Obama

Told ya so.

Dodged a bullet on that electorial prediction, though. That would have been a lot of beer. At one point during the night Obama was actually at 292, and I was all, like, "Oh shit, you gotta win another state. Any state dude, even one no one cares about. How about Nevada? Or a Dakota?"

McCain's speech was all class. I'd like to think that, were McCain elected, the man we saw last night is the man who would serve as president, rather than the stranger we saw on the campaign trail.

Driving to work today I noticed that Obama's promise of unity is already reaching fruition. The two Seattle newspapers--which are often at loggerheads--both came up with the same headline:

Black & White

I also noticed that the local McDonald's had changed it's marquee overnight:

When Obama is president ...

Coincidence? OR THE RETURN OF CAMELOT??!

Conversation I just had with Squiggle:

Me: Who's the president?

Squiggle: Obama!

Me: And who's the vice-president?

Son: A pumpkin!

OCTOBER SURPRISE!!

Anyway: yay, glad that's over. Going to bed now. Wake me on January 20th.

I'm so totally writing in Obama/A Pumpkin on the next ballot I fill in. Which, considering you don't even get to do that in Canada, is gonna be counterproductive, but it'll feel good.

Yeah, all class, except for that part where he was like, "This election proves that racism is officially no longer a problem in America!"

Exactly. Especially the way he handled his supporters' booing whenever he mentioned Obama's name.

Yes! Pumpkin for VP! (god, I'd love - LOVE - to know the train of thought that led to "pumpkin" as the correct answer for that question).

And McCain's speech, and his handling of the booing supporters, was actually kind of moving to see. He really seemed like a different man than the crankypants old guy he was during the campaign. The McCain of the concession speech is a man I can respect, even if I don't agree with him.

you should totally print up that sticker. i'd put one on my car.

Man, I love the McRib.

Hey, are we supposed to gloss over the Giuliani prediction in the 2007 post? I thought the pumpkin was what Cinderella Palin's bandwagon turned back into on Tuesday night.

That sticker == EPIC WIN.

Looks like they let disposed of the McCain 2008 clone and let McCain 2000 come out of the basement for the concession speech.

I sort of had this guilty curiosity of how funny\scary a Palin administration would be (President Mountain Dew Camacho-ish).

Am I a bad person?

Halloween in my neighborhood suck in comparison. Yours makes ours seem as much fun as a Young Republicans mixer. We gotta move to a better neighborhood.

It is a new world when red and blue newspaper boxes can exist side by side. Thank you Obama.

Your son is right. Obama is articulate.

I love that cartoon, secretly that was what I wanted to do for a minute!

(sorry, I am in the reddest state, and I've had to listen to their crap for 8 years)

Your mother and I apologize for your lack of talent as an artist. Neither of us got past the stick figures either.

WTF! McRib isn't on the east coast. Heading west . . .

Posted by: e-Crave.com on November 8, 2008 4:43 PM

I had my first McRib on Wednesday, and I found it revolting. But I come here and find out that it's because I'm a Republican. phew.
