I'm So Proud of Us

I really am.

Americans believed Joe Biden when he said that this was a battle for the soul of America.  

Americans stood up to a Supreme Court which obviously does not represent the will of the people.

Young people who grew up with Active Shooter Drills used their power to elect gun safety legislators.

And Mark Finchem, the insurrectionist election denying Trump acolyte, was the only clear cut loser among all the MAGA Republicans running for state wide executive offices.  It seems that most Arizona voters want their votes to be counted and certified the old fashioned way - honestly, reflecting the will of the voters and not that of the Secretary of State.

We still don't know who will be our Governor or our Representative; they're still counting.  And counting is what they should be doing.  They are verifying and curing and counting.... hundreds of thousands of mail in ballots which dropped off on Election Day.... and it's so much fun listening to the talking heads positing this that and the other about who those voters might be.

Mark Kelly won.  In his email after the announcement, he noted contributions from all 50 states.  

I'm so proud of Americans.  We're really seeing beyond the craziness.  We voted to save our democracy.

Michael Beschloss said, on MSNBC, that we were watching history being made.  He called this one of the 3 most consequential elections in our history.  

I'm kinda tired of being in the midst in that ancient proverb:  May you live in interesting times.  I'm ready for a little bit of boring right now.


  1. I'm still getting lots of email from the Warnock campaign. His race and hopefully his victory are important, but that's up to Georgia. Leave me alone now.
    I too am pleased that we turned away many of the liars and election deniers.

    1. I know. Fatigue is competing with all these requests to turn Georgia. I will write postcards, but I spent my money on Mark Kelly this year.


Talk back to me! Word Verification is gone!
