The Limemonkey Voting Curse: "If I vote for you, you will not become President of the United States."
Today the curse once again reared it's ugly head--I didn't vote for Obama...and now he is our new President.
To Mr. Obama: YOU ARE WELCOME!
Even though I think this is a wonderful/historic moment for my country, I am also very fearful. I hope that Obama doesn't let us down, and I hope we don't let him down. By that I mean, I hope no redneck asshole tries to kill him.
Washington, and politics in general, is a nasty stagnant swamp--ANY change is always good change, so long as it has the people's blessing. Tonight this country has spoken, and we've decided we are willing to take a chance on change...and someone who is young and relatively inexperienced. While many of my older friends and relatives see youth and inexperience as a detriment--but as a young and inexperienced person, I believe that sometimes what is familiar and safe must be cast aside so that what is new and potentially better is given a fair shake.
I believe this because I am an American, and in America we always look forward to a better tomorrow, no matter how bad things may seem.
