Two Positive Notes on a Night of Audacity


Prop 8, banning “gay marriage”, has passed in California.

The Senate will almost certainly not have 60 Democrats in it, giving Republicans filibuster power to stop the worst of the bad legislation that is likely to come at us like a flood. There are four Senate races undecided, according to RealClearPolitics, as I write this, but the Republicans lead in all four. In Georgia, the only question is whether Saxby Chambliss will get the 50% + 1 needed to forestall a runoff election. Yes, I did vote Libertarian there; if there’s a runoff, I’ll vote for Chambliss. In Minnesota, Norm Coleman leads that goofball Al Franken…”Senator Al Franken”, wow…words fail me…by a slim margin; a recount is likely, but Coleman appears to have survived. Gordon Smith is narrowly leading his opponent in Oregon, but that’s with only 75% of the votes counted, so that could go Dem. And that Republican clown Ted Stevens is somehow ahead in Alaska. Fine…let him win the seat, and then when he goes to jail, Sarah can appoint someone to fill his seat. Hmmm…Sarah herself? Hmmm…

    Dogs ought to beware chasing after the car they want too hard, they might actually catch it and hurt themselves. A man in my church has a dog that ran headfirst into a car bumper that stopped unexpectedly, and the dog nearly broke its own neck.

    It might be tougher to govern 55 million people who voted against him than BO thinks.

    Should make for an interesting four years.
