Hasn't Sunk In.
I didn't think I'd see headlines like this any time soon. After eight years of Bush, I've been conditioned to live with a really shitty status quo. In short, things suck and they will not get better.
But as Dylan observed, things have changed. How oddly unnerving that Obama will do more good in his first month -- simply by virtue of the fact that he is not a horrible, petty person -- than Bush "accomplished" in eight years.
Heaven knows what the rest of the term holds, but what's happening now -- an undoing of a great injustice -- is not small beer and I, for one, am delighted.
...See this, too. It's wonderfully succinct.
