Reflections On 2008 Election




Reflections On 2008 Election




It is now truly over


the 2008 election.


So roll over in the clover.


The election, the election.


Just take a break.


No need to stay awake.


What a Dem procession


In this greatest election.


It is pure perfection!


The Bush days are numbered.


So give a great big cheer.


Barack is now unencumbered.


The change, the change


For John McCain


Still home on the range.


The change, the change


For Barack Obama


D.C. address rearrange.


For all the others in the race


You're down and out.


You're in disgrace with losing face.


Let it go, let it go.


Let it go, let it go,


The evangelical politics show.


From near and far


Scare tactics were heard.


In every American beer bar.


They drank Cindy's beer


And they talked and argued


But in the end the choice was clear.


America had made its choice.


No Republicans in D.C. offices


It spoke with a mighty voice.


No more scare tactics now.


And no crying in place


Since you lost the race.


But Obama is smart and kind.


He still needs your help


For the coming financial grind.


So put away all the buttons.


Throw the scare tactics away.


Here comes another work day.


Put on a very patriotic face.


And concede your deserved defeat.


Exit the Bush play with some grace.


Help make the transition easy.


Buck up, buck up, buck up.


Now's no time for queasy.
What an historic night! I haven't shed tears of joy like this since America in 1960 declared John F. Kennedy president-elect at 3:30 A.M. on Wednesday after the Tuesday election. God bless America. God bless Barack Obama. Now let's go to bed and get up to the first day of the presidential transition.

John Kennedy was my favorite all time president. He is heads and tails above the rest in my book. Not that President Lincoln was a slouch, but Kennedy had the magic Lincoln lacked.

Interesting you mentioned JFK...that's how I felt last night and this morning watching the recap. I think we are in for interesting times and have good hopes going forward! Something I haven't had in awhile.

Joann: Thanks to your vote Virginia showed its love toward Obama. A message has been sent from the American people.

Small issue in your posting.

It is Barack, not Barak.

Thanks for pointing that out to me Stamperdad. So many new things to learn now. Even how to correctly spell his first name! Barack with a "c" in there, not Barak. I haven't really seen his first name in print that often. He seems to have become a one word person like Elvis or Madonna or Sarah. I know, I know, I'm giving a lame excuse for misspelled name. Joann
LOL!

Yay! What a historic day--it felt good to know that my vote finally counted when Virginia went blue!

Well, actually, I am a little queasy. But that's from a case of stomach flu that I am hoping will be gone, gone, gone by tomorrow :)

Loved your poem!

My favorite part was the "home on the range" line :)
