Hmm... that felt good.. President Obama! Yeahhh! I wept freely this morning, just from witnessing the energy and love emanating from the crowd.
I have a confession to make: Call me a masochist but the raging liberal that I am enjoys listening to Rush Limbaugh on occasion. I find it interesting to hear what he will come up with. How else would I find out what propaganda is shoved down half the country's gullet on a daily basis (and to think that making foie gras is considered inhumane.)
I also delight in listening to Limbaugh on days when things look very good for liberals, or very bad for conservatives. I like it when he spews toads and you can practically smell the putrid stuff coming from his innards. A day like today for example: he was outraged. OUTRAGED that the people who see themselves as green voting for a green president came in private jets, yes private JETS. Oh the hypocrisy of the liberal agenda.
Ha! I thought. Obviously, Limbaugh didn't get the memo about chilling the political bickering in order to put the country back on track. That is so typical of the conservatives, the...the...
Wait a minute.
Before Bush Jr, I felt no animosity towards conservatives. I felt animosity towards closed-minded bigots but when did I start to associate conservatives with bigots?
Listening to Obama's speech it downed on me that he wasn't just addressing the rest of the population. He was actually speaking to me. He was asking me to move forward, to burry the hatchet, to unite, to be tolerant, to work together with those who think differently than I do.
Have 8 years of Bush turned me into the female-liberal equivalent of Limbaugh?
If someone as intelligent (and good looking) as our new president can be magnanimous, shouldn't I try and learn from him?
I guess it's much easier to feel maganimous now.
Well... not entirely magnanimous just yet. One last good laugh via the Huffinton Post
