from the middle - Musings of a not-so-innocent cow
Moo, moo
from the middle
so something I've noticed on the blogs- if you voted mccain, everything is locked or behind a cut and you've dug yourself into a little hole to cry.
if you voted for obama, you're posting paragraphs, pictures of victory and saying suck it republicans! (and yes I am generalizing 100s of people.)

The thing I think is funny about all this? I wish I could see how these same blogs looked 4 yrs ago, or even 8 years ago. because it'd be the same, only flipped. yes you will lose some "friends" - i have seen several ppl on facebook, myspace and LJ that have said "if you voted for *blank* remove me" but who needs friends that you can't disagree with?

give it a little time and we'll all go back to bitching about the new season of lost, how much we hate Thirteen, and why does EVERYONE have to be a Petrelli ??

and then in 4 years you can hate each other again.

I love being an American- every 4 years we ask one family to pack up their belongings, move out of the White House and let another family move in. If that man is lucky, he gets to stay for another 4 years, but after that? nope, he's gone too.

Very astute. Yes, the pendulum always swings the other way eventually.

yeah I don't get that at all. whichever way you voted, that doesn't mean you should alienate.

Um, I voted McCain. My post is friends locked because most of my personal posts are friends locked. It's normal for me. It is behind a cut because I don't want people who don't want to read it to have to skim over it. It's polite to put things like that behind a cut. Also, I'm not crying. I get that you have already said that you did generalize people, but I am going to politely take offense. I am not ashamed of my views. I am not going to pout about the situation. As for hour years ago, I never posted anything against Democrats. I don't and never will my Democratic friends even though I don't agree with them on several political issues.

most of my stuff is locked too, and I meant it more like cry/mourn, not cry/pout. If I offended, please accept my apologies.
