I imagine most of my readers already voted by mail or are planning to vote today.  If you are teetering on staying home because the weather sucks or the Democrats are a disappointment, remember that (in almost every case for national and state office, anyway) the opponents of the Democrats are generally monsters, thugs, or sociopaths, or some combination thereof.  Mediocre people are still vastly preferable to truly bad ones. (I hope it is clear I am writing about the candidates on both sides, not the voters.)
