Jetta mentioned two days ago that the Democrats were going to have a party on Election Night, but she didn't say where the party was going to be. That was too bad. I could use a party tonight! So, on Election Night, I cruised past Democratic headquarters in Sacramento, but no party wasn't there. Nevertheless, I coincidentally drove past the party in full swing, on J St. near 13th, so I stopped by.
I wore my Obama 'Believe' T-Shirt, festooned with campaign buttons. I almost never wear this T-Shirt - too provocative with its quasi-religious aura. I picked up this shirt at an Obama rally at Bonanza High School in Las Vegas, NV, on October 25, 2008, and if there ever was a more suitable occasion to wear it than this place tonight, I can't think of it!
The crowd prepares for Obama's Victory Speech. Mitt Romney was an excellent candidate - the best the GOP could possibly offer in 2012 - but I am confident that, with continuing demographic changes and the continuing and worsening extremism of the GOP, that I will never see another Republican President in my lifetime. George W. Bush was the last link in that line of tyrants. The GOP doesn't even know it yet - self-knowledge is hard - but the GOP is as dead as Tyrannosaurus Rex. Say buh-bye everyone!
