Last Tuesday, Mary Beth Buchanan got... well... THUMPED here in PA4, and I haven't even been on to
I don't have an excuse. Demands on my time have, shall we say "evolved", and I'm still trying to adjust. But now that I have an extra minute or two, please allow me to say a respectful, sincere:
WOOHOO! ALL RIGHT! TOO SWEET! EXCELLENT!
OK. Got that out of my system. (Yeah, right. I was practically dancing a jig around the living room on election night, and have found myself giddy at odd moments ever since. And if you don't grasp why, go read my piece about her when she announced for the race. This is a victory in more ways than one.)
Now it's on to November, and nothing more will be heard from my less-than-favorite former U.S. Attorney. Hopefully. From PA2010's coverage:
After delivering a concession speech and thanking her supporters, Buchanan hugged her husband and told him she’d have a second glass of wine.
Yep. Pour me one, too, Sweetheart! I don't drink... but for THIS, I'll make an exception!
A special "Thank You" to anyone who responded to my post and helped (or just went to learn about) her opponent, Keith Rothfus. He's been called a "true Tea Party conservative", and his win has saved me from voting for Altmire in the fall. I don't agree with the guy on everything, but he was the better candidate, and I'm glad he won. By a 2-1 margin, no less.
Looking forward to November, and hoping we see similar upsets all over America!
UPDATED to apologize...
I don't know what the hell is going on with my fonts. I've edited three times, and it keeps coming out all wonky. (No, I didn't have that wine. We'll blame Blogger.)
