Good Morning

I know that it was an off-year and that very little was actually at stake, but damn did it feel good to read the news after yesterday's elections. To whit:

  • The Democrats won the governor races in New Jersey and Virginia;
  • The Democrats picked up seats in the VA state assembly;
  • A real Democrat handed the "Democrat" mayor of St. Paul, MN (who stupidly endorsed Bush last year) his ass by a 69% to 31% margin;
  • All eight of the right-wing nuts on the Dover, PA school board who insisted on putting "intelligent" design into the curriculum were sent home, and will hopefully receive the remedial education they desperately need;
  • Voters in Maine upheld a gay rights law; and
  • All four of Schwarzenegger's ballot initiatives in CA went down in flames.

Here's to hoping that this is a series of good omens for 2006.
