Breaking News

"Barack Obama has been elected the 44th president of the United States"

Halle-freakin'-lujah!

I don't care if he's black, or if he is or isn't a Muslim (and how very bigoted for those who spread that rumor to have presented it as if there were something wrong with that, not to mention a lie). I do care that people in my country recognized a need for change, and voted with hope instead of fear.

(Mrs. Quimby, that, along with the fact that Webs is going to start shipping Malabrigo Sock in the next few week, means that I do believe I won't be moving up Nawth to be your neighbor. It would have been fun, but I'm happy there are now good reasons to stay here.)

Now let's just hope that enough people in my new state recognize bigotry and injustice when they see it and vote No on Prop. 8.

Well, shucks! If I wasn't so happy for you (and the rest of us, frankly!) I'd be disappointed at losing you as a potential neighbour.

Under the circumstances, though, I guess I can suck it up.

Woo hoo!

It's not looking good for Prop 8. Still have to count all the absentee and provisional ballots though. SO fingers are still crossed.

I didn't realize how much money was going from the right into Prop. 8. Sick.

The fight isn't over, though.

Hooray for Obama! Boo hiss for all those Californian bible bashers who voted yes to prop 8! Hooray for high speed rail!

Hurray for Obama!!!! And the Prop 8 thing will go to court and we'll get it reversed. I just know what is right will prevail in the end.

Sorry to hear about Prop 8. I'm really surprised.

But yay for Obama; in Vermont it's like the whole state is celebrating. Except for the old guy who told my husband that he doesn't know anyone who voted for "that n****r."

What is wrong with people?

You've been way too quiet lately. Here's something to get you going again... You've been tagged girl! http://donnazchaos.blogspot.com/2008/11/meme-post.html

Sorry about Prop 8. I was just shocked, honestly -- but Massachusetts will welcome couples with open arms. Even the Mor(m)on who used to be the governor is no longer in office.

If I survive the layoff, I will be visiting SF to make nice-nice to some of the engineers on my new project. Can you come out and play?
