Watching democracy

I can’t decide if I should stay up to watch the results. As normal the TV coverage is a hodgepodge of riveting and banal, filler and revelation, and pointless shouting from Peter Snow. Most of this is frustrating, but it feels like this pain and excitement should be experienced first hand rather than going to bed and checking the result in the morning.

What has been interesting (or worrying) me today is the continual campaigning of Bush & Kerry. I am very bothered by the implication that people will decide who to vote for simply by who turns up to their state the most. I’d like to think this wasn’t the case, but there must be something in it otherwise they wouldn’t be making the effort.
