President-Elect Obama seems to be real…

by meanlouise on November 5, 2008

in news, politics

I’ve checked about two dozen papers now, plus CNN. President-Elect Obama is a real and for-true thing. It makes me cry all over again.

I refuse to think about how Ted Stevens possible victory in Alaska could bestow upon the nation Senator Palin.

No, I’m going to go back to reading all of the happy stories, like the New York Times, “Obama Is Elected President as Racial Barrier Falls” and the Washington Post, “Obama Makes History” and FOXnews, “For President-Elect Obama, a ‘Steep’ Climb Ahead”. The Onion gave us, Daily Beast and Huffington Post.

What a good day.

I’m saying it right now: we can only (semi)comfortably accommodate 10 out of town guests for the Inauguration and Jungle and Mrs. Pete have already claimed the best spots so make up your minds sooner rather than later.

I call dubs on the next bed. If Bruce & the E-Street Band plays the inauguration, I’m also calling in all debts (not that there are any) with the Coolest Person In The World for tickets. Isn’t this the most beautiful morning in America? Isn’t it amazing to have elected a man who can speak so eloquently and passionately? Can Bush take an early retirement?

I haven’t given a single thought to the inauguration. That’s going to be some scene, isn’t it?

The crowd outside the White House last night
just needed torches and pitchforks.

You may bring the one that only you can see. The others will need to stay home.

that was funnier before I hit “submit comment”, but that’s the story of my life…
