He Who Laughs Wednesday Morning Laughs Loudest

I had the strangest dream last was election day and things kept happening the way I wanted them to. Menendez in New Jersey. Casey in Pennsy (and I was so sad that Rick Santorum didn't have his dead fetus on the dias with him when he conceded). Dems picking up House seats all across the country, even knocking off Richard Pombo here in CA. Then Joltin' Joe Lieberman lumbered into my dream and I woke up.

OK, you can't have everything, but as a stop on the way to everything, it feels pretty good this morning. Rove isn't a genius. The worries about poorly fuctioning voting machines is on the elephant's foot this time.

And at our house we had 20 dedicated folks show up with their cell phones and place over 1200 calls into Arizona 5 thanks to MoveOn. That district was represented by J.D. Hayworth, who TBogg refers to as America's Stupidest Congressman. But not for long, as we were a part of having him go down to defeat! Congratulations Harry Mitchell. Please make your devoted if non-voting fans in Santa Barbara proud. It certainly won't take much to beat Hayworth's abysmal voting record.

And as an aside, I'd swear when I snuck out of the house to grab some dinner around 6 pm that gas prices had already begun to inch up. You know the Dems will get blamed for that.

Our gas prices never really went down, but then Austin trends blue so there weren't many votes to buy around here.

Santa Barbara trends blue too, but we also probably have the most expensive gas in the continental US. So, don't feel bad, we probably are still paying more, way more.

Yes, what a sigh of relief, now that the election has turned out so positively!
Funny line about the gas prices, by the way :)
