That was so worth it.
I'm a little drunk, folks. Just a little tipsy, anyway. And it feels good.
I've been wound tight as a drum for so long that I'd forgotten what it feels like to just laugh out loud in joy, or shriek with laughter, or shout with elation. I did all those things tonight. I'm elated and relaxed and limp and fuzzy.
We won. We won all over the place.
The President is in the White House for another four years. FOUR MORE YEARS, BABY.
All the Orange to Blue Senate races - we ran the table. We swept 'em.
MARRIAGE EQUALITY PASSED AT THE BALLOT BOX in three states - count 'em. And anti-marriage shut down at the ballot box in the fourth state. Read it and weep, haters, your "no popular vote has ever supported gay marriage" meme is dead like a doornail. Dead like a vampire after Buffy got her hands on it. Dead. D-E-A-D, like your presidential campaign.
I am so proud of everyone who voted, called, donated, walked precincts, and protected voters. I am so proud of everyone. I am elated and happy and limply relaxed.
I can breathe now.
I'd forgotten what it feels like to breathe without stress.
