Once the last results came in and the last politician gave the last acceptance speech last night it felt like the entire country exhaled. Regardless of political views, just knowing this election is over was a huge relief.
True, some were upset, many were excited, but nobody really knows what to do now that there aren’t any political commercials on the television. What, we’re expected to want to buy things again? How am I supposed to know who to hate now?
And what’s Saturday Night Live going to do now? They’ve been so much better these past few weeks.
Who am I going to make fun of now?
Will people still be able to falsely call Obama a Muslim? Will horny 14-year-olds continue to fantasize about Sarah Palin?
Like I said, huge exhale.
Now I’m worried that when Obama can’t fix the world in a few months, people are going to become disenchanted and McCain supporters are going to say, “I told you so.”
But McCain couldn’t have fixed it, either. There’s just no way to prove that, now.
But according to South Park, it was all part of a scam to steal the Hope diamond. I respect that.
