Yet, lots of other things did not go so well. That horrible woman Bachmann won who said that Obama was un-american and that we need to bring back McCarthyism. Ted Stevens, the Alaska felon, might win. (He is winning, but its a recount) How the heck did that happen?? (He might be a felon, but he is our corrupt felon and he brings home the earmarks!)
Proposition 8 may pass, which I think is a real shame. It’s just so riddiculous. Why should straight couples care whether some stranger calls themselves married or not? Ugh, its pathetic.
The chickens won their rights, but most other things lost. Energy, Police. The veterans got some money and a rail between SF and LA passed. That confuses me. Who needs a that? Is it really that important? boggle.
And what about Al Franken!? He is down 500 votes out of 2 million? Come on Al! Good luck on the recount.
The web was very helpful during the election. We used NYTimes, CNN, Yahoo and MSNBC. They had great information with great user interfaces. It didn’t make them any money (investing in those RIA projects) but it sure was fun to use.
So it was a good day overall. The next two supreme court justices will be progressives. We will have a new energy bill. We might even get out of Iraq.
Good Luck Barack. We support our president.
And give Joe Biden something important to do. He deserves it.
