One tired, hungover, happy political junkie  
I was up till late last night, savoring electoral developments.  Although I live in a Republican state, so red that it gives off infrared radiation,  I defiantly vote for progressive candidates every two years.  One of these times I may be pleasantly surprised and wake up in a blue state.  Or at least a purple one.

Anyway, as I said, I was up all till all hours, watching GOP peckerwoods go down to defeat before Elizabeth Warren, Sherrod Brown, Tammy Baldwin, etc.  Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington came out against bigotry and for marriage equality.  A coupla states even legalized marijuana.

I did finally get smashed, but had the decency to hold off on reaching for the rum and Coke until President Barack Obama was declared the winner.  I have a few issues with Obama but nevertheless feel very, very good about his re-election.  We have dodged, not a bullet, but an entire barrage of 16-inch shells aimed at Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, Planned Parenthood, Big Bird, oh, the list goes on.

As for the opposition, it gives me an added thrill to know that right-wing billionaires pissed away tens of millions of dollars and have relatively little to show for it.

Getting that money out of the savings bonds of a few billionaires and circulating through the economy in the form of payments to TV, newspapers, campaign spies & whoever else might be good for the economy in the next few months.

I wonder if that argument will work for Karl Rove as his billionaire pigeons fit him with cement boots.
