p0tat0es: (welcome to the terrordome)
Last night was awesome, amazing, wonderful, great...I'm not sure if it's totally hit me yet. (I tend to have a delayed, if any, reaction to a lot of things.) Cait and I went to the VFW hall so I could vote, and then hit the liquor store for supplies. We started watching the results come in at my house, and then moved to her place for a bit. We got caught in a hailstorm of Biblical proportions in between. I thought a funnel cloud was going to descend on Ballard. Anyhow, we eventually ended up at Hazlewood, where they had a couple of TVs set up, and were giving out pizza from Snoose Junction next door. The place was full of revellers from the hood - the Fiore kids, 3/4ths of the Cops, Ben Shepherd (first time I'd seen that dude in forevers), Matt Harvey, and one McCain supporter. Poor sonofabitch.

We got there right as Ohio was called for Obama. And it just kept getting better. They turned the sound off for a bit before the West Coast polls closed and put on some Stevie Wonder. As people were dancing and drinking and chatting, I turned and looked at one of the TVs, which displayed a graphic showing that the election had been called for Obama. All I could do was point and started shouting "Look look look look!" The sound came back on, and the place went apeshit.

Sadly, there was no dancing in the street, but we had dancing on the sidewalk covered.

I, for the first time in a long time, am hopeful for this country.

“Barack and Hillary have made their intentions clear regarding Iraq and the war on terror. They would retreat and declare defeat,” said Romney.

Just to verify: Mitt Romney's statement implies that there are still people who think Iraq had something to do with 9/11.

Not too far a stretch coming from a guy who got 'Obama' and 'Osama' confused.

I saw a man-on-the-street interview on one of the networks' evening news programs right before the South Carolina primary. The man expressed some concern because Obama and Osama sound alike.

To this man, and others like him who get these two unrelated people confused, I say this: figure it out and don't be a fucking imbecile.

Saw Dancer In The Dark last night. Um...let's just say that it's not the most uplifting film. In fact it's really fucking sad. By the end pretty much all of the theater was crying. Fudge. Anna & I then went to the Irish Emmigrant to get a drink and unwind after the movie. Then the news declared George Dubyuh Bush the next president. The one drink turned into about five. Even the people who worked at the bar, who are, as the name suggests, Irish emmigrants, were sad...and they can't even vote! Drank until about 1:30. Then home (the woman's crib). Got up late (7:25). Was 15 minutes late to work. Oh well. What does it matter? Half of the country is all gung-ho for a coke-snorting frat boy from Texas (which should be given back to Mexico, methinks). I can's say I like Gore, but Bush is worse, and I wished that everyone who voted for Nader had paid more attention. Ol' Ralphie boy, bless his soul, didn't even get his 5%. Sucks to be him. And sucks to be us.
