I’ve realized that most elections depress me

I’m sad today, but I’m realizing that this isn’t the first time:

1980:  I voted for Carter (yes, I was that dumb); Reagan won.  I was sad.  :(

1984:  I voted for Mondale (yes, I was that dumb); Reagan won.  I was sad.  :(

1988:  I voted for Dukakis (yes, I was that dumb); George H.W. Bush won.  I was sad.  :(

1992:  I voted for Clinton (yes, I was that dumb); Clinton won.  I was happy.  :)

1996:  I voted for Clinton (yes, I was that dumb); Clinton won.  I was happy.  :)

2000:  I voted for Gore (yes, I was that dumb); George W. Bush won.  I was sad.  :(

2004:  I voted for Bush; Bush won.  I was happy.  :)

2008:  I voted for McCain (gritting my teeth as I did so); Obama won.  I was sad.  :(

2012:  I voted for Romney (believing the fundamental would spell victory for him); Obama won.  I was sad.  :(

Nine elections and only three happy faces.  I’m perpetually running against the nation’s tide.  Maybe if I support Biden in 2016, Rubio will win.  Nah.  With my luck, the Fates will know I’m faking it, and Biden will win.

    Biden in 2016? I suppose weirder things have happened. For instance, when Caligula made his horse First Consul of Rome. Who would Biden’s horse be?

    CM surely you do not refer to a whole horse or perhaps just the Democrat mascot…

    The ad at the side of the page says “Stop Karl Rove. Expose the Super PAC’s role in controlling our elections. FIth back against Citizen’s United. Sign the Petition.”

    Gosh! I so wish they were right. Romney might’ve won…

    It’s not a horse-race…..there’s no reward (unless you count “feelings”, which conservatives should not) for casting your vote for the winner.
     
    Vote for what you see as the best for America, and let the chips fall.
     
    It appears that we are outnumbered in today’s America.
