We decided, as a collective whole, to "follow the wrong god home."
I wish I could be as amazingly gracious as John McCain was in his concession speech last night. He was truly genuine in every word he uttered. That touched me. I honestly didn't think he had it in him, and I'll bet more than half the country and 99% of the mainstream media didn't think so either. Good for him.
I unfortunately cannot be as gracious, knowing all that I know about the President-elect and the many lies, misinformation and omissions of truth he utilized to get where he is now. Sorry. That's just how I think and feel right now. And those of you who are supposedly so adamant about "free speech" and people's "choices", let us see how "tolerant" you are in reality.
And if, as this radio interviewer suggested, Obama's going to be "coming after" the likes of Jill Stanek and those of us who report and write as we do here, well, who would be abusing power now?
It was true in recent years with the Republicans, it was true of the first two years of Bill Clinton's presidency and it will be especially true now with Obama that:
"Power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely."
~ Lord Acton, British historian.
Even if Obama could resist (and I don't believe he can), Pelosi/Reid and the Democrat-controlled Congress won't be able to.
