Ob USElectionCommentary

Yay Democratic House. Impeach, impeach, impeach.

Yay no Republican gains in major races.

Hope for tied Senate (still too close to call, last I checked).

Yay no California Prop 85 (mandatory waiting period and parental notification if minor daughter seeks abortion). Yay South Dakotans for voting down their anti-abortion initiative.

Mad about a bunch of "no gay marriage" amendments passing. (But yay Arizonans for defeating theirs!)

Pretty scared at the 71% yes vote on California's Prop 83 ("Sex offenders released from prison would be monitored with Global Positioning System (GPS) devices...for life. Registered sex offenders would not be allowed to reside within 2,000 feet of a school or park." [i.e., not in any urban areas whatsoever]). It just seems to me that the definition of "sex offender" could change awfully suddenly to include consensual behavior among adults.
