    Wherever you stand on the candidates, here's one thing we can all agree on: This election has been a total shit show. From the flat-out ridiculous scandals to the ridiculously terrifying ones, there hasn't been a dull moment yet. And come Tuesday, this writer will either be celebrating the first woman president, or moving to Canada. (But that's a story for another day.)
