the president

i got chills. yes, i cried. when don't i? i just watched the swearing in of president obama. our first black president.

i love you and will support you, my senator. we'll disagree on so many things, but that won't change my love for you. our new president is just one of the first things we disagree on. this year isn't just a change for the presidency, but a change for us. you and i get to move forward together.

Feels pretty amazing, doesn't it? Even after watching it all day, it still feels crazy good.

yes. pretty damn amazing. here's hoping he can bring about the change we need.

The choice we had was this:

with lube
without lube

I firmly believe we're getting screwed one these two ways for the next four years, probably the latter.

And here I thought your Senator was so great. ;-)

Kidding.

He'll see the light.

It's a WONDERFUL time in America! I couldn't be more excited and more proud of this country!

whatever your political leanings, no one can deny the progress this country has made that was personified tuesday. as a southerner, it was even a tad bit more amazing.

and i cried.

and i have goosebumps just thinking about it this very second.
