I'm not suggesting you do this, but looking on Twitter for posts tagged with the enigmatic "#litf08" is to gaze directly into the suppurating eye of madness. As near as I can tell, it's a tag being used by a group of college-age McCain/Palin supporters. Do not bother looking. Curiosity spurred by the ELECTION2008 bar at the top of the Twitter homepage compelled me, and for my trouble I got a full-on stare into the goatse of the American psyche. Something I manage to forget every four years is that there are people out there whose vote counts just as much as mine, and at the moment I'm reminded, horror grips every cell in my body. I don't care even a little bit what "litf08" stands for, and I don't want to waste the braincycles necessary to come up with a joke version.
