It’s over. And I’m trying not to have too much schadenfreude about Romney backers threatening to move to Canada or Mexico, because that was the liberal reaction to Bush’s 2004 re-election, too.

I’m thrilled about more than just the president: Voters in Maine and Maryland approved a measure to make same-sex marriage legal in those states, the first time the issue was at the ballot and not in the legislature. And voters in Minnesota voted down a proposed amendment to make gay marriage illegal. Well done, people of M-states.

Plus, Todd “Legitimate Rape Doens’t Get You Pregnant” Akin and Richard “Rape Pregnancies Are A Gift From God!” Mourdock have not won re-election. Well done, every thinking human who realized what utter bullshit these two were spouting. 

 So yeah, I feel good. I feel that hate didn’t carry the day like I was afraid it would. And I feel really happy I don’t have to stockpile birth control between now and January. We may have a long way to go, but I’m proud of America right now.
