Watching Obama's victory speech with my mom (who normally votes rather conservatively), we simply cannot wait for November. Listening to him all those years ago at the DNC we all had an inkling we were seeing a president in the making, but now that he's so much closer, it's rather exhilarating. I've been waiting for this speech all month, like so many others, and now that it's here it seems a damn good reason to celebrate - and to get to work for the fight to come.

Gah

I should be reading. I should be doing work. Hell, I should be doing NaNo. But what am I doing? Hitting 'refresh' on CNN's site about every two second to watch as results come in.

And as pissy as I am the Colorado referenda, so far I'm cautiously optomistic about making the map a little more blue. Why, oh, why, can't I be secure in my knowledge and go to sleep?!

Ahhh, democracy-induced insomnia. Gotta love it.

Two measures on this year's Colorado ballot have prompted this long overdue rant. For those of you who don't know me in person or haven't yet guessed, I'm very liberal, and often jokingly refer to myself as a liberal of the "pinko commie bastard sort." So there's a lot of liberal anger behind the cut, and how that ties in with my faith, eccentric as it is. I know I have friends of a wide range of ideologies-beliefs, and I hope this doesn't offend or anger anyone on the other end of the spectrum. It might be better not to click.
