Bouncer

From 3 p.m. till late, Bouncer drinks and jibes with fellow liberals at the 500 Club on election day

Earlier in the day Rush Limbaugh had been yammering on and on about how certain people just shouldn't be allowed to vote, that they were too stupid and it was good that they stayed away from the polls. He was of course referring to poor people, blacks, guys named Vlad the Impaler, and Latinos. So the Democrats are not simply made up of the cultural elite. Yep, we got our Frankies, and we have that last scattering of union guys, aspiring rappers, and we have social servants ... let's see, who else ... oh yeah! We have freakin' Jon Bon Jovi!

On the television, Tom Brokaw announced that Bush had captured Florida and was ahead in Ohio. It was as good as over. Frankie was paying no attention to the election results, thankfully, and I gave her a good luck squeeze and told her to come right back and tell me how it went. In about 30 minutes, while the rest of us were choking back tears, she rushed up beaming and exclaimed breathlessly, "It was like an orgasm! Just like an orgasm!"
