For the first time in my children’s lives, they will have a president that doesn’t need to stick out his tongue in fierce concentration when tying his shoes.
I haven’t discussed politics that much on my blog, because the white-hot hatred I have for Bush is beyond discussion. For 8 years I have changed the channel when that moron* opened his mouth. To have a president that doesn’t shame me as a citizen – truly, something to be celebrated.
Both 2000 and 2004 were painful elections. Not just the blatant fraud, but the thought that over 50% of Americans were so gullible and, frankly, ignorant. I was afraid this past Election Day that somehow it would happen again.
So, Boo? Nea? It’s the beginning of another chance for America. A dawn of an age where perhaps we can undo the damage of the last 8 years. Perhaps repair our relations with other countries. Perhaps travel abroad again without a pained expression on our faces.
"Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"
*Apologies to morons everywhere.
