I'm really looking forward to not having to feel like I need to keep one eye on our government every single moment of every single day. I can really use that brain space back.

Sigh. I've been waiting and waiting and so scared it wouldn't happen. But it did. We may actually have a chance at redeeming ourselves as a country. Wouldn't that be a trip?

And what I like?

The West Coast put it over the top, baby!!

This makes up for 1980. 1988. 2000. 2004.

I got teary.

Oh, this feels so damned good. So damned right. Like it hasn't felt since 1980.

I had no say in it, but well and truly enough of you got it right. Thank you.

(Although it looks like Proposition 8 and some of the other odious ballot measures in various states are going to get passed...)

I was going to say: the nightmare is over unless you're queer, in which case you're still a second class citizen. This election is a good start, but we've got a long road ahead of us.

Sadly, there's still a couple more months of Bush as President. But we're definitely waking up.
