Escape your life for a little while — come play in mine.

I’m not crazy! So there!!

Posted by Lissa on January 20, 2010

Because sometimes I do feel crazy.

Living as an anti-statist in the bluest of blue states means having to assume that anyone I talk with has very different views than I do.  Mind you, most people are polite about it, and the workplace isn’t a forum to really discuss politics anyway, but that’s just how it is: Statistically, I assume that anyone I talk with thinks I’m wrong.  Or nutso.

Or in support of an irresponsible homophobic racist reactionary ex-nude-model tea-bagging supporter of violence against women.

Massachusetts is sending a Republican to the Senate.

MASSACHUSETT[e]S.

I would have sworn that we would send a horse to the Senate before we’d send someone with the dreaded “R” after his name.

I’m not denying that this was, as Geraghty put it, a perfect storm situation.  And while Scott Brown seems very likable and intelligent, he’s still a politician.  Perhaps a better man than many — but he’s not the second coming of Christ, he’s a pol.  I don’t know but that he’ll be replaced in two years, when Pres. Obama heads the ticket.  (Here’s hoping he is wise about building up and maintaining the incredible support network he put together over these last few weeks!)

But for today, I’ll go around with a nice fuzzy glow.  Enough MA voters liked Brown, or hated Coakley, to send a Republican to the Senate to finish out Ted Kennedy’s old term.

Suddenly — *sniff* — I don’t feel so alone!!

P.S.  Not that I really felt alone — my blogroll is full of people from MA who don’t think I’m crazy.

They KNOW I am.  :)

    I can relate. I’m happy to see my town was split roughly 50-50. Now which 1/2 voted for Brown….

    My town went 66% for Brown. I love my town…

    Very true. If you’re like me and are a Libertarian living in a Blue State then everyone, liberals and conservatives, think you’re nuts.

    Don’t worry though, all your readers know you’re nuts and love ya anyways.

    So friggin’ happy today. I’ve vowed not to use the word, “Massholes” for at least six months!

  5. Reminds me of the old Catch 22 bit where the army guy wants to be sent home from the war because he thinks he is crazy, but the shrink tells him that if he really was crazy then he wouldn’t be sane enought to question his sanity. So therefore, merely thinking that he is crazy is proof that he is sane.

    I’m not sure how that fits, but the circular logic of it all makes my twisted little heart happy.
