Fourty-five minutes after election day; mission report:

C'mon Virginia: you're down to absentee ballots? Seriously? For Webb vs. Allen?!

For my own state, only one of my d00ds won, but that isn't too suprising, considering Alaska. How did you guys fare?

Speaking as someone close enough to Virginia to get their political ads, there's a lovely campaign going on that basically calls Webb a mysoginistic asshole. So...yeah, that could explain part of it. Not sure about my (NC) state's results, haven't checked. But I DID vote!

Oh, well, that helps clear things up a little bit. So people feel like they're caught between two good ol' boys: the racist ass or the sexist ass. This is my public apology to the people of Virginia: this is a lot more complicated than I took it for.

Apparently, Webb made comments to the effect that women are only in the military to meet men, or at least the ads say he did. Yay choices in Virginia. :-P
