Thanks. It doesn't mean this country doesn't still have a boatload - a danger-of-sinking-amount - of problems. It means that we may have the right person at the helm right now. I am so bloody relieved.

Oh, aye, it was; now it's up to all of us to make the coming days, weeks and years equally good for democracy. Woo-hoo!

Our media was still a little more fixated on horseracing... but definitely we all think it's great stuff.

Horseraces? As in, focusing too much on the race aspect of our election, or as in an actual horse race that's important in Australia and not up here? (Yes, I am that sleep deprived and loopy this morning.)

And you're right, it is great stuff.

BAZZA BAZZA BAZZA!!! OI OI OI!!!

Just saying :-)

p.s. There's been some talk about disgruntled Ahh Murkan conservatives wanting to emigrate en masse to Australia. Erm, do they actually know anything about Australia besides 'has kangaroos'? Like, say, the bits about general social liberalism and compulsory voting and oh yes public healthcare and many of the rest of their supposed worst nightmares...?

I've spent the day on the couch being sick, but it's allowed me to watch some coverage of the conservative meltdown-cum-imaginary world building exercise craziness that's come in the wake of the election. I've also, perhaps in the spirit of knowing one's opposition, read a few of the fruitbat right-wing (or just plain hovering way off any axis) blogs.

They all live on Planet Goo-Goo.

So if they've decided, for whatever reason, that Australia is Better Than Here, mere logic and actual facts isn't going to stop them from thinking that. Logic and actuality are just socialist scams.

I'm waiting for some informed reflection.
The whole "swing state" thing was clearly off; Romney got almost nothing.
With most of the Senate seats up Democratic, net +2 D is spectacular. Yet the House is only up maybe half a dozen Ds.
I look forward to some entertainment in the explanations.

Informed reflection? I'll want to read or listen to some of that. Eventually. Now, though, I'm indulging in cruel schadenfreude.
