The day after yesterday
- He won by a wide margin. "The greatest number of popular votes of any presidential candidate in history."
- The Republicans picked up more seats in the House. They'll control the new Senate, 55-44.
- Measures 33, 34 and 38 were all shot down by wide margins. Measure 36 and 37 passed.
- Despite being pandered to for months, the youth vote didn't show up at the polls.
OK, fine, the number of people under the age of 30 that voted went up from 18 to 21 million. Still, I didn't see any members of Eminem's black sweatshirt clad minions stomping around my neighborhood.
- Speaking of which, what were the DJs at KNRK talking about this afternoon? Not the election but how to change the radio stations of stolen cars in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
- Spotted on the back of a delivery truck in SW: "VIVA LA BUSH! YEAH, BABY!"
- Sheesh, it's enough to make a liberal want to relocate north. Oh wait, Canadian officials are already going on attempting to stop fleeing Democrats seeking asylum. Since that isn't an option, maybe this guy (see: "Exit this Roman shell") has the right idea.
- It's going to be a long four years. On the bright side, everyone will have plenty to gripe about. And I won't have to change the URL. Like 48% of America I'm in terrible mood right now but I guess my demeanor could be worse. See also: this and this (under "breaking news").
As I type this, protesters are gathering in Pioneer Square and riot cops are on the scene. According to feedback area on the Oregon Commentator's blog, earlier today demonstrators involved in the No on 36 campaign rolled around the UO campus while covered in fake blood and carrying crosses.
- Is the end nye? Sure.
