Sorry, the internet was doing crazy shit on my computer.

I went out to an election night party. It was mostly IAF members (though not an official IAF function).

Got to see the coverage over NBC. Nice to see Obama not only win, but nail McCain in the electoral vote.

On the other hand, several more states now have gay marriage bans. The tide's shifting though.

The party had champagne. I had a glass. First time I drank since going to Japan almost three years ago.

Alcohol still tastes rough. Still can't drink fast enough to really impair me. Still don't see why people do it frequently.

If you haven't, go vote already. The internet will wait.

Sarah Palin is trying to associate Barack Obama with old, retired domestic terrorist William Ayers. You know, the guy that was a domestic terrorist when Barack was eight, and doesn't anymore.

That same day it starts, the New York Times came out with an article that the association between Obama and Ayers was extremely weak, as in the associations in Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon have more clout Ayers-Obama. This also drove the point home that she didn't read the Times, even though she needed two swings to answer that at the "what do you read" question.

You'd think she'd either a) back off and apologize, or b) show greater evidence for the association.

Instead, she c) replied "No, you're a towel."

Ms. Palin, you are wrong. You are not "partially right." You are not "speaking through a different perspective." You are not "having an opinion." You are not "correct by alternate rules." You are not "just playing the political game." You are not "so wrong that you're right." You are not "showing off that Alaskan know-how." You are just WRONG.

BTW: Barack Obama was in Legends Ball (2006) (TV) with Kelly Preston, and Kelly Preston was in Death Sentence (2007) with Kevin Bacon.

...yes, I used the Oracle of Bacon, what of it?

Yes, I am going to go back on what I said earlier. If Hillary ends up securing the nomination, by some spectacular turn of events, then yes, I will vote for her, and not Nader like I have said here. I still don't like her politics, but it's a lot better than McCain.

Y'know, I just want Ron Paul to run as an independent, for no other reason than to split the Republican vote and make Nader's run not seem so bad.

If Clinton gets the nomination for Dem candidate, I don't care who yells at me, I'm voting for Nader.

Edwards down

I started this primary season with a list of 4. Now Obama (my number 4) is left.

Richardson is out.

He's off the list, and Edwards and Obama move up a rank.

Caucus Day

Since there wasn't enough support for Richardson, my mother and I joined the Edwards group.

The rep from our district was 2 Edwards, 2 Hillary, and 1 Obama.

Well, Dodd dropped out, so Obama goes up to my #3. Nice to hear he took Iowa. I feel sorry for Richardson only getting 2%.

Still, it's early in the "primaries" so the field's still fresh.

Tomorrow (well, after I sleep and wake) is the Iowa caucus. I'm going to go with Richardson first. Then down to Edwards, Dodd, and Obama.

Then almost everyone else.

Then I'll leave early.

Then Hilary.

When it comes to the Democratic Caucus (we don't have primaries here), I have a few picks.

1. Bill Richardson

The guy's been doing some great things in New Mexico, and the commericals with Iraq hostages really show a good leader. Plus, he actually has experience in an Executive position, rather than most of the Senators.

2. John Edwards

I agree with the guy on a lot of issues.

3. Chris Dodd

I agree with him, too, but I think he's got less of a chance than Edwards, and really lacks what Richardson's been doing.

4. Barack Obama

He really has the charisma, but I don't think he has the experience to be a good president.

I really hope that the early primaries and caucuses push some of the lower ones out, so that they can put their votes to people more likely to beat Hillary. I'm completely against Hillary getting the vote, considering she folds like a cheap chair ("I fought for health care" my ass.) When Wesley Clark's e-mail's supported Hillary, I thought he lost it more than I was trusting him.
