The Great Divide

I love my husband. Very much, in fact. We are so alike on so many fronts, and we share (almost) the same values. However, there is one subject that is strictly taboo in our house, and you guessed it, it’s politics. We have diametrically opposing views on all manner of political issues, and I would imagine that he’s not having a very good day today. In fact, it’s proabably best that he is out of town, because, even though I miss him, I don’t think he would appreciate the victory dance I did around the house. Twice (once for the election results, and once for Rumsfeld). And even though I’m not Nancy Pelosi’s biggest fan, I am eager to see if she truly can work closely with the President. I certainly hope she can, becuase it’s pretty frickin’ cool that we will have a female Speaker.
I don’t typically discuss my views publicly, because, quite frankly, I don’t take kindly to the crazy people who would most likely enjoy seeing me burn, but I think it’s important to make note of the power shift this election year. REGARDLESS of your political affiliation, we as Americans got to bear witness to true democracy in action. We used our voices, we exercised our privilege, and our voices were heard. It may not have been the result that you personally (cough)kevin(/cough) wanted, but there is nothing that inspires patriotism like the voice of the people turning the tide.

    I am having a bad day as well! However, I will give credit where credit is do. The Dem’s were able to do something they have not been able to do for a while….get on the same page and pull off an election. As much as I don’t like the results,it still proves that we live in a great country!Thank God KINKY did not win!!!!!!!

    You still owe me $20, since you thought he wouldn’t even make it on the ballot.
