While I can say emphatically that I'm not at all happy with an Obama win, I note that the country has survived socialists and eugenicists for the past 100 years. Hopefully the Repugnicons will now go about the business of purging the libtards and becoming a true opposition party. Not likely, but one can dream.
I don't have complete results yet, but it appears all my candidates - with the obvious exception of Baldwin - won. Obama's coat tails weren't very long in my area, I guess. All those suckers buying the Obamessiah's change message seemed to lose focus farther down the ticket. I'd like to say I'm surprised at Obama carrying Indiana, but given the demographics and McCain's lack of appeal, I'm not. One thing that strikes me - there really isn't a big ideological divide in Indiana. Mitch Daniels is a Bush Republican who seemed to run away from the McCain campaign.
The Libertarians made a sad showing in an election that was tailor-made for them - a weak Repugnicon candidate should have allowed them to garner more than a paltry 1.24% of the vote in the most "conservative" district in Indiana, although Horning got twice that in the gubernatorial race, which had a strong Repugnicon candidate. Way to go guys!
It's going to be a long four years...
