What We Won't Miss From Election '08

So Ana Marie Cox was one of the first to write about what she won't miss from the '08 election, but she's not the only one. Here at NPR, our intrepid political reporter Scott Horsley tells me he will gladly say good-bye to:

ICYMI emails. Stands for "in case you missed it". Usually attached to some self-serving op-ed column, circulated by the campaign. "In case you missed it" will not be missed.

And Carline Watson, our Senior Producer, adds:

"In the tank" as in so-and-so is "in the tank" for Obama or McCain. Don't want to hear it again.

And on www.wowowow.com, Candace Bergen says she WILL miss Tina Fey as Sarah Palin:

What I'll miss most about this ENDLESS campaign is how utterly engaging and compelling it has been. The addiction to political news shows. Well, actually, what I will miss most is Tina Fey as Palin. That has definitely been a high point.

And Liz Smith adds: "I won't miss a thing."
