It is false that kings are entitled to the eminence they obtain. - William Godwin
It is not like we had one fuck of a lot else to do on an early November night. Last night Sonja and I poured the wine and watched the election results stream in from the far corners of a country I was fond of before Ronald Reagan and his wish they could wear SS uniforms in public backers ripped the heart out of America like Dr. Frankenstein.
Sonja asked me, as things began to become clear, "They have turned on the Texas Shit, haven't they Beer?"
I told her, "I can hardly believe my eyes. Just when you think America has run plumb out of sense they do something that makes sense. Next thing you know the motherfuckers will decriminalize pot before Canada does."
Sonja asked, "You want one more glass before bed time?"
I was already just about seeing double and I was having trouble keeping the vomit down when I burped but I answered, "Sure. And get a bottle of the good stuff from the back room. This is a night to celebrate."
To the good people of America: I know I give your country a hard ribbing now and again. You fucking deserve it. Your country has so much power and it has been exercized so wretchedly. But tonight the world hopes you have turned a corner in your history. And the world needs all the hope it can get. We got places to go, good places. Why don't ya'll get back on the ice and get out of the desert?
Good morning America! How the fuck are ya?
