The Good

  • The world was still here when I woke up this morning.
  • The end of political commercials for at least six months. I would favor a constitutional amendment to make their end permanent (or a stipend to all Americans so that they can buy their own DVRS so they can skip the commercials like I do).
  • The pro-traditional marriage amendment in California (and several other states) appears to have passed. This will ultimately protect the children in the public schools from state-mandated indoctrination.
  • Another pro-child law was passed in Arkansas which makes only married couples eligible for adoption or foster care. While I'm not sure I agree with the foster care part, that children will not be adopted by homosexuals or single parents is good news. Now Christians need to step up and fill that void and embody their convictions (as PB preached on Sunday).
  • Al Franken appears to have lost. Enough said.
  • The rest of the Hollywood celebrities can return to their addictions and debauched lifestyles and leave middle America in peace from their sanctimonious bloviating.
  • John McCain won't pull the Republican Party toward the Left on economic issues.

The Bad

  • While it will be nice to see them step back as a frothing mouthpiece for the Democratic Party, the mainstream media will go back to doing what it does best: making every personal tragedy an indictment of at least one Republican.
  • Anti-abortion propositions largely failed, including a parental notification law in California and an abortion ban (with rape and health exclusions, no less) in South Dakota. The latter is a grim indication where this country is at on this issue. Perhaps, as Dr. Moore said in his address last week, abortion is at the point of no return in this country on the legal end.
  • The vile Rep. Murtha won re-election in Pennsylvania (even after recently calling his constituents "racist" and "redneck").
  • 7 million self-identified white, born-again Christians and 12 million black Protestants voted for the most pro-abortion candidate in history. This is a moral tragedy.
  • Republicans could mistakenly see this election as a message to them that they have to "go liberal" to get elected.
  • SNL loses their best (and only funny) material.

The Best

  • God chose Obama to win, and God is sovereign.
  • The Gospel marches on.

Murtha, who is also pro-life and anti-gay marriage?

A little research is a good thing, Darius.

Intellectual laziness strikes again.

So just because he's pro-life or anti-gay marriage means he can't be vile? Ever heard of Michael Savage?

Murtha called our troops murderers and rapists in Iraq when some allegations came out. They were all acquited, but he never bothered to apologize for slandering them.
