Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

God, I Feel So Strong

The song’s called Hello, Hooray; it’s a goody and maybe tonight deserves a little big of hoopla. Maybe tonight’s the night the wave began to roll back. Maybe not, but who can tell the future?

If you’re getting your news from me–AND YOU FUCKING SHOULDN’T–here’s how it stands:

  • Democratic wins in the Virginia and New Jersey (FUCKING A RIGHT) gubernatorial races.
  • Dems take back the VA House of Delegates, including seating the nation’s first transgender politician.
  • A ballot measure to expand Medicaid passed by huge numbers in Maine.

Also, Bill DiBlasio was reelected Mayor of New York City, but fuck that over-tall goober.

    Democrats now control the Washington State Senate, and with it, the entire west coast.

      I spend a lot of time on political web sites (journalism, opinion, blogs), and I have to cavil in two small ways. First, Alaska could (should) be considered part of the “west coast,” given how much the Pacific influences it – legislative houses not controlled by Ds. Second, I haven’t met whoever it was/is, but I reading that this is the first out-before-being-elected transgender state legislator. It’s still great that a villain was replaced by a hero (my interpretation of that VA race).
