Hello from Winthrop Maine,...

...where we became one of the first states to VOTE in favor of marriage equality!

I'm a straight white 57 year old man. My wife and I were proud and happy to stand with our LGBT friends and allies as Maine voted 53% in favor of equal rights for all.

I mention my age because I lived through the civil rights movement and the "Women's Lib" movement. I've never seen something become so accepted so fast as LGBT rights and marriage.

To illustrate my point, do you remember that as recently as March of 2005 the republicans, fundies and those whove become the teabaggers were having a serious shit fit over the notion of a lesbian saying hello to a cartoon bunny?

If ANYONE tried that today they'd probably be laughed out of the room and rightfully so.

So, republicans, homophobes and teabaggers, please accept my sincere desire that you go SUCK IT!!!!!

BTW, Congrats, Senator-elect Baldwin!

That's my 2 cents, and quite possibly overpriced at that!


Has Florida been called yet?

If the Prez gets Florida, will the media start calling it a blue state> After all, it will have voted for Clinton in 96, Gore in 00, kerry in 04 (even though it was stolen those times) and the Prez twice.


I just posted this on Facebook.

Just to give you an idea of how often I use Facebook, I found out about my high school class's October 2009 reunion in August of 2010.

Here's my fresh FB post, though:

President Obama re-elected comfortably.
Maine and 3 other states approve same sex marriage
Elizabeth Warren wins
Tammy Baldwin wins
pro-rape republicans lose
karl rove and donald trump make asses out of themselves (again).

Message to teabaggers everywhere: SUCK IT!

Just my post-election 2 cents and quite possibly overpriced at that!


My family and I thank you Mr. President.

Not counting all of your accomplishments in your first term and what you'll do in your second term, I have a very personal reason for thanking you.

I am so grateful to you for being a man that I can point out to my son and say "here is a leader and someone that you can emulate with pride". Thank you for being a wonderful role model for my precious 12 year old son.

When I was a boy and I misbehaved, my mother would ask "What would President Kennedy say"?

I can finally look to a President and say something similar to my precious young man.

My family and I will mwke an exchange with you for the next four years. If you'll accept our gratitude, we'll have your back.



Gee, willard is choosing to end this campaign by acting like a dick.

I'm shocked. Shocked I tell you, SHOCKED!

A spoiled brat pathological liar of a greedy plutocrat is choosing to go out acting just like the walking turd that he is. WOW, what a stunner!


Has Oregon been called yet?



HOOOOORAYYYY Elizabeth!!!!!

Welcome to the United States Senate!!!


Make your fearless forecast for Tuesday!

For the arbitrary sake of this poll, under 1% is a nailbiter, 1% but up to 4% is close, 4% but under 10% is a comfortable margin and 10% or more is a landslide.

I think that it'll be President Obama comfortably. That's my 2 cents and quite possibly overpriced at that!


On election night, the magic number for President Obama will be 192.

If he's gained 192 Electoral Votes before the west coast states have closed, he's IN.

He will win CA (55), WA (12), OR (7) & HI (4) for a total of 78. If he has 192 before the West Coast closes, Than 192 + 78 = 270.

In my opinion, he will be well over 192 at that time. I expect President Obama to wind up with well over 300 Electoral Votes. He SHOULD be well over 400, but there are too many too red/teabagger states.

That's my 2 cents, and quite possibly overpriced at that!


Jill Biden

I just want to take a moment before the frenzy of a last weekend of the neverending campaign and (UGH) the start of campign '16 to say that I think that Mrs. Biden is the most wonderful, elegant, intelligent, charming and underappreciated member of the Obama/Biden team. I have rarely seen such a classy gentlewoman in public life.

How about we all give a brief moment of our appreciation to the lovely lady who will (Please God) be one heartbeat away from being First Lady until January 20, 2017.

That's my 2 cents, and quite possibly overpriced at that (but I don't really think so this time)!
