OK the elections are past. I feel bad for the gay bashing in a few states, but then again I feel even worse about the uneducated faith based morality that grips my own state. I live in a small little Democrat stronghold where 70% of the population is registered as Democrats.
After eight years of Bush, with the highest unemployment rates in the state, with half the average income of the next largest county... There is not one single elected County official that is not a Democrat and our elections end in the Primary because Republicans no longer even bother to run for an office. And in spite of all this tradition... John McCain won big in my County.
On the other hand my people. My fellow Okies would never even consider gay marriage and in fact they don't really consider kicking a homo's ass should be called a "hate crime." That's what good old boys do.
The new chick at work told me today her friends were all upset Obama was going to take their guns away. When the hell did he ever say that? And why is she hanging out with those freakin rednecks?
Oh well... it is time to put politics behind us and turn our thoughts and concentration to what lies in the future. Christmas shopping!
