Yes We Did

So read the dozens of bootleg Obama t-shirts being sold outside Grant Park last night, where Alma and I watched Obama win and accept. The excitement when Obama carried Pennsylvania, and then Ohio, and then Virginia, and then the west coast states that put him over, will be something I'll remember for years to come. It's a step in the right direction, aptly summed up by the New York Times:

"Barack Obama won the election because he saw what is wrong with this country: the utter failure of government to protect its citizens."

Now the question is: will his opponents be relieved or disappointed when America doesn't transform into the world's first radical Muslim Communist state? I have a hunch it will be the latter, which the wiser of that chastened bunch will realize is one big reason why ... they ... lost.
