The long election just got longer

Now that it seems Obama is joining McCain in his party’s winner’s circle, we now are going to have to look forward to these two men taking pot shots at each other for eight months. Phew… I hope we don’t have to listen to too much of Mama Michelle Obama (I like the original Mama Michelle better.) This new one gives us rhetoric like this: “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m really proud of my country . . . not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change.”

Myself, I preferred the moon walk. But maybe Michelle was a kid then. I’ll have to look it up. [What about the Michael Jordan Dream Team in the Olympics?-ed. I guess she didn’t like that either. Not enough “change.”]
