    Default Larry David: Waiting for 11/4 is like waiting for biopsy results

    Waiting for Nov. 4th

    I can't take much more of this. Two weeks to go, and I'm at the end of my rope. I can't work. I can eat, but mostly standing up. I'm anxious all the time and taking it out on my ex-wife, which, ironically, I'm finding enjoyable. This is like waiting for the results of a biopsy. Actually, it's worse. Biopsies only take a few days, maybe a week at the most, and if the biopsy comes back positive, there's still a potential cure. With this, there's no cure. The result is final. Like death.
    Five times a day I'll still say to someone, "I don't know what I'm going to do if McCain wins." Of course, the reality is I'm probably not going to do anything. What can I do? I'm not going to kill myself. If I didn't kill myself when I became impotent for two months in 1979, I'm certainly not going to do it if McCain and Palin are elected, even if it's by nefarious means. If Obama loses, it would be easier to live with it if it's due to racism rather than if it's stolen. If it's racism, I can say, "Okay, we lost, but at least it's a democracy. Sure, it's a democracy inhabited by a majority of disgusting, reprehensible turds, but at least it's a democracy." If he loses because it's stolen, that will be much worse. Call me crazy, but I'd rather live in a democratic racist country than a non-democratic non-racist one. (It's not exactly a Hobson's choice, but it's close, and I think Hobson would compliment me on how close I've actually come to giving him no choice. He'd love that!)
    The one concession I've made to maintain some form of sanity is that I've taken to censoring my news, just like the old Soviet Union. The citizenry (me) only gets to read and listen to what I deem appropriate for its health and well-being. Sure, there are times when the system breaks down. Michele Bachmann got through my radar this week, right before bedtime. That's not supposed to happen. That was a lapse in security, and I've had to make some adjustments. The debates were particularly challenging for me to monitor. First I tried running in and out of the room so I would only hear my guy. This worked until I knocked over a tray of hors d'oeuvres. "Sit down or get out!" my host demanded. "Okay," I said, and took a seat, but I was more fidgety than a ten-year-old at temple. I just couldn't watch without saying anything, and my running commentary, which mostly consisted of "Shut up, you prick!" or "You're a fucking liar!!!" or "Go to hell, you cocksucker!" was way too distracting for the attendees, and finally I was asked to leave.
    Assuming November 4th ever comes, my big decision won't be where I'll be watching the returns, but if I'll be watching. I believe I have big jinx potential and may have actually cost the Dems the last two elections. I know I've jinxed sporting events. When my teams are losing and I want them to make a comeback, all I have to do is leave the room. Works every time. So if I do watch, I'll do it alone. I can't subject other people to me in my current condition. I just don't like what I've turned into -- and frankly I wasn't that crazy about me even before the turn. This election is having the same effect on me as marijuana. All of my worst qualities have been exacerbated. I'm paranoid, obsessive, nervous, and totally mental. It's one long, intense, bad trip. I need to come down. Soon.




    Larry David: Waiting for Nov. 4th

    What's sad here is that we even have to worry about elections being stolen. You can blame Bush for that.

    I feel really nervous this election. I'm more excited than I've ever been but at the same time, I know that the outcome of this one will have dire consequences. The bar is higher this time around.

    That description of weed is hilarious. Makes me paranoid, too.

    I agree too. And I too found myself muttering quite loudly at the TV during the last debate, much of it explective filled.

    Gotta agree with Larry. The anticipation is a killer.

    I like Larry David,too, but this analogy is offensive. People waiting to hear if they have cancer or not are actually in much worse shape than someone just anxious over a fucking election. The hyperbole of comparing a McCain victory to death from cancer is a poor choice to me. I get sick of people comparing things they don't like or are inconvenient or merely disappointing to a legitimate life threatening illness for which there isn't always a cure.

    Interesting. I have lost some dear loved ones to cancer, and some dear loved ones have survived it. And yet, I did not take offense at all. Sorry you did, crumpet. Sorry you didn't know the anxiety of stressing about whether the next four-eight years of your life would be dark ones: sickness and inability to pay to prevent/cure/alleviate it; loss of income; loss of home; loss of social welfare to help pay for bills; blah blah blah.

    For some of us, living under the thumb of another Republican/Right-Wing-Driven regime would most assuredly continue to result in sickness and/or death. That's a cold hard fact of life in G. Dubya's Amurrika.

    Dallas: don't be sorry about me. I wasn't struck down on the floor crying over the comment. I will say this: if you were so anxious that if Obama didn't win that the next 8 years of your life would be hell on earth and full of dark clouds and pain, you really need to reevaluate your life as well as your expectations of what Obama is going to accomplish. He is not going to erase these problems so everyone will be healthy, employed, and living in a nice house. There have always been people who can't pay their bills and who get sick. These current problems are real but there are many things that the average citizen (including myself) has done voluntarily to contribute to a poorer quality of life. Many of us have credit cards for thousands of dollars, most of which was used to purchase non-necessity items. Sure there is always the story of the person who went bankrupt due to medical issues that they didn't have insurance to cover, but they are not the majority by a long shot. We all need to be honest with ourselves. Many people bought houses that were out of their price range when they knew they didn't have the funds to pay when their ARM went up. They gambled on the chance of refinancing and they lost. No one knows what the future holds so it is irresponsible to go into debt with the idea that we'll pay it off 'later' when we get that raise, promotion, bonus, or whatever. Any of us could have an accident or lose our job or get divorced or experience any number of things that cause hardship. When something bad happens we look at all the 'things' we have and have to consider that those 'things' won't pay the bills. It isn't the responsibility of the government to make sure I can do whatever I want without consequence. We are a nation of people who have a hard time doing without things we want. We are also a nation of people who like to blame other people for everything. Don't believe me? Then explain all the stupid lawsuits that get filed every day.

    I am not defending the criminal and unethical behavior of the banks and other corporations. It is inexcusable and they should be held accountable and the government needs to handle things differently from now on. But regardless of who is in office I will enjoy my life. I will treasure the great relationships I have and will continue to do things I enjoy and am prepared to make due with less when the situation calls for it. The President cannot make or break my happiness. I've learned some things the hard way,too.

    Waiting for the inauguration is like having a malignant tumor and they say they have to wait several weeks before you can have it removed.
