I have had many "awww so sorry for your loss" comments about the election at work.
First of all, this is not very smart. I am angry and could induce bodily harm to colleagues if they taunt me too much about the elections.
Second of all, friends have resorted to extreme measures should Bush win: one wants to start a support group that would involve lots of chocolate, another is seriously considering moving the New Zealand.
To which I respond, HOLD YOUR HORSES, HE HASN'T LOST YET. It's a really close race and your ill predications are not helping. So close your eyes really tight, wish upon a star and wait for the miracle. I'm convinced it'll happen.
