (yet, anyway).

I just have this feeling we’re going to win—that Ned and Diane will win Connecticut and the 4th District, respectively.

VOTE! It really counts this time.

  1. Sorry about Ned and Diane - it wasn’t in the cards.  I could see the writing on the wall about Ned from here: the campaign is one of lessons learned, steps not taken (or taken too late), and a centrist streak that still runs strong in the state.

    I’m really proud of all that you and Stanley did for Ned and Diane - a tip ‘o the hat to you!

  2. I’m so glad you posted Einstein’s pictures as it put a smile on my face even after such disappointment on the election.

    My blog’s title today is: Connecticut Votes for More War.

    bummed….

    Is anyone filing a complaint against those robocalls that start with Diane Farrell’s name misleading people into thinking her campaign is calling them all hours of the day and night??
