“Ha jolly ha to you, young Stiffy. With knobs on.” I retorted with quiet dignity.

Obama (Massachusetts primary elections tonight)

We are choosing hope over fear, we are choosing unity over division and sending a powerful message that change is coming to America.
-Barack Obama

a beautiful image from Obey Giant.

For the past eight years I have been horrified and angered by this current administration’s human rights and civil liberty abuses; their war-mongering; their betrayal of the poor, minorities and the environment; their deliberate maneuvers to retrogress the country in humanist, cultural, educational, religious, economic and scientific realms; and the fear, weakness and apathy in fighting these offenses by the legislative branches, courts and public. It feels both exciting and vulnerable to dare to hope for change and progress in this country.

I do hope. I think that Obama is our best chance for real progress.

I see others hoping too, eg: thoughtful and well written posts by: Obey Giant, Aaron Swartz, Sandro and xkcd.
