Time for a pep talk. I think you are right about the polling. I went to bed thinking Cristy and Hagan were certs – woke up to find them gone! How Scott survived in Florida is anyone’s guess. The polls had Cristy ahead by a good margin so wtf. Walker in Wisconsin? I had a friend for dinner a week or so ago who obtained her citizenship so she could vote against the fecker.
Of course the Dems didn’t come out to vote and that made it a lot easier for any shenanigans to be hidden. The over 65s did and you know how they vote generally. And as you say, the lily-livered Democrats did not back Obama. They shied away from him. The funny thing about all that was that the Democrats who held onto their beliefs and had him campaign for them got elected.
If I were an American, you know what I would be doing. I would be campaigning for electoral reform. I don’t know what the situation is in the US, but I think that here if you collect so many signatures, you can actually force a referendum. You guys need to get rid of those damn machines. It is absolutely heartbreaking to think that your vote didn’t count or was flipped. That is not democracy. The Republicans have been stealing votes for years and it is time that it was stopped.
I hope that Mitch will want a legacy. He can’t be seen to be such an obnoxious turtle this time around. I am hoping that he will try and get something done. I am being optimistic. Glass half full and all o’ that shite.
Lastly, tell your father that he had better watch out for the shower rail that I accidentally broke. 🙂
