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.

exactly. i can't even imagine not being supportive of my child's career decision, much less their sexuality. as long as my child is happy, i'll be happy for them. i can't imagine posting hateful comments on someone's fb page, especially my own flesh and blood's.

whether my kid is gay, straight, or bi, as long as they're happy, that's all that will matter.

That was beautiful. What an incredibly moving speech by President Obama. And as a bonus, done by 11pm PST.

Graves is now LEADING Bachmann by a little over 1000...not sure if pro-Bachmann precincts are the ones left though.

good lord. there's "unrest" on the ole miss campus. some are saying there's a riot, others are saying groups of all races (i guess there's some inuit and pacific islanders there too?) yelling at each other.

keep it klassy.

In 2004 George W Bush won with 286 EC votes.
or one state, the state of Ohio. (270 are required to win)

But any honest person would have to admit that Obama's 'so called' big win tonight is not as legit as W's 2008 win.

Goodnight.

Denver's different. People have been smoking pot in front of policemen in Denver for years.
