Meet The New Boss, WAAAY Much Better Than The Old Boss

I stayed at work long enough to hear President-Elect Obama (Wow, I can't believe I just typed that in) give his victory speech. I saw McCain's as well, saying that "the fault was mine" for losing. You knew that McCain and Palin were grasping at air in the last few weeks and could come up with nothing. Still, a very classy consession speech in all.

As for the new president, this speech was glorious. You could not want any less from an honoralbe man like you heard tonight. Obama reached across party and racial, young and old, all Americans tonight and I think he made his intention clear with this address. You could see the tears in the eyes of so many people in the crowd, including Oprah, who have come so far to get to this point and who thought maybe two years ago a moment like this would never happen and now it has. It's something like this that makes me wish my Mama was here to see this now. She would have danced in joy. Somewhere, maybe there's many a fallen hero doing that now.

Well, I better get home and get some rest. Wednesday is a brand new day. I got my gig back with more hours and loads of work to do. Plus, The View is on tomorrow. You know I'm gonna watch what happens now.

My guess is for Elizabeth, having lost some form of terribly planned bet, to be wearing an "Obama Mama" t-shirt for most of the show.

The alternative would be her choosing to wear the shirt on her own, but either way, hilarity ensues.

Seeing Jesse Jackson's eyes well up with tears...that pretty much did it for me.

If I can't have The Real Sam Johnson as my Commander-in-Chief, Barack Obama makes a pretty fine second choice.

Y'all don't want me a President. The whole country would would move to Canada. Plus, that whole Naional Gorilla Suit Wearing Day would kinda be manditory.

Yes, but there'd be a beat-up car in every garage and a lemonade/iced-tea Slushie in every pot. That's what I call prosperity.

I can't lie. I could go for a good Slushie right about now. And it's not like wearing a gorilla suit can make my chances with the ladies any worse than they are normally.
