This is how I feel this morning.

I feel cracked open.

To continue the Les Miz theme from yesterday:

I know Barack Obama is a politician and like any politician he'll fuck something up in no time or he'll pander to the center or be otherwise disappointing somehow.

But this morning, in a country founded on the unwilling blood and muscle of my people, Barack Hussein Obama (because, that middle name is nothing to be ashamed of) was elected president.

It's a good feeling. I think I'll just bask in that glow for awhile.

Yeah, they all fuck up eventually, but history is the true test. Jimmy Carter looks better and better as time goes on; at the time, he was considered the ultimate fuck-up. But you know, he didn't get us into an interminable war, and he had plenty of opportunities. Comparing him to Shrub now, he looks like Winston fucking Churchill.
