How would I have behaved if Kerry had won?

A woman at work had been telling everyone how she was going to vote on the various state issues. I asked her why she was going to vote "yes" on #711 (the ban on gay marriage). She said, "Because I'm a Christian." I said "Christ taught that everyone should live with the same dignity and respect and judgment should be left to God.". "Well, that's not what my preacher says." was her reply (and the end of the conversation-this is where I work) So Thursday she comes into the office, says "How'd you like that election?" and starts doing a dance and chanting "I love it, I love it."

I got this today;
A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her
altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, "Excuse
me, can you help me?
I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know
where I am."

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air
balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2346 feet
above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and
100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.

She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be a Republican."

"I am," replied the man. "How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically
correct, but I have no idea what to do with your information, and I'm
still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."

The man smiled and responded, "You must be a Democrat."

"I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?"

"Well," said the man, "you don't know where you are or where you're
going. You've risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot
air. You made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and you
expect me to solve your problem. You're in exactly the same position you
were in before we met, but, somehow, now it's my fault."

I mentioned in a earlier comment the fatass loser that called me at work and cackled out a scary Kerry poem on Wednesday.

I can't imagine how readers of this blog must see me, what with all the cussing and ranting but, I will tell you honestly that in my daily life I earn and deserve respect for the work I do and, I take great pains with the way I conduct myself and treat others.
I'm just shaking my head now.
I am at a loss.

  1. Much as I prefer to think that I'd have taken the high road is Kerry had won, the truth is that it would be awfully darn hard not to do even a little gloating had Bush lost. It just wouldn't have been possible to contain my glee.

    That said, there's no call for people who know how you feel to continue to rub your nose in this election. Couldn't you say to cousin/colleage: You know how I feel, so I would appreciate it if you'd not send me stuff like this (or say stuff like this) to me.

    About the cussing and ranting: if anyone could measure the collective increase in C&R this week, the chart would go through the roof! It's all I did all day for at least two days after election day, cussin' and rantin'. At least there's good company!
