Two Yummy Progressives

Bill Mahar touched on this last night when he mentioned how cool it was once again to be an American.
He's right!
No major nation on Earth has had the moxie and wisdom to elect a super cool, smart black dude as president.
Hey Germany, Great Britain, Canada, France, Italy, Spain, Greece, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China and all of you others, where's your cool black guy?
Oh, that's right, YOU DON'T HAVE ONE.
Yes, the same country that brought the world automobiles, telephones, electricity, the Internet, the personal computer, Levis, hamburgers, pizza, the Clapper, microwave ovens and ATMs has now cast off our unfortunate association with stupid, backward Republicans in government and replaced them with Barack Obama and his ultra cool wife Michelle.
We are back, motherfuckers, and we are cool again!
Even our new wave of pundits are super cool.
Take Rachel Maddow, Ph.D and her yummy butch lesbian outiness.
Even straight guys are popping wood for this smart and funny cable news dyke.
And when she's interviewing Arianna Huffington, another brainy, progressive, former Republican who woke up and came into the light--can it get any better?
Let's face it, Obama is bringing America's greatness back into the limelight again. No more need to sew Canadian maple leaf patches on our luggage when we travel overseas, we are cool Americans that even the French can love again.
Everything the founding fathers created when they defined America is coming true again.
We are a nation of inclusiveness.
We are free thinkers.
We are capable of learning from our mistakes and rebounding with change every intelligent global citizen can appreciate.
All we have to do now is stop the war in Iraq, create a new breed of reliable cars that run on air, stabilize the economy, clean up the environment, redistribute wealth so we can restore the middle class, educate our children better, provide universal health care, rebuild our crumbling infrastructure and remove tax loopholes and laws that allow the mega-rich and bloated corporations to avoid paying their fair share in taxes. Plus we need to allow all adult citizens the right to marry anyone they choose and we'll be golden.
Oh, and we also need to re-separate church and state, but how hard can that be when the laws already exist?
As an open-minded country, we gave the radical right-wing conservatives and religious crackpot fundamentalists a chance to rule and they did a lousy job of it.
Now it's our turn again.

i have a lot of hope for obama and his administration. i know there will be setbacks and disappointments - but overall i think this guy knows what to do and where to take us

my big fear is the obstructionists that will be there every step of the way -- the GOP is built and founded on stopping ANYTHING that is not theirs - even if it is right. even if the magic 60 is reached -- any senator can still stop a bill (look at what inhofe does all the time) and you will never get some of those red dog dem senators (like Nelson of nebraska) to always be on your side

but at least there is hope and positive thoughts - after 8 years of the worst administration and the most heinous people ever to run a govt - we can lift our spirits and heads up

Oh the things I'd do to and with Rachel if she'd only let me. Hubba hubba.

I have no doubt the online resources Obama used to win this election will continue to be used to his advantage.

I am so heartened by the simple fact that we will once again have an Administration that values intelligence. Living in a place where our "leadership" seemed to revel in anti-intellectualism was an embarrassment and so damaging to what we are supposed to be about.
