This is my fourth presidential election since I reached voting age, and I will tell you, it is the first one in which I woke up to find LOTS OF GOOD NEWS.
We get four more years of Obama, AND we get Maryland, Maine and Washington in the Marriage Equality Club, for the first time by popular vote! I called it, motherfuckers! 2012 is the year we broke the streak!
Two states with legal marijuana! We got Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts, Tammy Baldwin in Wisconsin, Tammy Duckworth in Illinois, Mazie Hirono in Hawaii!
Team Rape Apologist got legitimately shut down!
Maryland also approved in-state tuition for undocumented immigrants, because we love our newcomers!
Minnesota declined to join Team Hate!
I’m so proud to be an American.
