We’ve been watching the returns on ABC. We started on CNN, but the Bush bias bothered us. ABC’s electoral projection started out Bush-36 and Kerry-3. Now it’s Bush-66 and Kerry-74.
It’s gonna be a rollercoaster of a night, but the reports of great turn-out are encouraging.
The one sad spot thus far is the passage of the rather severe anti-gay marraige amendment (it also bans civil unions between gays and hets) in Ohio. That one actually made me a little sick to my stomach. And we’ll have to hear about 10 more of these before the night’s over. Most likely, they’ll all pass.
Chances are I’m going to come away from this election with some seriously mixed feelings, even if John Kerry wins.
