  1. Trying to prevent socialist policies from intruding into American government, perhaps? 😀

  2. Well, yes: Obama should do that very effectively – he’s a good solid conservative, after all.

    Even so, his brand of conservatism/right-wing Christianity will come as a relief after the mindless fascism of the Bush regime.

  3. Ah-ha – a point on which we mostly agree! 😀

    Though I don’t classify Obama as a conservative, I’m all for giving the boot to Bush; in fact, I wish the boot came earlier and with a big fat metal toed impeachment, personally. I don’t know who did, but I certainly didn’ vote for the guy!

  4. Yay!

    Although Prop 8 makes me so angry, it’s tainting the joy.

  5. I’m with lowly–the anti-gay ballot measures have tempered my enthusiasm just a little. But still, yay.

  6. Lowly – Yeah, the news about the Prop 8 passing (and two other anti-marriage and one anti-adoption amendment, in Florida, Arkansas, and Oklahoma) really tainted the joy of Obama’s win.

    And I have all sorts of cynical thoughts about what Obama will and will not aim to get done in the next 4 years (unless electoral reform is on his list, then we can hope for 8).

    Still. Whatever comes, the threat of a McSame/Palin Presidency is gone. It appears that even a homophobic Mormon *waves at HusbandJohn* voted for Obama, so that’s pretty cool.

    I have hope. I was very afraid McSame was going to get into the White House and kill it.

  7. By the way, Jesurgislac, I’m sure you have probably already been told this, but I really miss your commentary on Slacktivist. You were one of my favorite parts of that community. I’ve actually delurked and started getting into some of the threads there because I feel like the sort of arguments you usually voice are left out of the debate.

    So. Just a geeky fangirl comment. 🙂

  8. Aw, thanks, Caroline. *grins* Geeky fangirls always welcome!

    I’ve actually delurked and started getting into some of the threads there because I feel like the sort of arguments you usually voice are left out of the debate.

    Well, the criticism that was launched against me – that all the other regulars seemed to agree with – was that I had the effect of silencing debate. That was the final trigger for leaving, though once I’d done it, I’m afraid I did conclude it was past time I’d quit. 😉 And if my leaving has meant you delurk there and join in, well… I’d say that’s a plus. I really would.
