Good riddance, loser! Way to show ZERO compassion or regret.

How about a counseling memo or an official reprimand first? Going from A to Z in this instance seems very, very extreme.

I'd be interested to see how much different this story would have been had Kathleen Moore wrote it? Anyway, hats off to these guys, who risk their lives for us every single day.

One other thing. I find it hypocritical that friends of the shelter would stop their fundraising if the appointment went through. You're not really doing it for the animals then, are you? Why would you punish them? I was also not in favor of the appointment, but I would never stop doing good for the sake of the animals.

Wow. Surprising outcome, but good for the people who's voices were heard. Don't blame Ms. Abele, though. Blame the hiring process and the people who decided she was the best candidate. Let the process carry on.

The entire cliff was set up by reckless spending on the Republicans part. Two unpaid wars, a prescription drug program and the Bush Tax Cuts were all put on a credit card and paid for with money we do not have.

The President just won a resounding re-election and campaigned on this very issue. In fact, more people agree that taxes need to be raised for incomes over $250K than did vote for the President. This is not rocket science. We're talking about a 4% increase on those who can more than afford it; instead of it being put on the backs of the middle class. Republicans still don't get it. They refuse to adhear to the will of the American people.

I'm curious what additional spending that santulka speaks of? The President has offered across the board spending cuts, in addition to an increase in revenue. The GOP continues to be on the side of the 1%, those so-called job creators, who created SO many jobs under the Bush years. How did those tax cuts work for job creation then?

Thank you, Senator McDonald, for all your tireless advocacy for your constituents, and for raising awareness, funds and support for Autism and the Developmentally Disabled community. I applaud your vote for gay marriage, and although it probably played a part in you losing your seat, it showed me the amount of courage you showed in making that vote, despite the numerous calls to do otherwise. Kudos to you for taking a stand and not backing down.

Hats off to Sen. McDonald for standing for his principles voting for gay marraige despite the unpopularity of it within his party. There were others in the Republican party who choose not to case a vote and abstain from taking a stand. He certainly has my vote on Nov. 6!

From: UPDATE: As absentee ballots are counted, Marchione adds 4 votes to her lead over McDonald
