That? That right there? That is why I voted for this man twice, and why, even when I am most frustrated with him, I never regret that vote.

On the down side, my congress critter/cross to bear, Louie Gohmert, won by a huge margin.

C'mon, Obama, I need a great victory speech to wash that away. Especially since I'm now dry.

Did anyone else catch Rove accuse someone else of accusing their opponents of being un-American for disagreeing with them?  Hilarity at it's best.

I wonder if they'll play the theme from The Rock in the background again.  I'm hoping they'll play Depeche Mode's WRONG.

Everyone thought BO was toast in FL.  Maybe the way he handled the northeast post-Sandy was something Floridians could relate to.  God forbid he ever  has to deal with Lurch due to a disaster.
