Hand it to the Onion to find an unexpected (to hilarious effect) spin on what some people think is the biggest breakthrough in the country since women's suffrage. Instead, it's business as usual:

Yes, I have decided to join the masses and finally do a post about the elections. Here's my fast, terse (well as terse as I could ever be) summary of observations/thoughts regarding this year's elections:

  • I think I must have been one of the few people who, up until and beyond the moment of McCain's concession, was researching DES encryption instead of fast-clicking the refresh button on an election results site.

  • I have never been in a location where so many people audibly started celebrating when the results of the election were finally announced. I wasn't following the news when it happened, but I knew instantaneously the outcome of the elections.

  • I now know *exactly* how many of my neighbors have firearms, and who had to settle for using leftover fireworks from 4th of July

  • Tonight I feel sorry for the following people: policemen, parents with easily disturbed babies, and anyone who has to get up and go to work tomorrow before noon.

  • I haven't been this excited about an election since John McCain first announced he was running for President in 2000 (sadly, my excitement went away when he decided not to run). The irony is, this time around I didn't plan on voting for him.

My congratulations to anyone who supported Obama, and my fondest hopes that he will continue his record of bipartisanship for those who didn't vote for him.
