Good clean fun

Yes We DID!

We were in tears on the couch. Even if you didn't vote for Obama, you have to appreciate the enormity of what has happened. I'm so proud of us for getting beyond the skin issue and voting for the man inside. It was an incredibly close race. Popular vote skirting just a hair on the Democrat side of 50/50.

I can't help but think of the ominous as well. Already there are reports of horribly racist things about this tremendous man. But he had to expect fallout. He has to be wary of his safety. I guess that's the price you pay for being the first black man in the highest office of this great (and slightly racist) land.

Congrats Obama. And congratulations America for, as my mother put it, "getting out of your own way."

But most importantly, I blame you, Obama, for the hangover I'm currently nursing.
