Election Day 2008 - Thoughts and Reports

Around Midnite, I saw Justin hopped on the stage and sang "Happy" song. I needed a tissue during Obama's speech, and during this song, I thought I needed a towel.
I'm so excited that finally people in all over the world can focus on the real beauty of the U.S. again without the disturbance of Bush's shadow.

I am still pinching myself to see if this is all true (seems like it could be a very long dream). Huzzah and WERK!

Not sure if any other motherboarders were up on 125th tuesday night, but it was a giant street party like i have never seen before. Amazing and peaceful w lots of tears.

Thank you for all the pictures, sherry vine looks OVAH Smile hope thats the last of ms. pallin we have to see - buh-bye Big Grin
I agree Princess. After living in a " gay" town for the past 8 years where gays walk openly hand and hand and can marry legally, I still witness blatant acts of racism on a daily basis. Gays as a whole have not addressed nor overcome their own narrow mindedness regarding race or opposite sex hatred. For the most part it seems that the majority of people in this day and age have grown very much in such matters but there are still too many out there that need to address their inner racism. Perhaps President Obama will encourage this last step towards awareness.

Meanwhile it disturbs me greatly that a large portion of the African American community could even consider hating gay people and voting away their rights after all that they themselves have faced in this country. It boggles the mind.

i hear you bobby, but the ONLY response is compassion, outreach and continued efforts to return this issue to the courts.
we need to be like p.e. obama and rise above it while we work within the system.
gays must learn that you can't fight hatred & ignorance with more of the same.
gays are a strange minority - among our more stellar virtues, we also we embrace such extremes of hysterical victimhood with undreamt-of entitlement and imperiousness.
honey, i have gay fatigue!
