"In the city of my birth, I had a dream..."
Wow...*stares at CNN* Democrats in Montana and Virginia are ever-so-slightly ahead...!

I'm living in hope right now.

At least Kean didn't beat out Menendez here in New Jersey. (In spite of the "Vote Republican!" glossy flyer canvassers left on the doorstep yesterday morning.) I'm so utterly relieved.

And, Santorum and Hayworth, two big psychotic right wingers, were kicked out! Yay!! ^__^

Maybe the country is starting to come to its senses? Now, let's see if the Democrats can manage to not screw up for two years ^^;

Though the guy who beat out Santorum, Casey, is ANOTHER social conservative. Not necessarily the greatest of improvements, but at least the rest of the Democratic agenda will make headway.
8th-Nov-2006 12:34 pm (UTC)
Oh well, at least he's a D instead of an R, that's something..

Provided you're looking at the Senate results for VA, and not House. Because the Republicans pretty much swept the house with a large lead in all districts (per usual). And the #!%$%! marriage amendment is going to pass.

I hate my state.
8th-Nov-2006 01:30 pm (UTC)
Senate, of course. The Democrats have already wrapped up the House majority. ^_~

(Republicans swept the House in my district in NJ, as well. T_T )
8th-Nov-2006 01:38 pm (UTC)
In *NJ*!?! The hell?

I'm going to be on edge until they announce the final Sentate results for VA. Which is probably going to take several days. But regardless of the outcome, the Dems have a solid (although not huge) majority in the House, and are almost dead-even in the Senate. Which should hopefully mean that we won't have any more rubber-stamping of Bush's pet projects.

In *NJ*!?! The hell?

Morris, Hunterdon, and Somerset counties in New Jersey (the area that I grew up in) is RICHRICHRICH and therefore Republican. Naturally, the Republicans that get voted in in general are fiscally conservative and socially moderate to liberal...but still.

The Virginia and Montana races just make me want to bite my fingernails off.

But yeah, the more Bush fingers we can pry off of the government steering wheel, the better.

I lived in Morris, totally Republican ^^;

Go Democrats! Maybe things will actually get done to better this country rather then Sandland.
9th-Nov-2006 04:34 am (UTC)
"Sandland"? ^^; Where's that?
9th-Nov-2006 04:35 am (UTC)
To the east, commonly known at Iraq.
9th-Nov-2006 04:37 am (UTC)
Oh, okay. Haven't heard that one before. ^_~

So, do we believe the Associated Press or don't we?
9th-Nov-2006 04:44 am (UTC)
About what exactly?
I am slightly sad we won't have Rumsfeld's hand puppets anymore though. ;)
9th-Nov-2006 04:45 am (UTC)
That the AP is calling the VA senate race for a Webb victory---which means Democrats control the Senate, too!!!!
9th-Nov-2006 04:46 am (UTC)
I hope so! How you feel about Guilliani possibly running for Pres in '08?
9th-Nov-2006 04:47 am (UTC)
*rolls eyes* Like the NY 2001 senate race all over again. But he's better than a lot of the Republican alternatives.
9th-Nov-2006 04:49 am (UTC)
Yeah true. he's someone I'd possibly vote for due to his decent track record and how his charisma and way he did things during 9/11.

I'm watching CNN now (I dunno why), they're having a report on how evangilists may have hurt or helped Republicians.
9th-Nov-2006 04:50 am (UTC)
I'd still vote for Hillary. ^_~
9th-Nov-2006 04:52 am (UTC)
Oh? Though be intresting to see Bill the First Man. ^^
9th-Nov-2006 04:54 am (UTC)
Amen, brother. This country needs a first "First Gentleman," and Bill fits the bill perfectly. XD

So. What were the Evangelical Christians doing this time around according to CNN?
9th-Nov-2006 04:57 am (UTC)
Bill can clean and do the dishes. ^^

Mostly wondering if 1/3 of them voting Democrat would hurt or help the Republicians. I ended up flipping the channel by accident.
9th-Nov-2006 04:59 am (UTC)
Evangelical movements (abolition, prohibition, etc.) in this country have historically been-short lived. They quickly conclude that politics and Godliness don't go together. It'd be nice to read this era's one it's last rites.
9th-Nov-2006 05:03 am (UTC)
Amen to that my sista.

How do you feel about not seeing Rummy's hand puppets anymore?
9th-Nov-2006 05:05 am (UTC)
You know, I've thought he was a mistake since 2001. It's taken the rest of the world 5 years to catch up with my way of thinking. At this rate, the world will see it my way in, oh, 500 years. *sighs*
9th-Nov-2006 05:10 am (UTC)
You still got me. *offers tea* History will see Rummy for what he is- a master of hand puppets and stupidity. Least with those skills he can entertain children (and Bush).
9th-Nov-2006 05:11 am (UTC)
I think Rumsfeld was caught in the past. Which made him want to do Iraq in the first place.

Ah, well, anyway, I need to be off to bed, now. Night night! ^_^
9th-Nov-2006 05:17 am (UTC)
He needed to entertain himself and Bush wasn't smart enough.
