Obama's Second Inaugural Address, and my Evolving Tears of Joy

On Election Night, when-in spite of the supposed worst performance in the history of human debates, and in stubborn defiance of the “likely voter” model of Rasmussen and Gallup, not to mention the prognostication of Ann Coulter and Dick Morris-Barack Obama was officially declared the winner of Ohio, and in effect the Presidency, I cried.

An Open Letter to Young Voters

Look-I get it… For you guys…. voting is soooo 2008.

If a coalition of the President, Gays, and illegal immigrants, went back to 1930 (via the Delorean) and killed Hitler, who would the GOP credit!?!

I think there is two likely options here: 1. Republicans credit the (1989-1993) NBC show Quantum Leap and/or the movie Back to the Future for  inspiring the operation. 2.
