Well, I’m off to see the wizard. Not the wizard exactly, I’m going to watch Senator Obama make his acceptance speech. I’m taking my kids with me so they (Dante at least) will remember the moment.
Even if Obama doesn’t win in November (I hope like hell he does) tonight is important for me and for millions of others. My dad grew up in the segregated south, and now my son gets to see an African-American become the Democratic nominee for president, on the anniversary of the “I Have A Dream” speech. Some of us never thought we’d see this day come, but here it is.
So, I’m off. No one’s going to rain on my parade today, not even this bitch:
Someone should totally slap her.
