Finally …

It’s been a long time coming.

I felt outrage in 2000. I felt swindled in 2004. And to be honest, I feel sincere redemption in 2008.

There’s more work to do, but this is the first step.

Update: Man, super props to Mike. From 4 years ago….

Obama in 2008 is one of the few chances the Dems have. They need someone with charisma, not a qualified candidate.

Update 2: Man, Shipley! GAS WAS $2 FOUR YEARS AGO!

Gas prices would not be at $2.00 a gallon had Clinton not raised gasoline taxes by 18.4 cents per gallon. His tax increase and the increased gasoline taxes levied by the states, while under his administration, pushed gasoline taxes to over 50 cents per gallon.

    After Obama’s acceptance speech my neighborhood went crazy. Fireworks, honking horns, people taking to the street and carrying on.

    If I hadn’t been watching the election update on TV I would have sworn the Redskin’s won the Superbowl.

    The man is inspiring.

    You can’t apply for citizenship just ’cause they elected your guy; what will you do when Palin wins in 2012?

    A pretty cool night. I ended up voting for Obama despite disagreeing with him on a bunch of stuff because he is so damn sexy. Also, our foreign policy is pretty much already set regardless of who wins and Obama’s tax plan is probably marginally more responsible than McCains. Nor do I want Palin one melanoma away from the Presidency.

    Otherwise, voted a mostly R ticket, with one Libertarian and one other Democrat thrown in for spice.
