Hope everyone got a chance to vote yesterday.
Pretty exciting times, right? I was very impressed with the dignity and grace of McCain's concession speech. And Obama was inspiring as usual. And the Daily Show/Colbert Report coverage was excellent!
Some kid in my 7 year old's class keeps saying things like, "If Obama wins, he's going to make America change it's name" and "If Obama wins, he's going to take all the guns away from the Army." I told my son to tell him, "The president can't do anything without the approval of Congress." Silly impressionable children!
I'm especially excited to realize the ads and slander and signs are all coming down. There were 2 women who's ads in Denver were getting so vicious against each other that I wouldn't have voted for either of them, given the chance. It really chaps my hide that I had to sit through all that shit-slinging and they weren't even on our ballots here in little, ol' Parker! Not that TV can filter that way but wouldn't it be nice? (jealous of those with TIVO!)
Glad the campaigning is over, Ruth!
