Obama...wins? All other options exhausted?

I'm the first to admit when I'm wrong. I usually try to wait until it's long past relevant.
This whole election campaign I did not expect Obama to win. In a campaign that preached issues but gave Sarah "Are you fucking kidding me?" Palin goin' rogue, you betcha, it seemed hard to conceive that the personal attacks, the smears, the untruths, and race of both the candidates would slant the contest towards McCain.
And I was wrong about that.
When the crisis came along (that would be the economic crisis, not the prank phone calls to Andrew Sachs by emaciated Q-tip headed fuckhead Russel Brand) I did fully expect the States to retreat to old, white and grumpy as the safe choice over the younger, smarter and blacker Barak Obama.
And I was wrong there.
And I'm happy about that.
If you're going to be wrong, hope to be wrong about the worst happening.
And as Churchill said, you can always trust the Americans to do the right thing, after they've exhausted all other options.

Obama victory sparks celebration, praise around globe
