Election day is over.
There are lots of tears for some and lots of smiles for others.
For Jason Altmire, who defeated Melissa “Longest Neck in the World” Hart, there is lots of Jesus posing:
Is that not just the oddest celebration pose you’ve ever seen in your life? I’m actually a bit uncomfortable looking at it. It’s not like he was named Supreme Being Over All the Earth or anything. Chill, dude.
As for Melissa, in addition to holding her neck steady all night, she had the misfortune of losing her seat.
You all know I love me some Lynn Swann, so I was sad he lost to Ed “You got any danish on you?” Rendell. I did think that Lynn was gracious in defeat.
This also marked the first election with those newfangled electronic voting machines, which I’m pretty sure some old timers thought were the first slots machines to hit the city.
