Now THAT's a Mandate

Last week it was Referendum C here in Colorado. This week, it's just about every other issue and candidate across the country.

In Dover, PA, the fundie Republican schoolboard that was backing Intelligent Design was ousted in favor of Dems. Every single one. 8 for 8.

In CA, all four of the Gropinator's referenda were shot down.

Maine won't discriminate.

A Dem who supported Bush in 2004 was run out of town on a rail.

Virginia has a new Dem governor.

I hope the moderates have gotten the message. We don't want fundie, rightwing extremism. We don't want government drowned in a bathtub. We don't want kooky ideologues who are not part of the reality-based community.

At very least, this doesn't bode well for Dick Cheney getting Congress to let him sit on an Iraqi's face until he stops squirming.
