Woo hoo!! Yes we did!!

Well, at least one election on this continent went the right way. Yay Obama! What a man - I can't wait to see how he does, considering the freaking mess that the village idiot is leaving him. There was a really moving scene tonight in Chicago - the Reverend Jesse Jackson, tears pouring down his face when Obama was declared. I'm not a huge fan of Jackson - I think he tends to go a little overboard on the rhetoric, but how nice for him to see a black president, something he's worked towards all his life.
And the funniest part of the night? No, not Sarah Palin, amazingly enough (but lucky her, coming away with a $150,000 wardrobe!), but Washington university students congregating on the street in front of the White House and serenading Dubya with the chorus of 'hey, hey, hey, goodbye!'.
Too bad Canadians weren't smart enough to get rid of our right-wing idiot a couple of weeks ago. Oh well. It's a minority - his time will come.
Rather tellingly - when McCain did his concession speech and mentioned Obama, the crowd booed. When Obama mentioned McCain, the crowd applauded the man himself. There would be the difference between Republicans and Democrats.
