The slackers did rise, and Obama won. Hey, young people, I'm proud of us.
A black man was elected president. Even a few days later, I'm still a little in shock.
I cried along with so many others during his speech, and I believe this is a new era.
Enough of the feel-good comments: Let the Christian backlash begin. Check out the Christian School Journal (I can send you the link) for a good snapshot of evangelical reactions across the board. I left an anonymous comment, although it hasn't been approved yet. Once it's up, I'm sure you'll have no trouble figuring out which one it is.
Really, I'm proud of us. I've wasted a lot of time on the NY Times interactive electoral map, and I was fascinated by the county numbers. Every major city in Texas went to Obama, and almost every border county went to Obama. Georgia was even more interesting, as several Atlanta-area counties went Obama and my home county did, too.
So yes, it's a new era. I hope we can be unified, even those who believe that Obama is a baby-killer...
