And Our New President Is....
Neither of the above people.
According to several major news channels, it's the same as the last President!
And I haven't been so relieved since Snapple introduced Go Bananas!
It means we won't have a leader who wants to overturn rights gained by women, gays, and gay women.
It means we can stick to the relative sanity of a man who does not practice ivory-tower politics and isn't nearly as familiar with flip-flopping, pandering, and bad ideas as his horrid foe has proven himself to be.
It means you actually read my current column about the need to avoid endorsing a glorified used car salesman for President!
So thank you, American people!
In reading me, you saved all our futures.
I mean, if we had to usher in a Romney administration, I would have felt like Endora when they brought in a new Darrin!
(That observation alone would have had President Romney shrieking that I shouldn't be allowed to get married.)
So yay, Obama.
But it would have been nice if the channels occasionally referenced New York State and how many votes it was pulling in for the Big O, instead of just painting it blue on the map and leaving it at that.
I know we were a big "duh," but some details would have filled in the picture, newscasters.
