morning in america

it really does feel like a new day.

those who know me have probably heard me say that pope john-paul (the one who protected pedophiles) made me ashamed to have been raised a catholic, and that w has been making me ashamed to be an american and thank goddess im a woman. (then caribou barbie came along but that's a whole nother story... maybe she'll go back to alaska and fall out of her helicopter shooting at wolves.)

i still feel the same way about the pope.

but i watched the crowds last night cheering for obama, faces of all shades and shapes. i watched the tide of blue creep across the country, i heard the pundits call the race. i saw obama take the stage, i watched old campaigners and children of all sizes weep. i watched the world react.

for the first time in a long time, i felt proud to be an american again.

and furthermore, the war, President-elect Obama, must end. blessed be.

and blessed be. It feels like a weight has been lifted. And now I finally feel proud to be an American. I understand exactly what Michelle was talking about.
