What I’m Thankful For

November 27th, 2008at 12:20pm Posted by Eli

o That America finally and decisively rejected the Republican politics of hate and fear to put an intelligent (albeit not progressive) Democrat back in the White House after eight years of corruption, incompetence, and outright malevolence.  (Parenthetical Note: Anyone who describes Obama as The Most Liberal Senator Evar automatically and permanently forfeits their right to be taken seriously.  This is not subject to appeal.)

o That our intelligent (albeit not progressive) Democratic president will have a Democratic Congress to work with for the first time in fourteen years.

o My totally awesome girlfriend who loves cheesy horror and action movies.  Also ninjas, pirates, robots, monkeys, Vikings, and Omar Sharif.

o The Giants won the Superbowl!

o The Giants and Jets are both Superbowl contenders, which is not only awesome in itself, but also means they’re on TV a lot more often.

o That technology keeps getting smaller, cheaper, and more powerful every year.  My cellphone is roughly twice as powerful as my first PC, by almost any measure.

o The opportunity to frontpage regularly at Firedoglake, where I can be read by more than 20 people.

o My excellent and intelligent readers here and at FDL.

o My camera.

o This commercial:

Yes, it still cracks me right up.
