PRESIDENT OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  

Oh, my freaking god! I am still grinning like a lunatic... I am so happy! What a great night! Everybody at the Taproom was having a blast. It was like the Phillies won again every time Obama pulled in another big state. Ohio! Virginia! Florida! And best of all our own Pennsylvania!!! And by a decent margin! Everyone counted down the final thirty seconds til the closing of the west coast polls and then CNN called it!!! Obama wins!!!! We were roaring! What a beautiful night! I'm getting a little wet in the eyes again just thinking about it....

When I was your age, sonny, we wore our asses on our heads!

And we were grateful!

I'll admit it, I cried at 11 when they called it and I cried during his speech. And I'm still weepy today. For a change, HAPPY TEARS! FUCK YEAH!!!

Amen to that! I think I got my first tear when I saw that tear running down Jesse Jackson's face.

oh man, I was riding my bike as the last of it was being called, reveling in the hoots and hollars coming from every house hold I passed. It was beautiful...

Kansas was...a little less red than Nebraska, at least...
