We DO need another hero

The video below is possibly the most powerful thing I've heard in a long time.

It's about the passing of Proposition 8 in California (and probably similar propositions in other states the past election day). Prop 8 was for a constitutional amendment that would deny homosexuals the right to marry. Basically, it changes the guarantee of equal rights for all to say that gay people can't get married. The equal rights guarantee is what proponents of gay marriage are using to legalize the practice. Now states are gradually changing their constitutions to eliminate that protection. I don't want to even consider where that slippery slope could lead.

So, without further ado, have a gander at an impassioned plea for some common sense and basic decency.

Keith Olbermann is definitely my Hero of the Week.

It was huge

I think it's easy to forget, a few weeks after the fact, that what happened on November 4th was amazing. Everything could change on January 20th, 2009 when Obama is actually sworn in, and he has to actually make some of the changes he promised.

In the meantime, let's keep celebrating.

That was close!

Look, I'm not going to get into a whole thing about something is in the past, but this video shows that the world is pretty lucky that America does not have another Republican administration en route.

Here's why:

There are other clips that talk about her tantrums and her shop-aholism. It's such a petty thing to do. McCain's staffers seem to be bent on blaming his loss on her, when really it's their fault for pushing her as an option. They were desperate to shore up a niche vote by running a woman on the ticket. Too bad they didn't consider that having someone with credibility might be more important.

For better or for worse...

Whether you are conservative or liberal, Democrat or Republican, or just plain indifferent, the fact of the matter is that this is a big deal.

Welcome to the World Stage, Mr. Obama.

I, for one, am happy to see you there.
