ATTENTION, PLEASE:

As of noon eastern standard time, today, my country ceased to be lead by a fuckhead with the IQ of a trout who couldn't pronounce 'nuclear'. For further communication, I may be found dancing on the couch.

Thank you. That will be all.

Hooray. Now I can finally begin to stop worrying about my friends still in the military. (or about getting sent out again myself)

And the fact that we live in a country where you can openly proclaim it??

PRICELESS!

Long live freedom of speech!

(and my veriword is "maners". S'pose I should mind mine?)

A great, great day. I got up at 3:30am to watch. I would never usually do that but I couldn't miss it.

nothing else so became george w. bush as the way in which he handled his side of the transition and rode off into the sunset.

what a shame he didn't show that class and grace in the rest of his actions.

and now, back to my own dancing for joy, made even sweeter because, having just retired from 4+ decades of newspapering, i'm now free to express my political views at the top of my lungs, wear them on my sleeve (chest, actually), put my money where my mouth is, and all those other things most americans are free to do and take for granted.

Congratulations on the sudden collective outbreak of good sense at the bginning of November - those of us in the Rest of the World thank you, and were dancing right along with you...

I think US expat comedian David Fulton said it best at the "Bye, George" comedy gig in London on Monday night: "I'm not so much excited that he's the first black president. I'm just excited that every time he talks, when he's done, I understood every word he said."
