I woke up at 4am like a kid on Christmas morning. I couldn't wait to see what was under my Election Day tree.
Best present: Republicans take over Senate and keep the House.
It looks like I will keep both my bosses for at least another year - recounts and absentee ballots notwithstanding. I don't mean to sound gleeful over their losses but they are still judges and I can't feel that awful knowing that my work environment won't be in a state of upheaval like I feared.
In some of the races I was following in other states, Florida voted to restrict indoor smoking, Arizona voted against the use of medical marijuana, and Nevada, the state where you can get married to a drunken hooker at 3am in a ceremony performed by JoJo the dog-faced wonder boy, has voted to keep the ban on gay marriages.
A side note on my feelings regarding states not recognizing gay marriages: Don't stand around being all holier-than-thou because you are progressive enough to legislate against "hate crimes," including bias crimes against gays. If you do that and then vote to ban gay marriages you are being hypocritcal fools talking out of both sides of your mouth. How can you say that discrimination against people for being gay is wrong, but then draw up a legislation basically declaring that being gay and in love with someone enough to marry them is wrong?
I do believe that Terry McAuliffe may be the Dem's fall guy. I have a feeling he's sharpening his pencil and pulling out the classified ads right about now.
It's only 5am here, so a lot of the online newspapers haven't updated their pages yet to include cries of racism, coercion, underhanded electioneering tactics, recounts, attorneys, broken levers, hanging chads and fraudulent voting, or op-eds blaming the VRWC, the decline and fall of western civilization, bad weather, heavy traffic, Boba Fett, soul eaters or John Allen Muhammed.
See this hand waving back and forth? That's me waving buh-bye to Tom Daschle's ego.
Look for an empowered Bush administration to submit a new resolution on Iraq to the U.N. today.
I hope you Republican politicians will keep in mind that a lot of people held their noses to vote because of the war on terrorism. It doesn't mean we want you in our bedrooms, ok?
Nicely worded, Kathy.
There's a whole lot more to report on and I'll be doing it all day.
