Sunday, November 2
Not to jump the gun, but when we wake up Wednesday morning, things are going to be different for us liberal bloggers.
Waking up in a nation where you like the President. Kind of a high.
And yet it will be very different. It was so very easy to hate George W. Bush. We could, and did, use the biggest brush in the world to attack him.
Enjoy that little "If he were my bush, I'd shave him off" flash on my sidebar, ma hunnies. Its days are numbered.
I hate to say this before the party begins, but our support of Obama is going to require a fine detailed brush. I'm glad we have time to figure out what this "relationship" is going to look like.
As happy as I will be to watch Obama win this election, this blog will not become a house organ for the Obama White House.
I will support and fight for what I think is right. There will be lots of opportunity to go to bat for the policies of our new President. (One hundred times: I don't take the results of this election for granted.) That said, if President Obama pursues further crapo like telecom immunity or dragging his feet on closing Gitmo, I won't hide my disgust, and I will fight him.
We're so much better off waking up to a President Obama. I look forward to the work ahead.
A personal note: I almost always forget my blogiversary. I'll have been blogging for four years this Tuesday. It's been the most amazing four years in my life. Thank you for sharing it with me.
