I'm just toasting the end of all the political advertising. And here in Maryland we are toasting to the passage of Prop. 6, allowing gay couples to marry, and Prop. 5, the Dream Act.

Break out the good stuff.


When in doubt, open another bottle.

Well, my opinion on Carter is that he's a good, well-intentioned man, which I can't say about Obama. He was inept, but I think Obama is harmful.


Just one more sip.

If we could survive 8 years under Bush/Cheney, we can survive anything.

Had post election beers with co-workers at a local bar that kindly stayed open for us after closing time. Goose Island Sofie, and Upland Wheat. No drinking prior, was working. Both beers were excellent with good company.

I have a 1997 Matanzas Merlot that I might open this weekend.

For those of you who live in Colorado and Washington, the name of this thread is:

"US elections, what are you smoking?"

This quote from the Colorado governor is hilarious:

Board-O, I have a new, heightened respect for you. I don't know when I'll be in New York, but I'd talk life and wine with you any time.

"Truth, justice and the American way". Oops, wrong thread. That belongs in the "Things that represent Superman" thread.

I learned looooooong to not discuss religion or politics at dinner with family or friends. This election just re-confirms that mantra.


Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

I saw the hand writing on the wall and moved to Quebec BEFORE he was sworn in. Moved back 02/28/81. Due to family issues, I could not move out before 01/20/2009. But my mind did.


Live simply, Laugh often, Wine a lot!!!

Maybe this is a dumb question - but how would moving to a more socialist and liberal country have helped if you had moved to Canada before 1/20/2009?

The passing of the Colorado initiative gives new perspective to the John Denver song, "Rocky Mountain High". Smile

Had several friends over (libs and cons).
Eventhough both political parties were present we all had a lot of fun, shared great food, opened some good stuff (in my opinion), and regardless of our political parties/affiliations and our support for either candidate we all respected each other.
Popped open:
2 bottles of 2001 Ch.Mouton Rothschild
2 bottles of 2004 Harlan Estate
2 bottles of 2009 Justin Focus
2 bottles of 2008 Epoch - Paderwski
1 bottle of 2007 Erna Schein - Blender Boy
2 bottles of 2008 Kistler Chardonnay Les Noisetiers
2 bottles of 2009 Sea Smoke Chardonnay
and for the big announcement (which we pretty much knew or alteast had a very good feeling about way before the actual announcement)....
4 bottles of 1996 Dom Perignon!!!!

Awesome night!
I even would have shared our stuff with Board-O Big Grin

Salud!!
