Election craziness

I'll be damned. The hip-hop mayor rose from the grave. It's not a great day for Detroit.

In other news, it's a good day for Democrats nationwide. NJ and VA governorships, Ahnold got trounced here in California (although it would've been nice if 77, 78 and 80 passed, from my viewpoint, anyways), and when the GOP's biggest victory is Bloomberg keeping the NYC mayor's office (and he's a liberal, mind you) and defeating the Ohio reform initiatives (very sad that they went down), then you know things are heading south. 12 years ago, the GOP revolution began with winning the offices that Democrats won tonight. This may be the reverse trend going into 2006, if and only if Democrats get their act together. Just because the Republicans are imploding doesn't mean that Democrats will win by default. It still requires working for it.

In any case, I'm going to bed. And I'm sure that I can hear the last shreds of hope for Detroit being torn away.
