Last night we watched the election results roll in at the 21st amendment brewpub. There was much cheering and rejoicing when the westcoast polls closed and they immediately announced Obama as winner. There wasn’t much doubt in my mind that he wouldn’t win, but it was wonderful to see such a high voter turnout for such an important election, and to see him win by such a wide margin (TWICE the electoral votes).
But if all the young liberal kids finally came out to vote for Obama, it wasn’t enough in California. They passed Proposition 8, an amendment to the state constitution once again banning same-sex marriage in California. On the plus side they did just pass a $10 billion train from San Francisco to L.A. Maybe that’ll help spread our libral influence to all the curmudgonly folks down there who keep forcing their religious views on people they don’t know and will never meet.
