Shaun Jacob Halper at the Huffingtonpost verbalizes what I've been feeling for two days now.
"Sorry to be the buzz-kill at the liberal victory-party, but this election has been a historic nightmare for millions of gay Americans. In Florida, Arizona, and California propositions have been passed to amend state constitutions, permanently enshrining second-class citizenship into law. America has taken a tremendous step backward — actively revoking rights granted to citizens by state constitutions — though you'd never know it from most of the punditry and pontificating. Drunk on Obama victory, commentators are busy idealizing the American electorate, waxing rhapsodic about the inherent goodness of the American spirit, the progress it has made, and its tolerant essence."
