    YES!!! I was in Grant Park last night. What a night. I didn’t get laid, though, so I dodged the RU-486 bullet, lol. What a night!

    LOL again!! Congrats to Barack Obama, now he needs to get to work.

    And, “second”.

    Waiting 90 minutes in a line on a beautiful early November day was a cinch to cast the most important vote of my life.

    Wicked, B, just wicked. Keep up the great work.

  4. Preston

    Well, third.

    one great victory that may change the face of the world… to good finally. Congrats Obama!

    Talia — my boyfriend ALWAYS comes with me to wait in line for my morning after pills! He’s such a gentleman that way.

    yes I am doing treatment work around my reactive intolerance to the passing of 8.

    I’m trying to figure out the math on that one. When I look at the numbers of ballots cast in California, the votes for Prop 2, against Prop 4 and for Obama, ( http://vote.sos.ca.gov/ ), I’m puzzled how Prop 8 got enough votes to pass.

    Did people forget that a NO vote was the one we wanted on 8?

    Love is the answer, no matter what.

  8. Talia

    Does he run out to get them without you, though :D

    This is one of those things at which you react with a “…! HAAAAAAAAAAA!”

    Well done, Bernie.
    Although what the fuck, America?

    Study: Media coverage has favored Obama campaign
    Nov 3, 9:19 PM (ET)

    By DAVID BAUDER
    NEW YORK (AP) – John McCain supporters who believe they haven’t gotten a fair shake from the media during the Republican’s candidacy against Barack Obama have a new study to point to. Comments made by sources, voters, reporters and anchors that aired on ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts over the past two months reflected positively on Obama in 65 percent of cases, compared to 31 percent of cases with regards to McCain, according to the Center for Media and Public Affairs.
    ABC’s “World News” had more balance than NBC’s “Nightly News” or the “CBS Evening News,” the group said.
    Meanwhile, the first half of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” with Brit Hume showed more balance than any of the network broadcasters, although it was dominated by negative evaluations of both campaigns. The center didn’t evaluate programs on CNN or MSNBC.
    “For whatever reason, the media are portraying Barack Obama as a better choice for president than John McCain,” said Robert Lichter, a George Mason University professor and head of the center. “If you watch the evening news, you’d think you should vote for Obama.”
    The center analyzed 979 separate news stories shown between Aug. 23 and Oct. 24, and excluded evaluations based on the campaign horse race, including mention of how the candidates were doing in polls. For instance, when a voter was interviewed on CBS Oct. 14 saying he thought Obama brought a freshness to Washington, that was chalked up as a pro-Obama comment.
    When NBC’s Andrea Mitchell reported Oct. 1 that some conservatives say that Sarah Palin is not ready for prime-time, that’s marked in the negative column for McCain.
    ABC recorded 57 percent favorable comments toward the Democrats, and 42 percent positive for the Republicans. NBC had 56 percent positive for the Democrats, 16 percent for the Republicans. CBS had 73 percent positive (Obama), versus 31 percent (McCain).
    Hume’s telecast had 39 percent favorable comments for McCain and 28 percent positive for the Democratic ticket.
    It was the second study in two weeks to remark upon negative coverage for the McCain-Palin ticket. The Project for Excellence in Journalism concluded last week that McCain’s coverage has been overwhelmingly negative since the conventions ended, while Obama’s has been more mixed.
    Meanwhile, another survey issued Friday by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press showed that television continues to be Americans’ main source for campaign news, particularly the cable news networks.
    But there were clear partisan differences in where people turned.
    For instance, of the people who said they got most of their campaign news from Fox News Channel, 52 percent identified themselves as Republican, 17 percent as Democrats and 30 percent as independents, the Pew center said.
    MSNBC viewers interested in campaign news identified themselves at 11 percent Republican, 50 percent Democratic and 36 percent independent. The breakdown for CNN: 13 percent Republican, 45 percent Democrat, 38 percent independent.
    The study was based on a survey of 2,011 people taken Oct. 17-20 and 24-27. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percent.

    I would like to officially thank “A.M.” talk radio, Fox News Channel, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Bill O’Reilly. For giving the American People their first President, that is for the people and by the people. Thank you guys, You all rock! Keep up the good work!!!!

  12. Eileen

    Third world president for a third world country. Congrats!

  13. Thomas

    I have to agree with Kousin, thanks to small minded drivel artist, like the ENTIRE Fox News Channel, Bill O’Reilly(I traded in my sheet and hood for a suit and tie) for giving america the “cold water” it needed. People woke up and made an informed decision, not one based in fear and ignorance. Republicans love taking trips to “what if ville”, the problem is, that its a one way trip.

    Thomas, it is nice to see how tolerant and accepting you are. You have so much love for everyone. May your intelligence serve you well.

  17. Piper

    Pissed in America ~ Thank you for the wonderful example of how NOT to be ignorant. It’s good to see that hatred and bigotry are still alive and kicking in our nation. And ya know, it probably feels great to think that everybody else is suffering from a mass delusion. I’m sure that it makes life much easier to live. Best of luck with that.

    Oh…. and by the way…

    If you are going to slam millions of people for their ignorance, it’s probably a good idea to check out the correct grammar with which to do so. Just a bit of friendly advice.

  18. Jake

    Spoken like a true narrow minded redneck bigot, pissed. Be careful when you laugh your ass off, since that is what you are. Because when you do, you will dissappear. Obama is an educated, well informed, cool headed man, who I believe will be a wonderful president. Apparantly, you can’t see past skin color to judge by qualifications, education, and level headed judgementability to see the content of character in a man who happens to be biracial, and so is a part of us all. Thank God we are getting a rest from you people. And maybe we will be able to recognize our country again.

    Why is it that if you happen to be an Independent or especially a Republican you are a racist?? Why is it that if you work hard at your own business and experience success financially, you are somehow keeping someone down?? Why is it that if you are a man and you are unemployed you are a bum and if you are a woman and you are unemployed, you are a housewife?? The bottom line is simply this…we all have a responsibility to seek gainful employment and take care of our own business. It shouldn’t be my problem if someone can not take care of their own business. There is an overwhelming sense of entitlement in this country. Nobody owes you squat unless you earn it yourself–period. That is the fundamental difference between liberals and converatives. Unfortunately for those of us that bust our butt and do our best for our families, we will be even more overwhelmed by taking care of those that would rather “ride the wave” than man up and handle their own business. I truly feel bad for all of you who can’t figure this out. It is comical to hear you all slam Fox too. I am an Independent and try to be fair in my assessments and the only place I could find a non-partison voice was on Fox. Well, I wish you all the best and hope that your “rainy day fund” will last through the storm. You will certainly need it.

    Jake, I believe your last comment was the only one that made any sense. I live in the UK and was watching the election at 4 in the morning and that night I actually wished I was an American, what Obama has done is unbelievable, but he didnt win the election it was the majority of the USA who wanted change. The sad thing is, this morning I walked into work, and all over our papers its saying how Obama wont make it to the White House in January because he will probably be assassinated before then, what a load of bol*ocks, land of the free indeed!?! These are still sad times for America

  21. John

    As a McCain supporter I am obviously torn at the idea of Obama as president. As an American, and as a member of the military, I’m obligated to show him the respect he deserves for being elected. I hope that he can come through this and make a real difference in the direction of our country, but I am skeptical. I feel that although it’s enlightening to see so many people finally vote, that a mass of uninformed voters might have swayed this election more than people want to admit. I don’t feel Obama has the experience necessary to run the country, and I completely agree with Chad about the individual’s responsibility to make something for himself and to take care of his family and education. The extreme liberal views of Obama undermine the basis for which this country was built. Like I said though, I’m really hoping to be proven wrong.

  22. Piper

    As I don’t really agree with you on the experience issue(nor do I agree that everything is so black and white as to say that either people are well off or they can stuff it), I do appreciate that there are non-Obama supporters that are willing to hear things out and give him a chance. Thanks, John. It’s good to hear that there are still decently reasonable people out there. ^^

    I saw the don’t vote campaign and the ad is not meant to ofnfed, its saying if everything is ok then why is the noose and mentioning lynching like Bill O’Riley did to Michelle Obama, still relevant and gas prices the way it is to the point we will make our own soldiers, U.S. citizens die in a war over oil. The president is the commander in chief and makes many important decisions like Chanel said. Its a reason why when Clinton was in office we were better than when Bush was in office, hint the president and vice president.
