Yes we did!
CNN calls it at 11 as the polls close out west. Cheryl’s been saying for two hours that she needed to go to bed… in twenty minute intervals. She’s still up. I can’t blame her. I’m projecting I’ll be awake for at least another couple hours.
Our long national nightmare is over. Say it with me. Barack Obama is going to be the next President of the United States. I can’t squeeze my wife because of the accident, so would any of stand in? I’m giving all of you a virtual hug.
Our polls here in AK hadn’t even closed when McCain started his concession speech, it was crazy!!!!
I’ll hug you if you don’t slobber on me.
We did it! It seems unreal. When America absolutely had to make a change, it did. Maybe I’ll stop being a pessimist.
Hell no, I won’t stop being a pessimist. I’ll just start being a happy pessimist.
What are we going to bitch about now?
I can’t tell you how happy and relieved I am. I’ve now said it before and now I’ll say it again; We are the *real* America. God bless Obama!
