Wow, what a night! The only thing that came close to the coolness of the Obama win were those holographic interviews CNN pulled off. Neat-o!
While realizing the historical significance of the Obama win I felt kind of “…so what, he’s black, big deal…” and I think it’s that attitude people took with them into the voting booth. Barack never campaigned on race because it didn’t really matter…this is “the new America”! And I don’t think people voted for him because he was black, they voted for him because he was the right man for the job.
This is the beginning of a new era of understanding between the races and religions, not just of the US but worldwide. The US has always been a leader, that shining city on the hill  that the world has always aspired to (the last 8 years excluded). The social, spiritual and economic ripple effect this will set off will be immeasurable and I hope he does the right thing.
As he said in his victory speech last night, now comes the hard part, getting things done. I think one of the most important orders of business is re-uniting the Untied States…do you think he can?
Well, I haven’t made fun of George Bush in a v-e-r-r-y long time but I haven’t had to. Now comes along a new politician (and I use that term lightly) to bring my attention to, Sara Palin! Unfortunately, some one has already beaten me to it.
Sarah Palin is a dumb ass, here are some excerpts:
Sarah Palin is a stupid, self important, ignorant bitch who I wouldn’t put in charge of wiping her own ass. And it’s not just that she’s dumb – which she is – it’s that she’s willfully ignorant of the facts and yet absolutely dead-bang certain that she’s right about her opinions.
Sarah Palin can only name one Supreme Court case – Roe v. Wade. She couldn’t even conjure up Dred Scott, which even Bush was able to do in the second debate with John Kerry…and this is most stunning of all, Exxon v. Baker – concerning the Exxon Valdez. A case which rendered a ruling during her time as Governer of Alaska, and about which she made public statements in protest of the decision.
Sarah Palin either could not or would not name a single newspaper or magazine that she reads. She couldn’t think of one. Not the New York Times, the Daily News, the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune. Not Time, Newsweek, U.S. News & World Reports. Hell, she couldn’t even think of a local paper in Alaska. Sarah Palin, by the way, has a degree in Journalism. No shit.
