yes we can?



YES WE MOTHERFUCKING GODDAMN DID. And it was all because of Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida and my very own home state of VIRGINIA!

OBAMA WINS!

What is this newfound feeling? Oh...I think it's what's been referred to as "patriotism".

(As someone who was viewing the election with a black family who had not-so-distant memories of segregation and kept a "Coloreds' Waiting Room" sign as a relic of the past, I can assure you that I sobbed like a little baby-bitch when they announced it.)

Not gloating is the hardest part! I want to say "IN YOUR FACE" to the few Republicans I know. But I won't, because I don't think that's what Obama wants, and today is HIS day.

My coworker ranted on and on yesterday about normalcy and how it is the social fabric of our society. He said we accept people who are normal and reject those who aren't. That's just the way this are.
Our 44th president of the United States of America is named Barack Hussein Obama. Nothing "normal" by all measures. HOW AWESOME IS THAT!!!

CHANGE. YES WE DID.
