I woke up this morning with many things to do, only to realize I was out of coffee. So, en route to the laundromat, I stopped at 7-Eleven. I didn’t realize it was Free Coffee Day until I was inside and told that I had made the deadline by 15 minutes. Which explained the crowd around the coffee makers.
Now, in case you aren’t familiar, 7-Eleven hold a 7-Election during national political decisions, offering a cup for each candidate, and your choice counts as a “vote” in their poll. I’ll be interested to see how the results look after today, because those were the only cups available in which to put free coffee. What I did notice was this: Every single person there for free coffee at the time had Obama cups. (Myself included, obviously!) And the Obama stack was depleted, while the Romney stack was still tall.
I find this comforting.
Of course, Romney would just probably say this just proves his point.
