Ah, bless…

Tonight, let’s rejoice.

President Obama disappointed me in so many ways before he was inaugurated – of which the invite to Rick Warren was just the visible peak.

No doubt during the 4 to 8 years he will be President, he will disappoint me many times again: he is a conservative/right-wing Christian, who would never earn my support if he were a candidate for office in my country.

But: George W. Bush is no longer President. Dick Cheney is no longer Vice President. No last-minute pardons were issued to save either of them, or Bush’s administration from prosecution for their crimes in office.

And an intelligent, thoughtful, painstaking man who’s already achieved so much, is today President of the United States. That’s something in which to rejoice, whatever else may come.

Yay.

…in her own good land here she’s been abused,
She’s been burned, dishonored, denied an’ refused,
And the government for which she stands
Has been scandalized throughout out the land.
And she’s getting thread bare, and she’s wearin’ thin,
But she’s in good shape, for the shape she’s in.
Cause she’s been through the fire before
and i believe she can take a whole lot more.

Well, there’s things that never will be right I know,
And things need changin’ everywhere you go,
But ’til we start to make a move to make a few things right,
You’ll never see me wear a suit of white.

Ah, I’d love to wear a rainbow every day,
And tell the world that everything’s OK,
But I’ll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,
‘Till things are brighter, I’m the Man In Black.

  2. George W. Bush is no longer President. Dick Cheney is no longer Vice President.
    Really? I mean, I know there’s been an election and an inauguration and stuff, but somehow it doesn’t feel real…
    Damn, 8 years is a long time. This will need some getting used to.

  3. Hey, Bulbul! Long time no see.

    It feels like watching the West Wing. It doesn’t feel real yet. Sooner or later, I suppose we’ll get used to it…

  4. Boy did he fool you!

    He isn’t a conservative right-wing Christian at all…..he’s a far left Muslim who thinks there are 57 states in the Union and has no clue how to govern a nation.

    And there isn’t a thing wrong with being a Muslim – only the fact that he lied about being Muslim, knowing he would not be elected had he disclosed that fact any earlier than he did to the Egyptians.

    • he’s a far left Muslim

      I’m sorry, Sally: the moron thread is this way.
