The election is finally over, and The Messiah has been elected. I had known for at least two months that McCain didn’t have a prayer of winning but now that it’s official, well, it pretty much sucks. Actually, it’s not truly official until the Electoral College delegates vote and they could ignore the popular vote, but that’s not going to happen. So, Obama is our new Lord and Savior, with his truckloads of “hope” and “change.”
I was watching the Twitter and Friendfeed streams last night as the networks called the election for Obama, and then while McCain was conceding. The comments from tweeters and friendfeeders was nothing short of embarrassing. You people who voted for Obama don’t realize what you’ve done to our country. I’ve said many times that McCain was an awful candidate, but he would have been a hell of a lot better for the country than Obama. It will probably take a year before the extent of the damage is truly visible, but at that point, it’s too late.
And, for the record, I don’t give a damn what “The World” wants. This was our election, not “The World’s.”
