Happy election day!

Ah, election day, the culmination of the months-long grueling hard work of thousands of campaign workers and volunteers, exhausted candidates for public office, millions of dollars of Bob Perry’s money, and a tuckered-out electorate tired of being lied to, but also thinking that the lies don’t sound half-bad to them.

Never fear, Texans, because by tomorrow, your network TV commercials will be back to that hysterically funny talking baby flacking for E-Trade, instead of ads about Diana Maldonado being absent, Bill White being wonky, Lloyd Doggett being Lloyd Doggetty, or Patrick Rose being a tax-and-spend liberal and/or shamelessly bashing immigrants, depending on who paid for the time slot.

Meanwhile, it’s not looking good for the home team across the nation, except for the good-natured attendees of the Comedy Central rally in D.C. last weekend. At least they made us laugh.

Here, courtesy of HuffPo, are my favorite signs from the rally.

Did you vote early, or will you vote today? Congratulations, you win.

    So how good of a loss does our party have to have in order to call it a victory?

    It’s like the good ol’ days again.

    I’m hurt. You didn’t like my sign, although I admit HuffPo didn’t have a very flattering picture.

    It was a pretty big rally. CBS estimated 215K, but that didn’t include another couple hundred thousand folks trapped on the approach streets when the mall became crowded and the park service barricaded it off. DC Metro reported that ridership following the rally was up by 300K over average.
