FUCK YEAH


I checked as soon as I woke up.

Like most of you, I'm sure, I can't even express how excited and relieved I am. It looks like we're not out of the woods on the idiotic right-wing Christian ballot measures back in California, but at least the big race was won.

P.S. As usual, the Onion nailed it: nation finally shitty enough to make social progress.

No. Today, all people of goodwill and intelligence have a free pass to shout "woooooo!" as much as they want.

I'm sure I'll go to sleep sometime, but I'm not sure when this high is going to wear off!

I stayed up too late last night cause I couldn't stop smiling and reloading the news to see "Barack Obama is the President-Elect of the United States of America." WOOOOOO!!!!!!

Woo hoo!!!

So, tell us more about how you and the Parisians celebrated!

I am so excited by this that containing the celebration to the US simply will not suffice. I want to share in the collective excitement with the rest of the world.

Holy crap. I think it's at least as much relief as excitement, but there is this glimmer of hope I don't think I'd even thought about in a long time. Even just the idea that I won't be embarrassed every time the president opens his mouth on the world stage takes such a weight off. I'm hopeful that the previous administration was a part of fostering the culture of willful ignorance that's taken root, and that the man in the street may once again start to appreciate critical thought. But that's too much to put on Obama's shoulders today...

DV: bars in Paris were packed until the official result came in at about 5am, at which point massive celebration and rocking out ensued. It should be noted that, per B, a spontaneous parade also happened back in scenic Santa Cruz, CA.

As for me, I was asleep, because I was too terrified to watch it happen in real time and was prepared to get it one way or the other on waking.
