Your time is up…..

How come since Obama won the election and McCain gave that gracious concession speech, I have heard nothing about ole Mac but Sarah? That heffa who at first shunned the press is now out there for us all to see with her hillbilly ass (bitch, we know you ain’t giving back all them clothes including Todd’s new gear).

Seriously, its annoying and I know my boy, Big Man over at Raving Black Lunatic wrote about it as well today, but I had to add my two cents but why won’t this wench go away? Its like at the end of Ferris Bueller, which is one of my favorite flicks when Matthew Broderick’s character tells us the show is over. Sarah, you were on the losing team, seems no one bought the little hate express road show except for folks in states that my Black ass never plans on visiting. No, Arkansas trip for me anytime soon despite the fact I still got family there.

Way I see it, Mizz Sarah, tasted that national kool-aid and got stars in her eyes, problem is she was on the losing team, now if it was me and I had the GOP talking greasy about me, I would slink my ass back to Alaska and deal with my life and put this little episode behind me. Shit, she got all those kids to care for plus little Bristol’s wedding to plan, or is that off now? I mean Levi might just be a stand up kinda kid and still follow through but why wait? Why not get married before the baby arrives? Ok, I’ll stop with the questions.

Anyhoo, I am just sick and tired of hearing about Sarah and suspect I am not alone, Sarah, take your ass home and stop talking to the media, you are irrelevant. Go shoot a moose or something.  Or as Flava Flav would say “Your time is up”.

He did it!!!!

Last night as the numbers started to trickle in, when Obama initially just had 3 electoral votes to McCain’s 8, for a brief moment, I thought shit, they will not let this man win. I got discouraged, yet as we all know now, things quickly changed, yet in the back of my mind, I kept thinking about 2000, we all know how that went. Thankfully the days of elections that never end and need deciding by the courts seem to be behind us at least for this election.

 It wasn’t though until I saw and heard John McCain give his concession speech that I sighed and actually let it sink him that the next president of this country will indeed be a Black man. A country that not all that long ago used to treat Black men lower than dirt and still has lapses of this bad behavior. A country that was founded on the premise that Blacks were inferior and were forced against their will to provide the labor that helped to make America the great country she is yet as a people were denied their humanity.  We have now come full circle, Black folks will inhabit the White House and they won’t be serving anyone. (damn, Michelle and the girls are amazing)

I’m gonna be honest, I have been crying buckets, I’m crying for all who never thought we’d see this day in America. A ceiling did indeed break last night, shit Barack put his foot on it and broke that ceiling down. I have no idea how successful he will be as a president, but based off his track record, it seems that everything he touches turns to gold.

I must admit that even this morning, I am still choked up, I suspect I am not the only one feeling that way today.

Congratulations President-Elect Obama and family. I have no idea what the future holds but today, I just celebrate this victory.

It’s showtime

To say I am anxious today, would be a great understatement. The magnitude of what this day means to me as a Black woman can’t even be put into words. I woke up at 3 am thinking that today is it, we will see what this country is all about. The polls say Obama will win, well I know polls aren’t always accurate but I will say that I hope those polls are right.

I am almost too emotional to write, but I will say if you haven’t already done so, go out and vote. I actually voted last week, I had initially planned to vote today but decided to do it early.

Anyway, I am taking the day off from all work, should my boy win, tomorrow might be a bust as far as work too, since I may be hanging over from joyous celebration.

See ya tomorrow!
