A New America


We chose our leadership last night with a convincing voice. We can be proud of who we are as a nation because we made the right choice. This decision will be applauded by the world.

The election has happened exactly as I expected it would, predicted it would, and for the many reasons I've said that it would. This is a historic election, literally the "end of an error" in American history.

On a personal note... as I told a friend,
I called the election at 8:25 pm for Obama on the TN Free political blog right after Ohio. Even so, at 10:00 pm when the networks called the presidency for Obama, I still got choked up. It's been so long in coming. 1000's of blog posts, comments, emails ... such a long hard 8 years. Almost the entire decade of my 40's. Just imagine how it feels to be an African-American this morning. (...Talk about a long time in coming!) Even though I'm not hurting at all compared to many, America is facing serious challenges.

I'm looking forward to the end of political negativity, bitterness, secrecy, lies, abuse of power, incompetence, and as Scott McClellan called it - "the perpetual campaign mentality" that has divided this nation and formed the basis for flawed leadership. President Obama will of course make mistakes, but at least I trust him. I think others will too if they give him a chance to earn it.

For me, I'll be taking some time off from political posting at here at TN Loose Canon.

Wisdom has been vindicated.

Looking at that photo of Barack, Michelle and those two young daughters of his, I have to wonder how Barf Bush would react if it were Poppy that was going to be turning over the house keys in January.

Amen, brother, a cohort of mine, being well into my 40s myself - so angered and disempowered by all of what followed the great steal of 2000; so hopeful for the change that has come now. So frustrated, and disbelieving, as a twenty-something during Ronald Reagan's "reign of error" and the Republicans' tenacious hold on power for decades.

Here - now - a new time, a new day, a new era! Let it be longer than that which came in '92, the Grand Old Party becoming exactly that - old think, a thing of our past, "neo" or otherwise.

To Change!

William:

It appears that McStain's conciliatory concession speech may have been a bit premature:

I'm guessing Serr8shit must be lurking. He came to my house and, of course, endeared himself with his usual bons mal.

This must be an unintended consequence of he and his group of idiots not having a president they can (delusionally) believe in.

He is an asshat troll who thinks I'm a wimp and also thinks I have the power to destroy blogs on which I only comment. In other words he is about average for the reichwing dysintelligentsia.
