a little hopeful, a little disgusted

Okay, America. We voted for "change we can believe in". Hopefully that's more than a prom theme.



That's the first step. Now, what is this change we're believing in? And how are we going to make it happen? Affordable health care, first-class education, and fixing "this whole economy thing", yeah?

Hoo boy.

The disgust: California seems to have voted bigotry into the constitution. Stupid, stupid, stupid. I'm hoping that gets the old judicial smack-down from the US Supreme Court.

I hadn't heard the update on prop 8 until now.

Someday, somewhere, if someone can explain how the heck it matters who marries whom (short of inbreeding), and make sense, I will give them a cookie. They will also have a winning lottery ticket in their pocket that they didn't actually buy and then go draw a couple of straights in poker, 'cos I haven't heard anything that remotely works so far.

We'll see what happens next.

I woke up to some emails saying "Don't give up, it's not called yet!". But the US across the board agreed to similar things.

er, and it looks like it has been called.
