Don't blame me

... I voted for Kodos the old white haired dude.

I seem to recall a bunch of people insisting that "dissent is the highest form of patriotism."

Dissent you shall have, and in abundance.

I guess the re-election of Murtha and the election of Obama means that in Pennsylvania you can insult your potential constituents and promise to ruin their biggest industry and still get elected.
Present company excluded, of course.
NC didn't do so well, either.

It does make you wonder what this guy has to do to lose his seat short of being caught with a dead woman or a live boy.

WTF? 93% of people in the District of Columbia voted for Obama??? That can't be right. CNN shows 210,000 to 15,000.

I seem to remember quite a bit of dissent during the 90s.

Dissent away, beeyotches, just be sure to take the time to enjoy a resurgent economy and your loved ones back from Iraq.

Mike - my 85% white town went 68% Obama and the mayor was disappointed in the older people not getting past their prejudices. The first results out of Gary were 14,000 Obama, 250 McCain.

People are really sick of how the Republicans have run things.

That DC number is not surprising at all.

Philly was 83% Obama and I'm surprised it wasn't higher.

Baltimore (city proper) was 87%, and Baltimore is a lot like DC.

Mike, DC is a town that re-elected a crackhead for Mayor. He's still on the city council, iirc.

yeah, there was dissent in the 90's but there weren't the fevered claims of something along the lines of political oppression.

On a totally unrelated side note, my favorite railroad is in central PA, in Huntingdon County.

Larry, you mean the East Broad Top?

Orbisonia is about a 45 min drive from where I am. I've only been to the EBT once, when I was very young.

That would be the one. If I was only 45 minutes away I would be there all the time.
