The Morning After
Now that the election is over and I have had a few moments to have sobered up after the one of the greatest victories in history, I can write a short entry here to say what a great thing it is that BO won. It was one of the quickest victories I had ever seen, with McCain conceding his loss only a few short hours after the polls closed. It's great that Barack won and I can't tell you how awesome it feels to be an American again. I am so proud of this country and yes, I admit it, I got a lump in my throat and felt emotional when it was announced that he won the race. Speaking of race did you notice that the highest concentration of McCain votes were in the Southern enclave of racist idiots known as the bible belt? hmmm? Anyway, it is a great thing to see our country put it's money where it's mouth is and we can claim a great thing now. Name another country where a member of an impoverished minority, became the top dog? It's never happened anywhere else, not any socialist or communist country (Evo and Hugo were not members of a minority group, before you start sending me corrections). It is time for hard work, intellectualism and ingenuity not just profit driven production to assume
it's rightful place in the American landscape. We can go back to making fun of numbskulls who think that libraries are stupid and that jesus rode dinosaurs 6 thousand years ago when the earth was created. Now just one question; if we were voting for change, why so many goddamn Clinton people in the incoming administration and why is there now talk about BO going back on his promise to make the rich pay their fair share? Somebody hand me a bloody mary, I got a feeling I'm going to have to pay even closer attention to this administration than I did Bush.
