Fetch, piggy

| Posted on in politics

While it’s good to finally win a few, there were some disappointing losses last night. California’s Proposition 8 will most likely pass, along with other similar measures that passed in Florida and Arizona, that will negate and prevent the state-sanctioned monogamy of many Americans. Al Franken will probably still lose in Minnesota after his recount. Ted Stevens looks like he’s going to win in Alaska. We didn’t quite gain enough seats to get to the supermajority in the Senate.

Having said all of this, there were several very notable victories last night. I’ve been becoming less and less proud to be an American over the course of the last eight years, but over the course of 24 hours I’m realizing that I can start to believe in this country again.
