"Rosa sat, so that Martin could walk.
Martin walked, so that Obama could run.
Obama ran, so our children can fly."

(A poem my father heard on NPR a few days ago. He couldn't remember who wrote it, so if you know, please let me know, kthx.)

Congratulations, President-Elect Barack Obama.

I VOTED!

I swear I checked my ballot at least 3 or 4 times to make sure I'd filled out the Obama/Biden bubble.

I feel like I was a part of history today. you guise. That's awesome.

Simply put, McCain did not do what he needed to do to turn the tide.

Obama needed to be rattled, and McCain went on the attack -- sometimes directly ("If you wanted to run against George Bush, you should have run four years ago"), and sometimes snidely ("I so admire Senator Obama's eloquence") -- in an attempt to do just that.

In my opinion, he failed miserably. He didn't portray himself to be the better candidate; what I saw (and I watched the entire broadcast, looking away only when he decided to talk to Joe the Plumber for the 4576543rd time) was what I usually see when I look at/listen to John McCain -- the crazy old man in your neighborhood who shakes his fist and tells the damn kids to get off of his lawn.

I've been following this election fairly closely, more than any other since I've been of legal voting age (nearly 15 years now), and what I have distilled from McCain's campaign is this: he hasn't tailored his campaign to convince the American public why he's the better candidate...he's focused it around trying to convince them why Obama isn't.

Last night, he needed to shake Obama's foundations -- to make a case that "he'll come in to your house and jack your stereo" and other such bugaboos.

It didn't happen. Obama was, as he most often is: calm, cool and collected. He was never rattled, and he never stooped to McCain's level. As far as I'm concerned, that's the kind of person we need to lead this nation.

And. Speaking of bugaboos, a little something I found while reading my friend [livejournal.com profile] karnythia's journal:



IKR?

But! According to Chaffey Community Republican Women's president Diane Fedele, who distributed the image in their e-newsletter, it's NOT racist. Nope. Not in the slightest.

"I absolutely apologize to anyone who was offended. That clearly wasn't my attempt."

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

"I didn't see it the way that it's being taken. I never connected," she said. "It was just food to me. It didn't mean anything else."

It was just food? It never connected?

o______O

I'M SORRY? FUCKING WHAT?

THERE IS SUCH MUCH RACIST WTFUCKERY GOING ON HERE THAT MY BRAIN IS ABOUT TO EXPLODE.

Listen. If you're going to be a racist, that's fine. That's your right to have such views, and I'm not going to try to take them away from you. BUT FOR THE LOVE OF FUCK, OWN YOUR SHIT. Don't you dare try to pass something like this off and then hide under the tent of, "I'm not racist because I voted for Alan Keyes."

No. It just makes you stupid.

AND THEN?

If I didn't currently need them, I think my ovaries would have asploded. That little boy's expression is full of precious, precious win.
