To all the conservatives bitching today:
I've listened to your crying through your radio hosts, your cable news channel, your blogs and I know that you think your at fault for not going even further to the right.
And it only makes me laugh. (I do hope the rumors of a New separate Neo-Con political party are true). There's a good line from when Truman was running for President and speaking to a group of farmers, who at the time generally voted republican, and said "How many times do you have to be hit by a hammer before you look up and see just who it is that's hitting you?"
When your kids ask you about when the first black man became president are you really going to answer "Well, we were pissed that this socialist, Marxist, terrorist, inexperienced Muslim was gonna come in and destroy the economy, safety and country we had just spent the last 8 years FUCKING UP!!!"
But there is something to look forward to..I know you think that people will see the results of a democratic presidency and it will swing back in your favor, but If you really thought this was true perhaps you shouldn't have spent the last 8 years letting Bush set such low standards for future presidents.
Enlightenment can be a beautiful thing, but its so much better when the rest of the world joins in.
