And the next morning watching Kerry concede. Oh man. And no bar open nearby our little hotel in Galena. What a dreadful way to spend it. I still want a redo.

I have forgiven you, America.

But I'm still pissed at Arizona, Arkansas, California, and Florida for their anti-queer ballot initiatives. WTF? Especially Ark: no adoption? Fuck you, bigots!

Also: the kids are alright again. 18-29 year olds went 66% - 32% for Obama. That's more like it.

I'm still struggling with that one. It continues to baffle me how anyone with a working brain in 2004 could think 4 more years of Bush was a good idea. Dumb shits - what were you all thinking?!

Luckily, at least in California's case, it's quite obvious that all that's needed to change the constitution is a 50% vote. So, I expect that prop 8 will get flipped over in a couple years.

However, the campaign for 8 was truly despicable and omnipresent. I saw ads for it plastered over just about every website I went to, including this one (I blame adsense or whatever, not you, Jake et al), and the ads were completely full of bullshit. One thing about the people backing the proposition is that they don't really have to be honest about anything and they'll do whatever it takes to win, so they resorted to blatant scare tactics, including saying that we'd be teaching gay marriage in schools, which is ridiculous on multiple levels.

Even stranger than that is by looking at the popular election results, there had to have been a section of people that voted both for Obama in 08 in Bush in 2004.

What is the mental process that goes from voting for god, gays, and "terr" to four years later supporting Obama? Did 10 percent of the population do some serious self-reflection? Or are they just sheep? (don't answer that one)
