Nice one!

You celebrate with food and merriment. I celebrate huddled with hubby watching the thing unfold and sobbing on and off all night. I'm just as thrilled as you are, just have a weird way of showing it I guess.

Congrats Obama/Biden!

Nothing weird about it -- we Dems had the last two presidential elections STOLEN by highly partisan Republican Secretaries of State -- first Katherine Harris in Florida, then Ken Blackwell in Ohio. In both cases, they used their positions to break the law and unfairly push their critical swing state into the Republican column.

We have also watched the rise of computerized voting systems -- manufactured by companies whose CEOs had direct links to the Republican party, and running secret "proprietary" software that could not be independently verified.

We have also watched the increasing incidence of Republican "dirty tricks" -- jamming Dem party phone lines, executing "denial of service" attacks on computer systems, putting out misleading information designed to trick people into not voting...

The only way a Democrat can win at ALL as things stand, is to win so big, it can't be stolen.

Furthermore, for the last eight years, we Dems have watched our country turn into a twisted, evil version of itself. We torture! We spy on our own citizens! We attack foreign countries without provocation! We've become the world's largest banana republic!

Huddling and sobbing, as we watch the first honest-to-god ray of hope in eight years finally take hold, is not even slightly unreasonable...

Hell, I'm *STILL* quaking. McCain, FOX, and the right-wing radio zealots have made sure there's a hell of a lot of wackos out there -- each convinced that Obama is a Socialist Terrorist Antichrist and that assassination is the only honorable, patriotic course.

THAT storyline -- that America will prove it's as ignorant and racist as ever, by KILLING their first black president -- will keep me up at night for a long time to come...
