I should just give up all attempts at blogging and just auto-post every day -- "Go read Stoaty. Go read Iowahawk."
Absolutely no analysis you read or hear in the immediate aftermath of this election will be accurate. Except this one, of course. Duh.
It's also heartening to realize that as president Mr. Obama will soon be working hand-in-hand with a former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard like Senator Robert Byrd to craft the incoherent and destructive programs that will plunge the American economy into a nightmare of full-blown sustained depression. As Vice President-Elect Joe Biden has repeatedly warned, there will be difficult times ahead and the programs will not always be popular, or even sane. But as we look out over the wreckage of bankrupt coal companies, nationalized banks, and hyperinflation, we can always look back with sustained pride on the great National Reconciliation of 2008. Call me an optimist, but I like to think when America's breadlines erupt into riots it will be because of our shared starvation, not the differences in our color.
While you're at it, read Lemur King & Treacher. Or look at some swell pictures at lizard brain. And don't get me started on the whole Palin-trashing thing.
