Election comment

Well, Issue 3 passed--Ohioans behaved like stupid, short-sighted assholes. As expected. When you live in a society this diseased, it's hard to be too surprised.

Of course, that's much less bad than the fact that hate won out in Maine. I know that the demographics are on our side and that with time justice will prevail (assuming we don't wipe ourselves out first), but that doesn't make the transient victories of lying, demagoguing hatemongerers any more palatable. It is simply beyond grotesque that, of all groups, gays' rights are only temporary, and can just be rescinded if you can get enough quivering, dimwitted sacks of shit scared enough. As has been pointed out many times, if AA civil rights had been left up to The People, they would've been pushed back a good twenty years anyway. Nauseating.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: there are times when, ambivalent atheist that I am, I really wish America had actual Christian values.

At least NY-23 provided some much-needed comic relief.
