The situation in this country was pretty bad four years ago, too. Everybody I knew supported Kerry. Everybody I read on the internet supported Kerry. And yet, “they” sent Bush back for another four years. With the sadly predictable outcome.
Last time, Kerry was the usual rich white guy that always gets elected. So are they going to allow a black guy who nobody has ever heard of to get elected? Doesn’t seem likely.
Steph and I went to a nearby community center, right next to the dog park where I take Polly every day, and voted for the black guy. It was the first time in Steph’s life that she was old enough to vote for president. A couple of hours later, Obama and his wife and his two cute daughters are standing in Chicago, preparing to move into the White House, along with the new puppy.
So, apparently, it’s safe to pay attention to politics again? Holy cow.
