Post-Election Pledge and Random Election Musings

* My version of the post election pledge: I promise to prayerfully support the President, even if I didn't vote for him and constructively criticize the President, even if I did vote for him.

Care to join me?

* The amount of vitriolic hatred, infantile poutiness, and ignorant fear mongering already spewing forth from ... (well, you all know who you are) is truly disheartening. I am sad to say it is not very surprising. Grow up, folks.

* Apparently Oregon has decided to change the name of the state to "The People's Socialist Republic of Oregon."

* Time will tell if I was right. I really hope not.

* Two things we clearly need to ignore in the future: exit polling and the mainstream media. Both now fully exposed for the jokes they've become.

* Andrew Sullivan, bemoaning the role moral issues played in the elelction, warns that "the intensity of the passion, and the inherently totalist nature of religiously motivated politics means deep social conflict if we are not careful."

When are people going to realize that secular materialism is a religion too and that its stranglehold on the Democratic Party is as frightening to some as the evangelical influence on the Republicans is to them?

Update: Joe Carter has some excellent notes on the election aftermath as does Jay.
