Congratulations, Virginia

When we moved to Virginia, there was a Republican governor. There were two Republican senators. Virginia voted overwhelmingly for Bush in 2000. It was as red as a state can get.

Tonight our governor is a Democrat, both our senators are Democrats, and we just sent our 13 electors to vote for Barack Obama. I'm proud of my state, proud of the work we did, proud to change my blog's tagline.

We no longer live in a red state. Barack Obama has done what many thought impossible. All the ugliness, all the smears, all the dirt that was slung at him -- it didn't work. He is going to be President anyway. Congratulations, America. You did the right thing.


  1. Change has come to America! A very historic moment for our country and one that sets the tone for new ideas.

  2. Woot! What an exciting election. I can't post anything to my blog for fear of being disinherited but I am stoked that Obama won.
    Hugs and champagne,
    PS-Do Not go and visit That Man to gloat. He's probably in his underground bunker.

  3. Your state did a fine job! When I saw it shaded blue I just grinned and grinned! Congrats on your new tagline. It must have felt good to type it in!

    It doesn't matter. He may say he's gonna bring change, but he's all about cash just like John Mccain.

    You watch.

  5. Lydia,

    I wanted to tell you how much I have enjoyed reading your blog, which I found when my daughter entered the Book Arts Bash.

    I came to see whether you had changed your tag line - I bet that felt terrific!

    Yeah! Republicans are going down and I do mean down town China town! They are the worst people in the country; I mean the world! We Democrats got it right and they (the right) got it wrong!

    No more Republicans.
