That's a heartbreaker

My dad lost his bid for state district representative by 147 votes. He was the only Dem running for distrcit rep to even give the incumbent a run for his money. But still, MAN. That is crazy close.

Still, a Dem took that Missouri senate seat. Could be worse.

That SUCKS! I blame Patricia Heaton and creepy Aramaic-speaking Jim Caviezel for bringing those hundred and fifty 33rd distict Republicans to polls. At first, I just found them irritating. Now it's personal.

Mom promised to save me some of the print smear ads his opponent whipped up. Like a list of "pro-abortion" folks who endorsed my dad. Mom: "Who on earth is 'pro-abortion?'"

Did I ever mention that my private school education came up at one point? This whole thing has been a little surreal.

So really, you lost the election for him. Curse you and your wonderful education.

We all pretty much expected that Jeff would loose the election for his dad one way or another.

Now, come on, we don't know it was Jeff's fault. Isn't Emory pro-abortion? I'm pretty sure he endorsed Mr. Stone.

I mean, I can't imagine this association was helpful to the campaign. That's just not what voters want to see.

Bummer, that's crazy close.

Emory thinks that everyone should be required by law to have at least one abortion before they can have a child and that everyone should be required to get gay married for a minimum of two years before they can get hetero married. He says if you're not willing to do those things then you didn't really want to get married or have kids and you don't deserve to. It's a little harsh but I think we can all see the logic in it.
