Colorado went blue this year. I should have figured the good ole boys weren’t going to just let this one slide. The Republicans lost the presidential election, and what is their natural response? Go buy guns. Don’t forget Colorado is also home to the NRA. If you click on the website, you can actually order gun-totin’ Santa Christmas Cards.
Here’s some news articles in case you haven’t heard. Living here, its hard NOT to notice the paranoid gun-clutching that’s been going on:
Even McCain told his fellow Republicans to unite under their new president. Watching his concession speech, I gained a lot of respect for the man. He talked about Obama achieving a dream, becoming an icon and bringing forth a positive response from a tattered country. But the damage had already been done. The Palin-induced, terrorist paranoia had infected the masses. You could hear it in the booing crowd on election night. I’ve received more than one “Obama is the Anti-Christ” text message during these last few weeks. McCain’s followers obviously are NOT going to come together with their fellow Americans.
When I went to pick up LB from her dad’s house this weekend, I saw this sign still in the window:
I don’t think its coming down. Its a direct retaliation to the election. I wonder how many guns are in that house. I’m afraid the war between Rooferman and myself runs much deeper than I thought. And its not ending any time soon.
I love my new president, but I’m scared.
