Jan. 20, 2009
This country still has a long way to go if we are to meet the standards we set for ourselves two and half centuries ago, but today we hit more than just a milestone...I would even say we're "over the hump". I'd like to think we are finally in post-racial America. Yes there are still some racist asswipes hanging around but I believe they are the minority....as Haney likes to put it.....I can't wait till those old fucks die off.
We still have some major mountains to climb in the civil rights landscape...gay rights, misogyny, religiosity and it's nasty manifestations (with the exception of Voudon of course)...but today we deserve a collective pat on the back.
The Eels said it best, "You're goddamn right its a beautiful day!"
