With less than a week to go before the US presidential election, I comfort myself with the thought that there could be worse things than a Romney win. I hear that the Bubonic Plague has made an appearance lately, it could come back in full force. Or we could experience pestilence and locusts, that would suck pretty badly. Fran Drescher or Pauly Shore could show up on prime time TV, or Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez could make Gigli 2; even just typing such things is horrible. Of course, Romney could appoint Sarah Palin as Secretary of State and a freak triple accident could thrust her into the Presidency (and on to the American people and the world), then we’d all be wishing to have Romney back. Scary thoughts on Halloween.
See, things could be worse than a Romney win. I hope I didn’t pick the wrong decade to stop drinking.
