1. John McCain's concession speech reminded me that I used to like John McCain. He's recently swung so far to the right in an apparent attempt to woo the crazies that I had totally written him off as just another fundamentalist weirdo. But watching him speak last night, I remembered what I used to think about him. I used to believe that while we shared idealogical differences, McCain was a man of integrity who cared deeply about this country. I think I'm getting ready to believe that again. Especially if he can shed
2. Seriously??? It's thus far looking like Proposition 8, a ban on gay marriage, is winning? This is extremely disappointing.
3. I think the ballot measure I was most concerned about was Prop 5, an initiative that, "will reduce prison overcrowding, increase public safety, cut costs, expand drug treatment programs inside California's prisons, and start the state's first drug treatment program for at-risk youth." It upsets me deeply that it did not pass. California's prison system is pitiful and overcrowded and underfunded. This was common sense, and it would have helped.
4. Yes we did. If I had a "Proud to be an American" shirt, I would totally be rocking that shit today.
