Well shit. It wasn't just a small reorganization in the House, this was Martha Stewart on Meth. We're talking cleaning like you see for OCD Jews before Passover. It's pretty outstanding. Apparently all it takes is 6 years of ferocious, unrepentingly corrupt leadership with a horrifically mismanaged war and a constant desecration of the basic values and rules that govern civil society for folks to get upset. But, you know, better late than never.
Sadly, the races with which I had any personal connection whatsover went Republican. Made calls for Christine Jennings through the DCCC...she lost. Rooted on Judy Dutcher (for whom I worked in 2002, and whom I know a little, and like a lot) and Mark Hatch--lost to Pawlenty. Tony Knowles in Alaska, for whom Jess and several friends worked in 04, lost. Mary Jo Kilroy for whom Jesseca bused out to Ohio, slept but 8 hours in 4 days and basically sweated blood--lost. I think the key is that I should try and make calls for Jeb Bush, or John McCain.
You know how some actors are refered to as box-office poison for their ability to kill an otherwise profitable movie. I'm ballot-box poison. My support is a sign for other voters to steer clear of a candidate. Oh well.
PS. In unrelated but similarly important news of change: Brittany Spears is getting rid of K-Fed. I'd like to be the first to attempt this awful joke... I guess She Was K-Fed Up.
