November Challenge - Day Seven

I saw this picture on msnbc.com this morning and it amused the hell out of me.

I'm very happy to see the loud outcry at the results of California's Proposition 8. This is just the beginning of what's going to be a very long battle. I have to say that I'm not feeling very hopeful that the outcome is going to be something positive, though. I'm not sure if it's the pessimist in me or the realist that thinks this. What I mean is we may have elected Barack Obama to the Presidency, but we are not a nation of forward thinkers. We are a nation of ignorant idiots who live in fear of our own shadows. Just witness all the hate speak circulating about the President Elect right now. If I'm told one more time how he's a sleeper cell agent or the Anti-Christ or that he won the election by using his evil powers of mass hypnotism (it's true. It's been documented in a sixty page report done by top scientists. A woman Ken works with said so. She also said that he has his temple in the park where he gave his speech on Tuesday. The temple has already been dismantled to throw people off the trail of him but just before he bombs the White House, it's going to be reconstructed and that's where he's going to rule from), I'm going to bust. While my faith in humanity got a boost this week, I can't really say that it's very high.

I heard some things about him on This American Life today that I hadn't heard before. He's gay. He's not really an American. There's one more that I can't remember. The point of the story was interviewing folks who weren't going to vote for him about their reasons why. As if there's any gay black men. Puh-leeze. That's the most ridiculous thing ever.

It's hard to stay positive when you get a sock in the gut. We'll keep pushing it in CA and hopefully other states will follow suit.
