Sorry about the outage, guys. Apparently we hosed not only our own chinchilla but the hosting co’s chinch as well, and they were NOT pleased. I’ve turned off a bunch of stuff including logins, so sign your comments if you can’t get through, and we’ll do a major damage assessment over the weekend and turn stuff back on.
Chat was awesome, you all were wonderful, and we’ll bring it back for debates, special occasions, and the like. It really helped last night.
George Allen is no longer a senator. I’m sleeping the sleep of the just tonight. The just, the hungover, and the sugar-high-crashing.
If you feel yourself starting to come down from the adrenaline rush, just repeat to yourself: Senator John Tester. Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
This is why we didn’t give up. This is why we didn’t back down. This is why we kept fighting and kept arguing and kept donating and kept calling and kept writing. This is what it feels like when you look the inevitable in the face and you tell it to go fuck itself. This is why you hang in, for years and years, and never quit, and never stop.
Thank you for everything you did.
