We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
As we await the results of the Virginia and Montana senatorial races, we note with pleasure that the only candidate in the elections who was supported by Maggie's Farm - Joe Lieberman - won. We are also impressed by the levels of voting across the country.
We feel bad about Michael Steele, though. He does have a political future, doing something. He has good vibes.
No pontificating about the elections here - this was a normal and predictable swing of sentiment and energy at this point in a Presidential administration but, still, each individual election has to be understood in its own local context.
