After the Fall

As usual Red State Update have the clearest outlook on the political situation.

Here in Minnesota we are in the midst of a recount. DFL senatorial candidate Al Franken lost to Norm Coleman by such a small margin they have to count the ballots all over again. Last night they were saying Coleman was ahead by 725 votes; by this afternoon that lead had shrunk to around 300. Maybe this will teach Coleman to wuss out on things like the bailout.

Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann, on the other hand, managed to keep her seat, despite being sneered at on air by MSNBC's pudgy blond anchorman and despite having the RNC pull her television ad money. Bachmann, you will recall, voted against the bailout. You go, girl!

And a chorus of yippees to the voters of California, who flipped off the courts who had flipped off them and made damn sure marriage means "between a man and a woman." Rock on, sane people.

My McCain sign disappeared for good today. But this time it was blown away by a powerful gust of wind. Weird, huh?
