Political fallout, aka letters to those involved  
Dear Kinky Friedman:

So, just out of curiosity, how does it feel to be the Ralph Nader of our gubenatorial election? Seriously, thank you so much for splitting the vote, thus ensuring four more years of Rick Perry. Really, sport, thanks a bunch. You promised if you lost to Perry that you would retire to a ranch and grumble. Do us all a favor; make that ranch happen in another state so you aren't tempted to fuck up the 2010 election.


Someone who was apparently more sick of Perry than you were


Dear voters in Arizona:

So, you seem to have voted down an anti-gay marriage referendum. Good on you.

On the other hand, you felt the need to declare your official language as "English." Interesting. I've never seen someone wear an asshat on only one side of his head, but you're managing it.


Someone who at least hates everyone equally


Dear Rick Santorum:

Bye, bitch. Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.


Someone who isn't a flaming evangelical nutjob like you


Dear voters of Pennsylvania:

Thank you.


Someone who is amazed you ever voted for that prick in the first place


Dear voters of Connecticut:

Idiots. Enjoy your Democrat In Name Only. Remember: you voted for him. He supports the war, so by implied consent, so do you.


Someone who wanted to support our troops by not getting them killed for nothing


Dear Nancy Pelosi:

Well, there you go. Now, I have one piece of advice for you:

Don't fuck it up. You've been bitching for the past six years or so about how things would be different if you guys hadn't been marginalized. Prove it. You've got a hard road ahead, fixing all the things the Rapebuplicans have done to this country. We'll understand if you have to do a little triage and tackle the worst offenses first. Do what needs doing and there'll probably be a nice bonus in two more years.


Someone who's just fucking tired of this nonsense

There were a few of those foolish anti-gay marriage measures that passed, but on the bright side, there were also a few anti-eminent domain abuse measures that passed as well, and a good anti-preferences measure in Michigan, too.

I'm an inveterate optimist; I like to focus on the positives, few though there may be. :-)

Of the eight anti-gay marriage ballots that went to the voters last night, six passed, one result is still out for counting at this time, and one was stricken down.

On that issue, common sense and liberty lost ground, as they often do on this subject. I'm honestly not surprised with those results. I don't see the masses in most states accepting gay marriage of their own accord. Gay marriage is going to be a situation just like interracial marriage was, wherein the courts are going to have to force the masses to accept a result whether they want to or not. You're obviously in a better position to tell me how the aftereffects of that are shaking out, several generations hence.

I agree that one day, though it may take decades, people will see domestic arrangements as private matters between or among consenting adults. Bigots don't go away, though, even after decades. We've had very few negative experiences, fortunately, but then again we've spent our entire married life within 20 miles of the Empire State Building, and it's a pretty cosmopolitan area.

Dear Trav,

Some of us never wanted Santorum. We are more than happy that this pink slip went through.
