Posts like this are one reason why I will never get a political job.

My solution for the Lieberman thing, since the Democratic Caucus has failed to borrow Hillary Clinton's balls**?

Someone should be assigned to kick Lieberman in the nuts as hard as they can.

If they were to do that, I would feel like he at least had faced some consequence for campaigning in a nasty, religion- and foreigner-baiting way against the Democratic candidate. Taking away his chair, a plum saved for someone who acts as part of the caucus, would not have been "retribution," it would have been the correct consequence for not BEING part of the caucus in terms of the actions he was taking.

**Please note that this refers to an SNL sketch, not Clinton's actual vote, since she also supported Lieberman today.

My tired the work.

And yet I have just SO MUCH to do. *yawn*

(Typing "yawn" just made me yawn. Hmmmmmmm . . . .)

I can't be the only one who keeps having this thought.

Obama won, guys. *The election is over*. I know it has been almost a week, but it still seems unreal.

I thought of this in the car this morning and you are not allowed to smack for me saying it aloud.

Obama? Is in the process of creating his Barackracy as part of the transition.

Thank you very much. Tip your waitress.

There were fireworks in my neighborhood last night.

And I suspect we woke up the neighbors when we both yelled as MSNBC called Ohio for Obama. That was when we were sure it was over. As you have all seen, we have tried to make Veronica a part of this historic campaign at every turn. Last night was no exception. We woke her up so that she could watch Barack Hussein Obama give the speech in which he accepted the role of President-Elect of the United States.

She was confused. And she won't remember it. But she was there. This country isn't that far away from the shame of slavery, and it is even less far from the shame of segregation. Leaving aside all of the other (more important to governing) reasons why I am excited that Obama won, I am proud to be a citizen of the country that elected him.

We voted. I was--get this--voter #270 in my precinct.

Did you? It matters. And if you have voted, wear your sticker--I got stopped on the way to the train by a woman who was considering voting who was worried about the length of the wait. I think I managed to convince her to take the time.

****And a note for Fox News: I know my baby has an "I Voted" sticker. This is not a sign of voter fraud. Do not begin running special reports about voter fraud in Minnesota. Her little kitty also wore the sticker for a bit. Minnesota has also not started to allow stuffed animals to vote. Just in case you were confused. I know you find these things confusing.
