If you’re the hottest new blogger on the scene, with the hottest new book out that everybody’s buying fifty copies of, you vote by absentee ballot because you don’t know where you’ll be on Election Day. You might be giving a prestigious lecture at some Ivy League college . . . you might be on an island with Jay-Z and Bill Gates, schooling them on how to blog . . . you just don’t know.
So you vote ahead of time.
Which I did this morning.
Just to confirm: The Illinois senator’s name is on the ballot. This is totally happening.
(By the way, most anticlimactic moment of my life? YES. But if we’ve learned one thing this year, it’s that you win the game by keeping your head down and executing your strategy. Save the butterflies for the after-party.)
