The first hurrah

And hopefully not the last, even though election results in my state were not encouraging...at least Obama/Biden won.  

We are still stuck with a  US Senator who supports torture, opposed the GI Bill for this war's veterans, opposes expanded benefits for disabled veterans, opposes any expansion (or even minimally sufficient funding) for CHIP, the health care program for poor children.   He's all about making energy companies richer, lowering taxes for the rich, and claiming that lower taxes mean more jobs, in the face of the evidence.   Oh, yeah, and continuing the land war in Asia without instituting a draft.  

Other states are now stuck with new "initiatives" proposed and funded by religious bigots.  

But at least we got one thing right.
