Good Morning Bloggers - WHAT A FANTASTIC AND BEAUTIFUL MORNING! I'm sure most of you are just as happy as I am this morning. I hope this feeling can last a long time, despite all the work that needs to be done. Unfortunately, I need to write about both the good and the bad regarding the election this morning.
The good, of course, is Obama's victory along with significant majorities in the House and Senate. The bad, so far, is that the Republican - and Bush lackey - Norm Coleman of Minnesota might have won last night. The man is one of the worst Republican tools, so let us pray the recount goes our way and Al Franken becomes a senator. The good news is the AP just "uncalled" the election for Coleman this morning, so keep your fingers crossed.
Shockingly, I hate to report that one of the WORST REPUBLICANS WON - Michelle Bachman of Minnesota. All I can say is WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE IN MINNESOTA! They're both pretty horrible, but Bachman is VILE! Oh well, she's your problem now. Good luck with that.
I'm also DISGUSTED TO REPORT that Prop 8 might be a victory for the Mormons and the Catholics in my state of California. One of our state's newest civil rights, gay marriage, might be overturned. Discrimination might be written into our constitution for the first time in our history. It is very sad. All I can say is you guys will always BE MARRIED in my book. We'll fix it, but in the meantime try to be happy anyway - that's written into a much more IMPORTANT constitution.
It's also important to remember that some vote stealing did occur around the country yesterday, and it is important for all of us to be aware of it and to try and make sure it DOES NOT STAND! Incredibly, there are reports on different voter fraud websites that as many as six million votes went illegally to Republicans last night, and that the Democrats might have won more states, like Montana, Georgia, and North Dakota to name a few.
According to many sources, Republican operatives were hard at work in Georgia stealing ballots and threatening voters. They allegedly failed to replace broken voting machines in African-American districts, and forced people to vote provisionally when their names did not appear on the rolls.
Overall, despite our wonderful national success, it would appear that it was a bad night for Democracy in Georgia. Unfortunately, if we cannot overturn the results, the SCUMBAG SAXBY CHAMBLISS, who beat triple amputee and Vietnam vet Max Cleland in 2004 by calling him "a friend of Osama bin Laden," will remain a US Senator. Let us hope that we can prove the theft and defeat Chambliss before it's too late.
So, we MUST CELEBRATE TODAY, but we must also keep fighting. Max Chambliss MUST NOT GO TO THE US SENATE! We must all write our congressional offices and demand justice. Unfortunately, this cannot be over until we all demand the necessary recounts. Still, God bless America! We did it. We WON! Congratulations to us all!
