whoooooooooo Donkeys!

The AP has called VA for Webb. The Dems have taken both houses. Rummy's out. Thank you America, you've finally pulled your head out of you ass (albeit barely). Now STOP VOTING FOR AMENDMENTS AGAINST GAY MARRIAGE DAMMIT!!

3rd party dreams or derailers

You want to know what frustrates and conflicts me? This:

Allen (R)
1,006,876 50%
Webb (D)
982,054 49%
Parker (I)
22,107 1%

This is with 80% reporting in VA. Look at that Independant vote. Add it to Webb's votes. Match that up with Allen's. I get frustrated because I beleive strongly in the need for a viable third party in the US, but I think I believe more strongly in making a statement against leadership like Allen's. I don't know, I'd like to be an idealist but things like this bring out the realist in me. A revolutionary I'm not, perhaps. Maybe only in my dreams.

p.s. - yes, I realize these #s are fairly insignificant right now wrt final outcome =)

Don't use the word if you have to make one up.

Message Board Post from Anon (regarding the movie Borat):
"I found it slightly humorous, but then very offensive. I walked out! I'm not too old to appreciate humor and satirism. But this went over the line in my opinion. I just couldn't laugh and feel comfortable laughing. "

Personally, I am offended by your use of the word "satirism". But maybe that's just me. Also I prefer if you spell humor with a "u". humour. It's just prettier.
