Oh…My…God…

We actually did it.  We actually voted Barack Obama into the White House.

 

It hasn’t sunk in.  I still don’t believe it.  He has not yet made his acceptance speech…and I’ll tell you…  I’m in such disbelief that I’m half expecting him to walk out onto the stage, rip off a mask, and it’s George Bush.  That’s how shocked I am.  I can NOT believe that it’s real.

 

Michelle Obama said it, and it was a faux-paux…but I’ll say it and mean it.  For the first time in my adult life, I AM PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN.

 

I promise, I won’t rub it in.  I’m not going to put the Republicans I know through ANY of what some of my Democratic colleagues probably think they “deserve” after eight years of Bush.  That’s not my place.  I’ll be happy.  I won’t be cruel.

 

I will say, though, that it’s going to be weird blogging without Bush and the Republicans in the White House.  What on Earth shall I bitch about now???

 

I know there’s no way that — by God, I get to say it — PRESIDENT Obama will ever read my blog…but I still feel the need to say this, just in case.

 

Sir, THANK YOU.

  1. Thanks. That’s nice of you.

    I think McCain had a really good campaign, too. Honestly, if the reaction to Palin hadn’t been so negative with some people, I think he could’ve taken it. In fact, right up until 10:00 hit, I was still expecting Obama to lose. I was actually really shocked!

    At least we can move on from here, and my posts can get back to being irritating in more mundane ways. 🙂

  2. yeah, looking back, Palin wasn’t the best choice, but hey, hindsight is 20/20. I was a Romney guy, myself.

    I genuinely hope that Obama will be a good president, and I hope he realizes that ALOT of people did not vote for him. That being said, I hope and pray he runs a clean and effective government, is able to work with both liberals and conservatives to solve some huge problems we have coming in the next few years.
