  1. May I say, as an Australian, how pleased I am to see that there appears to be sanity in America, Ragnarok seems to have been delayed, and the world can heave a cautious sigh of relief.

  2. Not only did Obama win, but the Democrats will control both the House and the Senate.

    George W. Bush, you DESTROYED the credibility of the Republican Party! Now, if we can bury it completely and find a more credible party to represent Conservatives’ interests, such as the Liberterians, we will all be better off.

  6. Yes, welcome to a world where all the hard work, commitment and dedication that you have put into your profession/career is considered worthless, a world where you are demeaned and vilified for being successful.

    Obama is about as socalist as my cat.

  9. Is your cat’s name “Lenin”?

  10. On the bright side

    Some of Science Blogs favorite punching bags handily won reelection: Go Inhofe and Stevens!

  11. My cat is called Sam, he spends his profiting from my work and torturing weaker creatures. Very much the capitalist of Stalin’s proaganda.
