Postcards From The Second Coming

The poor Missus came home from her book club this evening thoroughtly upset at the outright Obama-worship among her fellow members and their subtle but plain endorsement of the heckling poor ol' Dubya had to suffer during the inaugural ceremonies.

This struck a chord with me because earlier I had been thinking about the fact that I've still got my McCain/Palin bumper sticker attached to the ol' Jeep.

You see, I'm not one of those tongue-swallowing types who questions the legitimacy of the election or seeks to deny the fact that The One is now my President. Good luck to him, I says, and Godspeed.

At the same time, I've decided to keep my sticker as a protest against the mass hysteria that seems to have gripped the country. In my humble opinion, The One essentially sweet-talked his way into the Oval Office, whispering in the collective ear of the voters and promising them a magic carpet ride.

Well, okay then. Here we are. And here's the rug. I want to see the thing airborne before I surrender my skepticism. If we do, indeed, hurtle into the upper atmosphere, I will gladly admit that I misjudged The One. But until then....uh-uh.

As for the shabby treatment of Dubya by the Faithful? Shame. Shame. Nothing but shame.

Hear, hear, and good for you!

And, like you, I'm reserving judgment. You are my role model....*giggle*
