(Whoopi’s) Words…

“I realized that for probably the first time in my life, in thinking about myself as an American, it occurred to me that this is really our arrival in the country that said everything was possible. We have finally become part of the fabric of the United States of America.” – Whoopi Goldberg on Barack Obama‘s presidential win. [wowOwow]

    Good for you, for the first time in my life I feel like I am not an American

  • Mike

    Then you probably shouldn’t be one.

  • afrolito

    I completely agree with Whoopi.

    I shed tears of joy last night.

  • Vinman

    Get over yourself chadnnocal! I had tears of joy last night, until it looked like “Yes On Hate” was going to pass.



    HOPE made a comeback and wiped Marriage Equality in California.

    @ #6,

    Er, I don’t blame Whoopi for “YES on 8” (or black people), I blame stupid backward religion and superstitious crap. I’m really, really glad Barack Obama won (I voted for him after all), but I’ve got to tell you all the anti-gay law in the country passing at the same time really sucked the joy out of Barack Obama’s win. This should have been a joyous celebration of the end of the Republican/Bush regime of right-wing nut-fuckery and a return to sanity and freedom (for everyone). Instead of freedom, our second class citizenship was enshrined in law.

    Don’t be surprised if people are bitter and unhappy.

    Ironic day.

    After the Obama administrations “disturbing” brief in support of the Defense of Marriage Act last week. DOMA allows states to refuse to recognize same-sex marriages, and denies federal benefits to married same-sex couples.

    Yes we can’t…
