sore winner

Last night, Manda and I were down in Mountain View helping out at the Registrar of Voters until about midnight for the mid-term election. Manda has been a lead for a few years now staffing and running a precinct supply return station and I've been helping out as part of the hired muscle.

All night I was completely glued to the election results as they were coming in - desperate to watch what was happening around the country and watching the statement from Red America that the neo-cons had officially squandered all political capital they once had.

Suffice it to say, I'm a very happy little democrat today. It's nice to wake up to a Democratic Congress and the ouster of Rumsfeld. Now, if only my back wasn't killing me, I'd be able to jump for joy.

Now that the AP is declaring Webb the victor in VA, and with that, the Dems the controllers of both the House AND the Senate... it's just starting to sink in. We realized tonight that this is the first good election news since we moved back to the states 6 years ago. It feels very nice.

And Katherine Harris lost last night which just reinforces that feeling all the more. Like putting closure on old wounds.

Yeah, Katherine Harris losing was such a nice little icing on the Blue Tide cake.

I have to say, I like the 100 hour plan. I hope it works.
