I want my country forward...

The only bit of really good news can be summed up thusly:


Still, a grim day.

Yeah. Not enough to induce cheerfulness.

Although, there was some schadenfreude to see "I'm not a witch" O'Donnell be rejected. Now if only Batshit Bachman had also been shown the door...

Sadly, O'Donnell is the tea partier I disliked the least - she's a loon, but she's not a mean, evil loon, just a loon... whereas Rand Paul is a dangerous nut-job...

No, not evil, but I think I have Palin-type fatigue. Her voice was just grating and crazy-making. :P I was going to scream if I had to hear a clip of her saying something stupid one more time.

Did you read Gail Collins op-ed on her concession speech? It apparently ended with "we have the room all night, we have tons of food and drink, god bless you, let's party!" I can't hate that.

Nope, that's all good. :)

She won handily. She also spent an enormous sum of money. I was really surprised to see Earl Pomery ousted in ND. He's been there for a long time.

I saw something last night that said her district is THE most conservative in the state. No surprise - that's where my folks live. I just wish I hadn't had to be inundated by the ads for that race when I wasn't even able to vote her ass out.

Did you see her on MSNBC with the hypnotized comments? :)

I know. Me too.

Me three.
Today I mourn. Tomorrow I work harder for progressive causes and politicians.
