What were they thinking?

So maybe I won't be starved of political fodder after all.

What the hell is up with Alaska? Ted Stevens is going to get re-elected?! Sure, let's vote for the man just found guilty of 7 felonies and abusing his office for personal gain. Where do those eastern folk get off telling us in the great frontier who we can have in office. Coming up next...Ted Stevens resigning (if he has any decency left) and yet another election to fill his seat.

I'm sorry for people in California, Arizona, Florida, and Arkansas. It looks like a slim majority in CA and AZ and just over the necessary 60% in FL may have approved enshrining discrimination into the state constitutions with the passing of bans on same-sex marriage. Plus, Arkansas just made it illegal for gay couples to adopt. Lovely. It looks like even with Obama's election, we still have a long way to go before all men (and women) are created equal.
