There is nothing i can say that i can say more clearly, concisely, or better than posting these few videos to be watched in succession. I have never been proud to be an American. But i am today.

  1. Actually, THIS is why I cried when he won:

    Holy. Mother. Of. Fuck.

  2. THAT is why i would have cried had he lost.

    I will, i’m sorry to say for it is not a noble thing on my behalf, enjoy greatly watching the post campaign unraveling of the Palin fiasco. It was such a clusterf, that at times i even felt bad for her. I mean, you offer a retard a shot at vice president, what are they going to say, no? It was his idiocy primarily that began all this. However, her refusing prep for the Couric interview is jaw droppingly moronic. Thank goodness. You should send Palin a thank you card. Without her, this might have been a lot closer.

  3. I heard several people decrying CNN’s recognition of the victory this is for American black people in general, and I simply have to disagree. We just elected a man whose parents couldn’t have married in a third of our nation’s states because of anti-interracial marriage laws (when they married). We just elected a man who would have been a slave when the Constitution was written. We just met a man who would not have been permitted to attend white public schools not too long in the past in much of the nation. It is significant for, among other things, THE FACT THAT HE IS (half-)BLACK.

    It is also significant for, among other things, our hope that he will bring intelligence and rationality back to our leadership, that he will seek peace and not war, that he is young enough to understand the nature of new media and the impact it can have on politics, and that, simply, he can bring new hope, vigor, compassion, and actual rational answers to real problems.
