Right now, I cannot wait for the election to be over. Sure, I'm looking forward to the night itself: it'll be my first US election from this side of the pond, and I am eagerly anticipating watching the results come in, discussing it with Ben and our friends and family as the process goes on. It'll also be interesting to compare it to the way it's done in Britain.

Overall, though, I'm fed up with the whole thing. I can't stand the bickering; the petty sniping from both sides; the demonstrable lack of awareness of the rest of the world highlighted by media coverage. I can't even vote to make myself feel better! So my go-to trick for dealing with sudden onset election negativity is to watch the Romney vs. Obama Epic Rap Battle video, which I think actually sums up the whole thing rather well, and makes me laugh a bit too much.
That pretty much concludes any Queen's English USA Presidential election coverage until after the 6th. I will probably tweet a little throughout the evening itself, as the states' responses come in, but until then, please enjoy two Presidential candidates getting verbally and physically bitch-slapped for disintegrating the 2012 electoral campaigns into variations of the same turd.
