Barack Obama Wins Presidential Election

Obama Hugs

Before I go back to talking about rimjobsgigantic penises and double penetration, I thought it’d be best to acknowledge that something big happened in America last night. President Barack Obama was elected for four more years. Maine, Maryland and Washington became the first three states to approve marriage equality by popular vote. Wisconsin‘s Tammy Baldwin became the first openly gay individual to be elected to the US Senate. And I might still be drunk.

What news from election night has you celebrating? What didn’t go as well as you had hoped? Chime in with your thoughts in the comments section. Let’s share our feelings and stuff (as politely as possible, please).

Just to be fair and balanced, here’s Mitt’s concession speech too:

    It is still ILLEGAL by federal law which supercedes any state law.

  • phrankly

    You forgot to mention that Washington State also legalized Gay Marriage by popular vote.

    Congratulations United States of America, you have done a wonderful thing by voting to grant President Barrack Obama another 4 years in the Oval Office! [Of course that is looking at the situation from my political perspective] And naturally I’m also pleased with the decision the voters of Maine and Maryland have made as well as my heartfelt congratulations to Senator elect Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin.

    Having said that I also want to extend my deeply felt admiration to Mitt Romney for the way he handled his defeat at the ballot box and for his gracious & conciliatory speech conceding the Obama win. I have neither appreciation nor sympathy for Republicans but I do believe in giving credit where credit is due. I hope that the Republican Party will learn from this defeat that their extremely rightwing views plus the hold they’ve allowed the Religious right and the Tea Party to have over the party must be severed.

    I am thrilled about the president’s victory.The republicans should hang their collective heads in shame for polarizing the country and putting the electorate into groups of people voting in order to survive in order to achieve justice and liberty for ALL!.I pray the president can bring this country together and show the world he is the president of all the people.

    It helped that some Republican legislators around the state openly supported gay marriage and even made tv commercials despite what that might have meant to their political careers.

    I’m really surprised that Oregon did not legalize recreational marijuana use.

  • Patrick

    It gives me hope that one day each state in this great country will recognize marriage equality. I hope Pennsylvania, my home state, follows the lead of Maine, Maryland and Washington

    She BARELY won….let’s hope next election she and her hateful views are voted out.

    I’m a Republican so obviously I am not happy about the presidential election but what I’m even MORE unhappy about is that a corrupt scandel surrounded democrat who refused to debate his opponent unless there were special rules beat an openly gay republican who actually fought on issues in Massachusetts. There may not be equality in all the states when it comes to marriage, but within the gay community there is also NO equality.

    If you are a republican reading this site, then don’t be surprised that nobody gives a fuck what you think.

  • Commenter

    Never have the stakes been so high. Never have I become so personally involved (financially and as a volunteer) in an election. And never have I been so euphoric about an election’s outcome. However you slice it, the results represent an enormous victory and a big step forward for our community. Much remains to be done and our march towards full citizenship goes on, but for now, this is a moment to savor.

    I had sex with Scott Brown and he lost! OH WELL! Brown was only good for a piece of ass anyway! HOT, HOT, Hot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • James Hagerty

    How could the Log Cabin Republicans endorse Mittens? Can any self respecting gay man answer that question? And don’t pull a Michelle Bachman on me!

  • domtoppapi

  • domtoppapi
