‘course it is. them’s real tears glenn beck is streamin’, don’t ya know? he’s crying over the state of this foresaken country, you shameless liberals! and all you cynical skeptic jerks out there…tsk tsk tsk. lemme get me my rifle…nah, hold up, lemme watch sarah on the box first, i need me a sweet dream tonight!

News like this makes me glad I don’t own a TV, so I don’t even flit by Fox even on accident. This line sure did make me laugh out loud!

Palin said in a statement that she is “thrilled” to be joining Fox, adding, “It’s wonderful to be part of a place that so values fair and balanced news.”

Its a truthism!

Limbaugh:

We believe that the preamble of the Constitution contains an inarguable truth: that we are all endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights, among them Life, Liberty, Freedom, and the pursuit of Happiness.

Colbert:

Of course, Life, Liberty, Freedom and the pursuit of Happiness is not in the preamble of the Constitution, its in the Declaration of Independence. And, it does not contain the word Freedom.

Which is why I’m giving a tip of my hat to Rush Limbaugh for changing the Constitution. The liberals all want it to be a living document. Well, Rush just took it one step further and made it a Wikipedia entry. He does not care what the Constitution says, which is final proof that he is the true leader of the Republican Party.

Just one, of course, among many excellent jokes on Limbaugh’s behalf…

And, on a completely different note, mmmmm custard filled Chinese buns. You are the Boston Creme Donut of the Far East. 😉

Finally, Inauguration Day is here! I’m watching it right now and its so beautiful I might cry. Change has come! His speech is so great, so simple but profound, not philosophical mumbo jumbo but straight, powerful words that he pronounces so well and speaks so strongly. He makes such a tremendous impact. I love his jab on Bush “We will lead once more!” :))

Other favorite parts…

“We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and HINDUS! And NON-BELIEVERS!”

He mentions Hindus! He mentions non-believers! Yes, yes, yes! That means so much to me, I can’t explain it.

“We will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist”

“A man whose father 60 years ago could not stand in a restaurant, can stand before you to take a most sacred oath”

So many more! I still have to take it all in and calm my heart. Here’s to hope! Here’s to change! Congratulations to citizens of America! Congratulations to all Obama supporters world wide!

EDIT: Last I checked this is my space, and no one is dragged here to read and comment against your will, right? While I am glad to hear any comment contrary to mine for the sake of debate, I won’t tolerate it if its rude and idiotic and baseless. You don’t have to agree with what I support or write, and if you make an intellectual argument I’ll respect that. But this is not for anyone to spout groundless and nonsensical rubbish dripping with the type of sarcasm used by the hopeless. That is not an argument, its petulant complaining by narrow minded fools who are throwing temper tantrums because they didn’t get their way. And this is not a platform where you can throw that kind of anger around. I will feel no obligation to keep those comments.

To the revellers: Happy Inauguration Day! Happy new President! The full text of his speech is now available on CNN…

I like her already.

While what she wore to the victory speech was a little “huh?” to me initially, i agree that the red dress in the meeting with the Bush couple was am.az.ing. Love it. (seperate article)

Can’t wait till she’s officially First Lady!

The United States of America has a new president! One that will change the country and thus change the world! Congratulations to everyone, regardless of whether you are American or not, or whether you were able to vote in this election or not. You have all witnessed this historical moment!

How unbelievable that a black president with a Hussein in his name stands before us and gives us a victory speech! Is this truly a momentous point in history or what? It is a sign that the world is truly changing, and changing for the better!

This article says it best how the atmosphere has been in HK and worldwide with this change 🙂

YES WE CAN!

I wish you all the happiness and joy that must come with this change!

I end with a few words from the ultimate American hero, the oh-so-dear-to-me Stephen Colbert 😉

Election Day is here and I can’t focus on a single thing! I’m on pins and needles and my stomach is all topsy turvy…reminds me of the time I took the MCAT (bleh…). But I’m positive! Positive that its time for a change, that the American people will make the right decision! We will be victorious!

“I’m reminded every single day that I’m not a perfect man.

I will not be a perfect President.

But I can promise you this: I will always tell you what I think and where I stand.

I will always be honest with you about the challenges we face.

I will listen to you when we disagree.

And most importantly I will open the doors of government and ask you to be involved in your own democracy again.”

YES!

GO VOTE! GOBAMA!

I couldn’t have expressed my fear and frustration and just my general ‘wth’ feelings any better. I mean, he’s an actor, a US citizen, raising a family, working hard, and he’s really questioning this whole situation, like we all should be. Everyone is invested in this election. Everyone should be wondering this same thing.

The election is drawing closer and closer, and I hope people are becoming smarter about the whole thing. I mean, really, can we just be plain sensible and think about this issue really, really carefully and objectively? Is Sarah Palin really the best we can do?
