It would be nice to daydream that there is a great silent majority (where have I heard that term before?) out there, quietly waiting for the polls to open on Tuesday so that they can restore some sanity and order to the nation and send the crazies back into the shadows.

It would also be nice if I hadn’t lost my jump shot–well, okay, my entire “jump”–but we go into November with the reality we have, not the one we wish we had.

Jimmy Carter once said he wanted to give this county “a government as good as its people.” In a few days, his dream may be realized.

Be careful what you wish for.
