Wild in the streets

By Michael J. Smith on Tuesday November 4, 2008 11:14 PM

All the yelling and horn-honking is keeping me awake. I haven't heard anything like it since I happened to be in St Louis in 1964, when the Cardinals won the World Series. Of course there are also five or six police helicopters hovering overhead, just to make sure that the high spirits don't get out of hand. I don't think the cops really have anything to worry about -- but they do love the flak-jacket theater of it all, don't they?

Will there be fewer police helicopters under Obama? Personally, I doubt it.

One does wonder just what all my noisy, happy, law-abiding neighbors are expecting. Wrong question, probably. They're mostly just glad that the Other Team has been vanquished, and that someone they think is a person like themselves is going to take over.

I do feel a bit pleased, actually. Of course I would have been pleased either way. But the "I told you so's" will have a much sharper, sourer taste, after all this sweet euphoria.

At least now we can get back to killing brown people for their oil with a clean conscious.


the job will make the man....
over and over and over

already he calls for
patience at home
and followship abroad

we need to begin the hot footing


"The road ahead will be long,...
Our climb will be steep.
We may not get there
in one year or even one term, but America -- I have never been more hopeful than I am tonight that we will get there. I promise you -- we as a people will get there."

Rahm Emanuel as COS. Time to crank up that euphoria.

Or read Sam Smith. http://prorev.com/2008/11/can-we-talk-about-real-obama-now.html


as usual puts his finger on a personification
of the bad barky
ramh has no peers among House rodents
in the zionic touch hole of empire departmentif mr E gets
the nod
as chief of staff infections.....????

well ...let's just say ...it bodes massively ill...

one can imagine
a guy like rahm
even after bathing
only a brief while
in executive politics
leaving quite a nasty grease ring
around the white house tub

Note also that comments with three or more links may be held for "moderation" -- a strange term to apply to the ghost in this blog's machine. Seems to be a hard-coded limitation of the blog software, unfortunately.
