There were some elections, which you may have read about.

1. As a Virginian, I’m sorely disappointed by the substantial victory of knee-jerk social conservative Bob McDonnell who, as of 2003, either had not violated my home state’s rather inclusive “crimes against nature” law (about which the only positive thing that can be said is that it does not technically discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation or relationship status) or could not recall if he had. Which is – come on – kind of weird.

Fortunately, he did come around somewhat late in life on the issue of whether or not women should work. Dare to dream: maybe he’ll even legalize oral sex.
