Obama Two-fers McCain

A landslide it was not, but a victory with significance nonetheless. Barack Obama will be our next President of the United States. He gave an incredible speech, bringing not only Jesse Jackson to tears ("Why not me?" Was that what he was thinking?), but a few thousand folks in the crowd.

It was probably the best speech I've heard him make.

John McCain was gracious in defeat. I'm infinitely grateful that the twit wasn't allowed to speak. I hope she vanishes from the national scene and goes back to Alaska to look out her window and dream of a romantic rendevous with Putin.

It was interesting to hear the McCain crowd boo Obama and to hear the silence when Obama mentioned McCain. Kind of how the whole campaign season went: McCain throws sucker punches, Barack bats them away like pesky mosquitoes.

Overall, a great night for America.
