The 2012 election is over and all in all it was an awesome day to be a Democrat, a pretty great day to be a progressive, and an okay day to be an atheist who supports secular values.

Today is Election Day and I will be at the polls all day long with no internet access. That is the price I pay for writing my name on the ballot for Minority Election Inspector. In any case, I know the media is calling this election a squeaker, but it really isn’t. I’m going to call it right not.
Election Day is right around the corner and all the focus is on the Presidential race. But there are other races going on too. In the district that I am from originally and where my parents still live, the congressional race is slightly heating up. First, there was the big primary battle between two incumbent Democratic congressmen and how the main race brings the issue of Synagogue and State to the forefront.
The Vice Presidential debate brought out a lot of interesting “stuff.” Even though it came toward the end of the debate, the one thing about this debate that I don’t think we can forget about is something that Paul Ryan said. When asked what personal characteristic he would bring to the table, he actually said, “Honesty.” In my opinion, that was the Big Bird moment of the debate.
Yesterday was definitely not a debate to remember. For starters, Obama actually beat Romney as the most boring man on the stage. Granted, he didn’t win the most boring man in the room; that prize went to moderator Jim Lehrer.
