No matter what you think about our next president (or our current president depending on when you read this), change is a coming.
Change can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on how you look at it. For example, Lindsey Lohan used to be straight, now she is bi – or gay. This is bad because now millions of 13 year old guys will have to find some other ‘material’ to rub one out…. Although, maybe not I guess…. (although, hopefully her next girlfriend will be cuter). This is GOOD because now the male population will be spared from whatever STD she is carrying at the time. My money is on the herps.
Anyway, back to the monumental day. The thing that I find most interesting / exciting is that it truly is a rags to riches story. I know that his race is getting a lot of airtime – and it should. However, I honestly thought that going forward you’d have to be part of some political machine to become president. Barack Obama has shown us that as long as you are an intelligent person anything is possible.
My wife’s new superintendent said, when being told that my wife was ‘golden’, “great, now actually do everything that you said that you could and you’ll be platinum”. That really applies here as well. I think everyone can get as giddy as Paris Hilton during a Fendi clearance sale, but it will be up to Obama to actually follow through. I hope he does. And hey, if he doesn’t, at least I’ll get to complain to my brother in law about “his” president. “Andy Bernard doesn't lose contests, he wins them or he quits because they're unfair.”
