Exhale an O'Hallelujah
It's morning in America.
After eight hellish years, the majority of the American People have voted the crazies out of the white house. The republicans lost big-time. To borrow their own words from '04, "We won, you lost, get over it." But somehow that's not enough for those of us who have been screaming bloody murder since 2000..... and have finally been proven wise all along.
A heartfelt debt of genuine gratitude goes out to the hardworking progressive community of internet bloggers, investigating journalists, gov watch-dogs, volunteers, and old hippies. All have contributed immeasurably to my education and subsequent divine madness. I pledge to continue the hard work of digging for truth and reporting on it here.
I would like to also thank all those on the right for their unintended contribution in making our O-victory a certainty. Many a bitter thank you's to: the apologetic FauxNews cheerleaders, conservative talk radio, religious fundy fruitcakes, all manner of racists, bigots, ignoramus ditto-heads, predatory capitalists, and democrats for mccain. Thanks but no thanks to all the folks who were dead wrong about the colossal train-wreck that was the Cheney/Bush juggernaut. The list is too long and the players not worth naming. But lastly, a cold and lonely thank you to Sarah 'Paleface' Palin and Joe 'Septic' Plummer. Now here is where my contempt for our misguided brethren ends.
The voting machines actually worked ( for us ) this time.
It's time to christen the Good Ship Obama/Biden.
It's time to usher in a new era of personal responsibility and restore our place in the world community of nations.
It is time to bring our military home, end the occupation of Iraq.
It's time to praise the Lawd and pass the peace pipe.
