Let’s Not Get Ahead Of Ourselves

In the run-up to Obama’s inauguration, tomorrow, I’ve heard some pretty mind-numbingly absurd things.

Yes this is an incredibly significant event, based on what he happens to be, not in the least the person he is or the job he will do. What if he resumes business as usual once in office? I think a lot more hesitancy is desperately needed, people.

Keep it in perspective. With all do respect, he has not changed or accomplished anything, yet. Least of all anything he was elected President for…

He’s merely won “The State Lottery;”

“Does it seem strange to you? The confetti. The balloons. The mile-wide grins and the victory dance to welcome in the heir to a state of (utter and complete) disrepair? Because it sure seems strange to me: they’re acting like they won the fucking lottery! I mean, shouldn’t they feel terror at the task that lies ahead: to feed and house the people that this system’s left for dead. And could I have hit the nail much harder on the head?”1

He’s one helluva job ahead of him. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves…
