Now, the Man on the Stand, He Wants My Vote.

I've never felt as excited or as hopeful about my vote in a presidential election as I did when I lined up at the polling place at 6:30 this morning.  Now, as I watch the returns come in, I actually feel kind of choked up.  Something really special is happening, something we can all be proud of.  I'm so happy my children are getting to see this.


Meanwhile, I guess this guy couldn't find an "I'm a Dumbass" sign for his front yard:


And from the Department of Creepy Oddities and Misplaced Quotation Marks:


Anyway.

This feeling almost certainly won't last long, but I plan to enjoy it while it lasts.  What a great night.

Why did the GOP try to convince voters that Clinton was backing McCain? I even had a robocall about it. Maybe if they picked a real issue (and a better VP), old John might have had a chance.

Jesus for president? I seem to remember a verse about that.

'Wine' is my president. Actually I am really happy Obama won. I was celebrating my last day at my job and celebrating the first African American president. Change is good.

i was speechless, and subdued, and still shocked - but smiled the whole night.
