I was in a hotel breakfast room this morning when a guy walked in, looked at the newspaper, and said “I can’t believe Obama won.”

The fifty-something woman who works there cleaning off the tables said: “They could put a five-year-old in there for all I care. I don’t vote for nobody and I don’t pay any attention to any of it. They’re all the same.”
