Back in September when Obama and McCain's numbers were starting to flip, Maureen Dowd got Aaron Sorkin to do a painfully funny* piece in which Obama meets the West Wing's Jed Bartlet. It ended with Bartlet delivering one of his tag lines, "Break's over."
So anyway. My break is over. I had two days to help the campaign and to rejoice in the result. Now I've got to face up to the fact that in my last two weeks of travel around the US, my two best clients yoinked the contracts that I had been counting on for things like food and gas for the rest of 2008. I'm scrambling. If you know anyone who needs a good marketing strategist or marketing writer, holler fast. Meanwhile, time for me to start dialing for dollars.
*not "so funny it was painful," but just funny with a lot of pain. I can laugh now.
Now that Obama's won, you don't need to work anymore. Just go down to the redistribution center and pick your check.
Just like (not) Joe the (not) Plumber.
