I'm already disappointed. I can't believe that Americans bought into the fear nonsense and flag waving from Bush. This has been a shitty four years for me, and I can credit Bush's decisions with at least a third of that shittyness. More to the point, I can't believe people think Iraq and terrorism are the same fight, or that they overlook Bush's total disregard for fiscal responsibility.
Ohio voters passed Issue 1, which basically says only man-woman couples can be married and be entitled to said benefits. Idiots. Even our Republican governor and senator (which I voted for, because I'm not a party-line guy) said it was a bad idea. That "domestic partner" health insurance Stephanie and I had before we got married would be gone now. I'll never understand why people give a shit what others do in terms of relationships, and how someone else's actions somehow lessen the significance of their own.
Sigh. It's gonna be a rough couple of years.
