The a little bit off-year election is just a day away from becoming nothing more than old news. Contemplating the meaning of this event offers an opportunity to count our blessings. After tomorrow, we will be able to watch television without scary boogeyman voices telling us that virtually everybody running for anything is Not For Us, whatever that means. We will be able to return to watching normal commercials that inform us how to instruct our physicians on what to prescribe.
If the polls and predictions are correct, we will still have a "Party of obstruction," but it will be the other party when the newly elected do-nothings assume their chairs. And, of course, Wednesday marks the beginning of the 2016 campaign season.
The real estate part of the election will be realized in the several days after it's over. The yard signs will disappear, except of course, for the for sale signs. I noticed one election contestant's sign looks remarkably like one of the more prominent real estate broker's for sale signs. Don't know whether that helped either the candidate or the broker.
