Election Weary

Face it, we’ll all be glad when this is over.

I know, I know. I’ve been highly partisan during this election. I’ve offended multitudes of people on the Internet. At the same time I’ve had people tell me they read everything I post and that I’m

their source of information.

As I write this, we’re a little more than three days away from the Election.

Thank the good Lord above.

And no, that’s not sacrilegious, it’s completely sincere.

I’ve written before that, while I know this election is very important and while I believe the future of our country hinges on the outcome, that regardless, God is still in control.

Erick Erickson said it far better than I could have:

My world view is pretty simple. I think this world is destined to go to hell in a hand basket by design. I think things are supposed to go to pot. So if Barack Obama wins, I won’t be upset. If Mitt Romney wins, I won’t be running through the streets cheering. I think, either way, it is all part of the design. The world is going down hill. Barack Obama re-elected just gets us down the slippery slope faster in my view. For others, it is Mitt Romney who does.

God is sovereign and He is in charge and He will return. That is my hope and my ever present expectation.

Read the whole piece, you’ll be glad you did.

So, I agree.

Come Wednesday, the sun will rise. God will still be in control.

Life may get a little better. It may suck a little more.

But Jesus told us it would be like this. On the night before he was crucified, Jesus told the disciples:

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
John 16:33 (NIV)

So, I’ll be sad if my candidates lose on Tuesday. I really don’t think they will, but that’s another story.

For now, I’m just weary. I’m tired of the phone calls and the emails and the direct mail. And I’m even tired of talking about the election on the blogs and on Facebook and Twitter. I won’t miss that.

It’s somewhat irreverent, but the incredible Madeline Kahn says it well in this number from Blazing Saddles. Face it, we know what she’s talking about and we know what politicians do to us. It fits.
