This Town's A Different Town Today

It's the day after election day. Exhausted, hungover campaign staffers are waking up next to other campaign staffers after celebratory/consolation sex all across this great country of ours. Tim Russert is high on dry erase marker fumes. The dust settles, and we see that the country has finally had enough of the Republican fear machine.

Aww, Linc, I'm sorry. It's not you. Like you said, it was a wave of anti-Republican sentiment, and unfortunately you got bowled over along with the dregs of your party. Please don't give up on politics. Why not run for governor? Or Senate again in a few years? Enjoy tending your horses for the next few years, and hopefully we'll see you again soon.

Look at him! I just want to send him a juice box and a cookie and tell him it'll all work out. Please send my Mom another Christmas card, Linc!



About 63 percent of voters rejected amending the state Constitution to give Harrah's and the tribe exclusive rights to operate the state's only casino.

THANK YOU. Thank you. I know this won't be the end of the issue, but at least I won't have to dread a casino two towns over from my hometown quite yet. I am also encouraged by the fact that the percentage of people opposed to a casino grows with every referendum.

Voters last considered a casino in 1994, when five separate ballot questions were rejected, including one that would have let the tribe build a casino in West Greenwich. That question was rejected by 54 percent of voters statewide.

Dear Harrah's,


Fuck off,
The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations

Hooray Deval!

I don't know if it's going to work out with Deval and I, however. In his acceptance speech last night, he kept saying that the politics of cynicism are over, that our cynicism should be left at the door. Unfortunately for me, I deal solely in cynicism and snark, so we may have a problem, touchy-feely Deval and I. But I hope he can do some good in Massachusetts.

Kerry Healey got smacked down by the people of Massachusetts. Damn.

Also, Mitt Romney is still a dink. Way to celebrate Kerry Healey when she's just lost, idiot. Celebrate all that she did because you weren't around to help her because you were busy making fun of Massachusetts and engaging in your little presidential bid/wankfest. God, January can't come fast enough so I don't have to look at him for a few years.

And, it's a major bummer on Questions 1 and 3 in Massachusetts. I do think childcare workers should have unionized because it is a hard job to do and it pays jack. And, in regards to Question 1, it's not the end of the world for me because my Shaw's does sell wine in the store.

Tune in to your favorite TV station/streaming video site, as President Bush has to try and face the nation with bravado and talk about how he still plans to get things done for the next two years with a Democratic majority in the House, and possibly the Senate. I hope he cries. God, please let him cry.

Well, that was fun. At least we won't have to deal with negative advertisements for a while. Up next, Presidential election 2008. Jaysus.
