I've finished the rough draft of my paper just a little while ago. Thank goodness... because the results are all totally in for Florida and most of the news for my state isn't particularly good.
I'll think about that later though because I have to be getting up for school in less than 8 hours and I'd like *some* sleep tonight. Thank G-d for "The Daily Show and The Colbert Report Presents: Indecision 2006 Midterm Midtacular" on Comedy Central. It helps me laugh about these things so I don't cry.
This is excellent news about the US House. Sent up a prayer of thanks for that one, and for the defeat of the Anti-Choice Amendment in South Dakota. I'm trying to concentrate on these small mercies... which are really not small mercies. They are, in fact, great victories.
A woman - Nancy Pelosi - is now third in line for the Presidency... Can we impeach them now? :D
I would have preferred to have more responsive representation from our state, however.
But I'm looking forward to the rude letters I will be getting back from Rhonda Storms. The she-devil sent a very rude letter to the cantor of our synagogue two years ago in response to a letter our cantor sent to her in the capacity of a religious leader in the community. It was in fact so rude that our rabbi told us he could not repeat what Ms. Storms had said because it was just so bad. Perhaps I should have campaigned against her more strongly than I did, but I wasn't in her district and I was concentrating on people who were.
I think it's very interesting that it's probably going to come down to provisional ballots and automatic recounts in as many as three states for control of the Senate. I believe CNN announced that one of those contested states has stopped counting votes for the night. They will finish the count sometime tomorrow. I pray that Democrats win all three. If Republicans win even one of these contested seats, that's all she wrote for the Democrat's chances.
I pray for good change and mercy for us all. May we be delivered from evil and prosper in the next two years.
