Your section about knowing each other and holding each other up through the hard times reminded me that a lot of the bloggers I have come to rely on started politically blogging in the wake of the 2004 election, another time when we really needed each other. Which in turn made me curious about how we liberals are going to rise to this massive challenge.
I see it as both an opportunity to really show what we're made of, and a challenge to not take anything for granted. If we want the same kind of solidarity, mutual support, and political oomf as we saw twelve years ago (or actually more and better as I feel this situation requires), we have to actually make it happen. We can't act as if it is inevitable, as we have just been so hideously reminded.
As for cats on the kitchen table, our cat still makes it into the garage sometimes so she can leave paw prints on my housemate's hot rod and/or my neighbor's Harley...
