- So what do you all think of the result? Barring a miracle in Ohio,
Bush has won an electoral and popular majority. How long will it take
for Ohio to be decided? How will the Senate be different without
Daschle, but with Salazar, Obama, and other new members? Will the
country remain this polarized throughout the next four years? And who
might get nominated in 2008?
- Gay marriage defeats John Kerry. Finally, I learned how irrelevant
issues and policies are in American politics and how shallow the
American people can be.
- I think we all are upset. And I am sure we have very strong words
that we have voiced with those around us.
Ram you are right. But I am thankful, (and I put you and Greg in my
thoughts) and bet we are at least happy that when it comes to the
culture war we are on the side that reads newspapers, follows the
issues, thinks with rational and logical processes. The right wing
nut-jobs who pushed the gay marriage issue on the ballots and drove
the vote totals throughout the country are devoid of rational debate
on this issue.
Can you image the likes of Truman (blacks in the military) or JFK or
LBJ (voting rights) putting civil rights up to the voters?!
Gay people suffered a major loss last night that has end results we
can not even begin to measure this morning.
