Well, it appears as though we dodged a bullet.  I’ve never been happier in my life to be wrong.  Like I said in the lyrics to Magic Beans:

Yes I do believe there is still a chance

This is not certain to be the last dance

But I cannot do this all on my own

So get off of your ass and go pick up a stone

And come out in masses and take to the streets

And throw all those rocks at those liars and cheats

Get off the couch man, get out there and fighting

I know they can’t beat us if we stand united

I know they can’t beat us if we stand united

I know they can’t beat us if we stand united

But it is certain that our race will be run if the convince everyone that they’ve already won.

If they convince everyone that they’ve already won

If they convince everyone that they’ve already won

We can’t let them convince everyone that they’ve already won!!!

 

Tonight, America we stood united and now nobody is convinced they’ve won.  I’ve never been prouder of you, or prouder to fly my American flag in front of my house.

 

Tomorrow, the work of reconciliation begins.  I’m looking forward to the challenge, and to enlightening the wisdom-challenged among us.  Onward and upward my brothers and sisters.
