Coriolistic Anachronisms

   

Wow!

Obama wins the 2008 US Presidential Elections

8:30 pm. People are cheering in the street! This is not even a US city, it’s Vancouver, Canada!

As per all major US networks, Mr. Obama has already won the race, and set many records. When the hang-over subsides, reality is going to kick in harder than ever. The man will have very small shoes to fill, but an immense load to carry. He is going to need a serious set of muscles, and a mind of steel.

But for the first time in a long time, it seems he, at least, can actually pull it off.

‘nough said. :-)

For now, I’ll just join the world and smile.

Update: And a very smart, impressive acceptance speech to top it all off. I love the way he brought the whole world into the equation. The man has such charisma he could be an actor. Damn I wish I hadn’t said that. ;-)

    The general elation over here is palpable.

    You are lucky to witness it all first hand. History is usually so ugly, but today her pretty face is refreshing and invigorating. Enjoy the bubbles! :-)

    I still have some bubbles, reclining in the fridge as we speak, with silver spoon to keep them bubbling. MIT writes from Downunda, you know :-)

    Estorbo is starting a petition to get a cat (black of course) into the White House. He says without a cat to purr Obama through the bad times, history cannot be written happily.

    LOL, sorry MIT, that obvious fact had eluded me…

    Estorbo: good idea. A black cat in the White house. Are the mice gray?
