OMG REM-Obama-flashback

Posted on November 29th, 2008 @ 20:38 in Uncategorized

Let me just blog this here, cuz tonight was the first time I’ve come across an REM update since the election – POSTCARD FROM THE DAY AFTER THE ELECTION (R.E.M. MySpace Blog).

This is significant cuz when I went to see them I was in one of my “he’s so not gonna win” phases. And they were quite certain he was. And during the concert I was all “oh man I wish I had your optimism!”

So reading this has got me all emotional again!!!! THEY WERE RIGHT, HE WON, WOOOOO!!!!! 😀

(forgive me. this morning I thought, sadly, that I can’t really get emotional about his win anymore. now I know I still can. 🙂 )

Dunno, somehow I just knew he’d win. McCain simply sucked.

😕 Bush sucked way more and he still won. 😐
(well, wether he legitmately won or not, he ended up president anyway *lol*)
For a Republican McCain really didn’t suck that much. Palin did of course.

And Obama was young, inexperienced, black, a “friend of a terrorist”, too liberal, “un-american,”… there were so many “reasons” not to vote for him. I know now I underestimated the American people, because I didn’t believe that this was going to be different.

I still can’t believe it. Which is why I still get these highs. 😀
