Four more years…
A picture is worth 47%
After only 4 hours of sleep in the last 38 hours, I am running on fumes. I don’t know, but I felt such a wonderful sense of relief after hearing that Obama made it to 270. At least women are safe…for now!
Last night my daughter stayed up with me, and she was very involved with the election results. She realizes both candidates suck, but she knows how important this election was to her, as a woman. I am so proud that she “gets” it!
As she was sitting here, she excitedly mentioned that she will be able to vote for the first time in 2016…and she said, “I hope it is for a woman.” I hope it is too. For all our daughters, grand-daughters, sisters and mothers.
You’ve got to hand it to Americans, they do love them some democracy.
With reports of voter turnout exceeding the 2008 elections in some states, there were a lot of voting heroes in the 2012 presidential elections, but the greatest of them all must surely by Galicia Malone from Dolton, Illinois. The 21-year-old new mother made sure she got to the polling booth to vote for Obama, even after her waters had broken. Bust magazine certainly thought so, they named Malone their ‘Badass of the Day’.
And what a lovely example for her new daughter, born on the day that Barack Obama was elected for a second term as President. “I wanted this to be a stepping stone for my daughter,” she said.
So here are a couple cartoons for you this morning…there is a kind of theme going here:
Who knows, maybe there will be no reason to worry about recounts…even with Turd Blossoms help.
Anyway, here are a few more cartoons.
Please post lots of links today, I just am too exhausted to see straight at the moment. Thank you to all you fellow Sky Dancers…you’re fucking awesome!
