I never thought I'd say this, but Fox was my channel of choice last night.
We were at Rustico, and they had CNN and Fox and MSNBC (I think?) on. Plus football. It was more TV than my brain was equipped to handle. Plus they kept doing all this animated analysis of stuff, and it made me a little dizzy.
Fox, however, Fox worked for me.
The state information on Fox was the easiest to understand. I suppose it's because it's TV for dumb people - and simplification of the information worked in my favor.
It was also deliciously excellent to see Karl Rove up there eating a shit sandwich as they called state after state for Obama.
Suck it, Evil.
And, to be filed under wtf? - what was the deal with Anderson Cooper and the hologram man? The sound was off on that TV, and I really didn't understand what was going on. Way too "Help me, Obi Wan Kenobi" for me. But maybe this is because I am old.
I listened to McCain's speech and thought, wow, this is the man I used to respect. Lucky for us he turned into such a huge sellout, but I did used to respect him. Then I noticed Palin looking like she was holding back tears. And I was maliciously delighted.
And when Obama spoke, I cried. It just couldn't have gone better.
Bush can go back to Texas and ride his bicycle or whatever it is he does. Palin can give back the $150,000 of campaign clothes and get back in her Carharts and negotiate trade missions with Russia from her porch. And McCain can use the time he now has on his hands to figure out how many houses they have.
And Obama can start to repair all the damage wrought during the past eight years of mega-greed-fueling asswipe loseriness.
I feel like we've redeemed ourselves in the eyes of the world. I feel like things will really start to change for the better.
The world is just a warmer, friendlier, rosier, more hopeful place today, isn't it?
