Welcome, President Obama!!! I’ve finished my champagne, listened to the concession speech interrupted by typical angry booings and slurs, and am going to bed. Too bad McCain couldn’t have been this gracious for his whole campaign. Perhaps things would have turned out differently if he hadn’t fomented so much hatred. But it’s finally over, and the best man won.
I was amazed at how quickly it ended. My memory is fuzzy on election nights prior to 2000. Honestly, it hadn’t mattered that much to me before then. 2000 dragged out for weeks. 2004 took a day or so, I think. Tonight, it all ended with California closing its polls. Thank you, California. Actually, thank you, nation. Or at least those parts that voted Democrat. The rest of you can go to hell.
Yes, I know I’m supposed to be magnanimous and forgive the hatred and bigotry of the right, but honestly, fuck ’em. I’ve had to put up with eight years of incompetence and evil from the Bush presidency, two years of hate-based campaigning for this presidency, and twelve years of your so-called Gingrich-inspired crapolution, so if you’re going to be a sack of douchewallops, I am not yet ready to forgive you. Frankly, I fully support the AIP, but only as long as every motherfucking one of you that voted Republican this time around is shipped off to Alaska before it secedes. Fuck you and the party you stand for. That is all.
