May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.–Mal Reynolds

November 5, 2008

I congratulate Senator Obama on a race well run. I congratulate him for being a historic figure–the first African-American President of the United States. I congratulate him for being an orator who convinced the larger group of voters to vote for him.

I congratulate the American people on a great election, and for yet again proving that we are the greatest country in the world, passing on power peacably and orderly every four years for more than 220 years.

I hope President-Elect Obama lives up to the hopes of his followers. I will post nothing negative about him on this historic day. There’s time for that later–apparently for almost four and a half years.

Senator McCain, who was my fourth choice, ran a fine race. He left nothing on the field. He fought hard. Governor Palin did an amazing job in the face of terrible adversity. Those are the breaks.

    Glad to see you’re alive and well. 🙂 Here’s another interesting tidbit: More than 17,000 people in Missouri voted for Nader. Oy. Rich S. told me that in Philly, there were write-in votes (1 each) for Fidel Castro, T. Boone Pickens, and the Necro Butcher (a semi-professional wrestler). Sometimes things are very wrong. 🙂

    I thought McCain’s concession speech was constructed completely out of class. Folks in the audience shouldn’t have booed, though. Not cool on either side.
