It seems that we did it…

11-07-06: The day on which the House and Senate will be reclaimed by the people.

The woman’s sign was right in the end – on November 7, 2006, the House and Senate were reclaimed by the people, as Jim Webb won the Virginia Senate race by the narrowest of margins, but enough to where George Allen conceded. So now we’ll be back to the situation in Virginia as it was before George Allen was elected to the Senate in 2000, where we had one Republican (John Warner), and one Democrat (Chuck Robb back then, Jim Webb come January).

Now I’ve not had a chance to listen to the conservatives on the radio since the election, whom Dad describes as quite entertaining because they’re all nuts. I figure that tomorrow while I’m out, I’ll get to listen to Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Mark Levin on the radio. See what these guys think about it all. I was listening to Laura Ingraham on the way home from work tonight, and she suggested that the GOP should realign their leadership.

Meanwhile, going out will involve a Richmond-to-DC trip, since I want to go to Potomac Mills to get a new winter coat at outlet prices. My current winter coat, which we’ve seen here, here, and here, is getting retired. The reason is because I’ve had it for five winters, and it’s starting to give out. The velcro is starting to come apart, and the stitching is coming out in the armpit. I will say this, though. That was the best winter coat I’ve ever had, and I will be sad to retire it. But hopefully I’ll come up with an even better winter coat, one that will last for five winters or longer. So we’ll see. The idea is to come back with a coat. We shall see.

Otherwise, I taped a copy of that photo of Cindy Sheehan and me to my locker at work, and those that knew who she was were quite impressed. A lot of people had never heard of Cindy Sheehan, much to my surprise.

Song: Not a song, but the sound of Jazz getting thrown out of the house on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
