Thankfully, the people I know are overwhelmingly happy with the results and stuff, so I haven't had to come across much of that obnoxiousness.
The sad thing is this gentleman wasn't trying to be obnoxious. He really believes we're doomed. Still there is something rather creepy about anyone, especially an old friend saying "you and your children will pay for this." Almost sounds/felt like a threat. It reminded me for all the world of an older minister I knew in college who had been good friends to my wife and I when we were dating. When he found out we were getting married he shook his head ruefully and said "Well, I suppose as long as you don't have children. . ." (We are an interracial couple).

It hurt, but we moved on.

Yeah. His friends who came to reply were wonderful and eloquent in their "shame on you" responses.

All right, off to bed. Good night, all.

Edit: Oh, right - Obama hasn't spoken yet. I'm giving him 15 more minutes.

Even Better than the Real Thing is playing in the background at the Obama rally right now, if anyone is listening closely

Sounds like Bruce on this end. I guess he's about to come on ....

Edit: No, I'm deaf. I hear Bono now.

Jeb isn't entirely bad...as of now, in terms of social issues. Supports gay couples adopting children, together, which is big. Don't think he supports marriage, but still better than anyone from the soon to be former tea party.

No COBL. I'm retroactively changing my vote to Romney.

I have never been able to even begin to understand a parent not being accepting in these sorts of situations. It's your child, for Christ's sakes. People like that need to get over themselves.

That poor guy.

$10 says Fox dings Obama for not mentioning Romney at the start of his speech as Romney did for him.

It's not ideal, but yes it's not bad. Could be worse.

Jeb wasn't a terrible Governor really, either.

Dunno, as of right now though we've got a good three years before any of that's relevant anyways. Hope for the best until then.
