So that’s that



My phone has fallen silent this morning. After the last few months in a battleground state, it’s finally peaceful. I’ve a backlog of political mailings to burn in the woodstove.

I, for one, am relieved this election is not a repeat of the Bush/Gore fiasco. At least we have a winner and it’s over.

The local elections were kind of weird for me. All my favorite candidates were eliminated in the primaries. In the general election, it was second choices against people I hated. My second choices did fairly well, so it could have been worse.

It looks like New Hampshire swung on woman’s issues, and women politicians. We now have a woman governor and two new female congress people.

The show’s over folks. Time to get back to work.

  2. Now we get to kick back and watch the collapse in overdrive. Gonna be a whole bunch of "I told you sos" coming to pass in short order, methinks.

  3. At least now (unlike in 2000) I won't have the disappointment of a Republican president being blamed for the problems a Democratic one created. Quite frankly, I think if Gore had won in 2000, the recession of 2001 would have been much worse with little recovery, so by 2009 we would have likely been in about the same place economically, just without the up and down.

    1. We'll never know for sure where we'd be right now, but it's interesting to speculate.
