Having had a few days to reflect on the election results, I have to say I've got such a strong sense of relief at how things turned out. My only real disappointment was the passing of Proposition 8 in California.

The scariest thing about this election for me was Sarah Palin and all of the right-wing nutjobs who came out of the woodwork in support of her. (For the record, let me say that I'm not really fond of left-wing nutjobs either.) She was interesting to watch, but I'm going to cross my fingers that we've seen the last of her on the national stage.

Even if I'm not a raving Obamaniac, it was still heartening to have gone and voted for him and to discover that us Americans finally had a collective "Network" moment where the majority of us shouted, "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!"

LOL Guess I'm going to have to watch that movie now. Justin has had it in the queue for over a year, but has yet to convince me of its powers. Viva la revolution!

Snotty: Bryn forced me to watch it against my wishes. I still don't know that I really liked it, but it was a good 1970s movie. Whatever that means.

Franco: I saw that picture and KNEW that I would have to write something just so I could use it!
