An historic night

So the country swings to the Democrats in a big way and the first black president of the US is elected. Personally, I was hoping that milestone would have been achieved by someone else; Condolezza Rice perhaps? Thomas Sowell would have been ideal were it not for the fact that he, quite sensibly, would never want such a misfortune as the presidency to befall him.

Anyway, I do agree with John Derbyshire (for a change!) that Obama is a sort of Jimmy Carter-lite. Welcome to the 70's, Part II! Time to dig in and try to hold the line as best we can for the next four years while America gets what it asked for. Here's hoping there wasn't too much voter fraud in Penn. and Ohio. It's bad enough to lose on the merits without having to worry about the Chicago Democrat machine rigging the bloody election.
