Thank You America!

November 5, 2008

Thank you, thank you, thank you.  This is the first time since I’ve been able to vote that an election has worked out the way I always imagined they were meant to.  There was a clean win, and for the most part common sense reigned (I’m looking at you Alaska, how can so many vote for a man found guilty of multiple ethics violations).  Oh and in Mass., people overwhelmingly rejected the potentially disasterous question 1.

But for a little while, all is right with the world.

Sarah Palin

September 3, 2008

I don’t usually post twice at once, and I’ve been avoiding politics thus far (although I am from Massachusetts so my own views should be pretty much a given), but I have to.  Both Tame the Web and the LibrarianInBlack have picked up on a quote from a Time report on Sarah Palin in which, during her time as Mayor, she asked the town librarian to ban a number of books.  Furthermore, when the librarian refused Palin threatened to fire her.
