too excited to sleep!

So it's down to three Senate races - Montana, Missouri, and Virginia - and the Dems are leading in all of these. But only barely.

A nail-biter, but AT FREAKING LAST it's one with hope attached! I can't tell you how excited this makes me. For the last several election cycles, I've felt like this wasn't my country, that insane bastards had been granted power by people who also lived in this country but whom I'd never met and certainly couldn't understand; when they elected Bush, I thought they must be aliens. I mean, what kind of fool would buy the Neocon dog-and-pony show? Well, apparently people have discovered that the Neocons were taking their money and selling them shit. And it wasn't good.

We have regained control of our country. At long last I feel like I'm not an alien, and that this could well be my country again. It's not about Democratic victory; it's about NOT handing the keys back to drunk drivers.
