FINALLY ... !!!

It's felt like this day would never come. It's just dragged on and on and on ... it's taken forever ... it's felt like we would never get rid of that chimp-faced warmongering idiot. And if we, the semi-mythical Rest Of The World, have felt like that, imagine how the Americans must have felt! Imagine how it must have been like for them - if we've been feeling like we couldn't turn on the news or open a paper without seeing his ugly mug, think about those poor saps, who really literally couldn't! At least we've got our own politicians to take the focus off. But the Americans, they've been stuck with their crappy media and their even crappier president. How they must have suffered. I shudder at the thought. But FINALLY, those awful days are behind us. FINALLY, we're leaving that valley of woe. FINALLY, we can all join together in a joyful chorus and say ...

BYE, GEORGE!!



I'm not saying that from here on out we will all be swimming in milk & honey. On the contrary - as always happens in American elections, they're really just trading one right wing nutcase for another right wing nutcase. But intelligence, integrity, respect, humility, a top level education, a varied background and the ability to actually learn from one's experiences ... these are good things. That's all I'm saying. They're good things.

Plus a gorgeous smile, a sexy voice and general hotness never hurt anyone. Just sayin'.

Congratulations, Americans!! For those of you with properly functioning brains (I just ran across a couple of you without them, in the BookCrossing Chit-Chat forum - like, omg lolz!!) it must be a great source of pride to know that the world is watching you today ... and for once, not cringing in embarrassment or shouting in anger. I personally will be glued to my TV set. Today is a historic day, and I'm so grateful to be allowed to experience it. We should all be. It's a small step, but it's progress. Congratulations.

I think you're overlooking a very important fact: millions of Americans voted for the guy (twice!), and millions of Americans still like him. The difference between Republicans and Democrats isn't as big as European news media in general, and Norwegian news media in particular, would like us to believe.

Um ... if you'd read my posts about the election back in November, you'd know that I am painfully aware of that latter fact, and that there is absolutely no need to point it out to me. Like, if you'd read this: http://leishacamden.blogspot.com/2008/11/election-day.html
If you read today's post more thoroughly, actually, you'll see that I already know what you're telling me. Trading one right wing nutcase for another right wing nutcase ... ?

As for the fact that lots of Americans voted for Dubya and lots of them think that they like him (most of them actually don't; what they think they like is a figment of their imagination, a publicity creation) - SFW? They're idiots, and they were wrong. Democracy doesn't really work when the majority of the population is undereducated and constantly under- and misinformed. And then the next question is, in whose interests is that ... ? but that's another story.

Today I'm just happy to get rid of monkeyface. Screw his voters, to be honest.
