Meh.

It's great to not have a scumbag get elected but it's not the place to claim "team blue won" either IMO.

Too many partisans right now thinking MORE about their "team" than what's right and wrong IMO.


I'm Center-Left and am increasingly being drawn to becoming an Independent.

Can NEVER become a Conservative but I do agree with a lot of their fiscal views, taxation notwithstanding.

The last 15 years I've argued with the far left (in college) and the far right (older friends and family) because I like to be the contrarian. It was fun!!

It's not fun anymore. Very divisive now and a bit scary TBH.

We need better ideas in this country and better candidates.



But yeah, the scumbag didn't win, so I agree it was a very good day...

Yeah, and if you're using the "He's 19" logic, then I guess the best report a scout could give us is:


"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

You're ofcourse welcome to disagree, but to me, there's no question which of the parties is right and which is wrong. I'm not partisan, or at least, I try not to be, but, I'm in absolute disagreement with the republican party. If they'd start getting things right I might support them. I voted for Rudy the when he ran for mayor cause I didn't like Dinkins. (Rudy wasn't a train wreck back then like he is now). I was strongly considering voting McCain over Gore, but Bush ran a dirty primary and beat McCain in 2000. I'm not partisan and I have voted R at times, but the republicans have been wrong about everything since Obama took office. At least, in my opinion.

So, in a non partisan manner, I cheer for team blue - if that makes sense. I'm also rooting for the republicans to find their way back to sanity, but I don't see much hope for that.
