11:38 pm - On being a part of political history
On Tuesday November 3, 2009, political history was made in the United States. Dan Halloran was elected to the 19th City Council district in New York City, the first ever publicly pagan elected official in America.

But he isn't a Democrat, as many might think -- he's a Republican.

I am proud to say that I helped in his campaign, doing phone-banking, handing out palm-cards, acting as a poll watcher and verifying the vote totals on election night. And I am even more proud that my party, the Republican party, stood by him when he was scurrilously attacked because of his religion, by his opponent's political sponsor's newspaper. (See here -- 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 -- for some of what was brought up during the race.) At the victory party I made a point of going up to Queens County Republican Party Chair Philip Ragusa and personally thanking him for supporting Dan Halloran when he was attacked and he said, "Of course we would!"

I have never been prouder to be a member of the Republican party than I am now.
