Barack Obama is the nominee. Hillary is making her case for VP. Tomorrow I'll tell y'all about the one time during this campaign I entertained the thought of switching allegiances on the whole "Remember The Sisterhood" premise, but right now I'll just say I'm pretty stoked. Don't get me wrong, I loved the primaries. They reintroduced a national mindset softened by years of focus-grouped ad copy to: Marx, Christians who are crazy in a non-homophobic anti-intellectual cynical way, white Catholics who preach at black churches. Bill O'Reilly hosted Hillary Clinton amicably, I learned the origins of the term "shuck n jive," venerable feminists were forced to confront their latent racism and venerable liberals their latent misogyny. Ann Coulter believably endorsed a Democrat. Scott McClellan and Jenna Bush came publicly close to endorsing the black Marxist former cokehead, while at times a certain former Reagan speechwriter came publicly close to giving him a blowjob, and a certain loyal and proud spawn of Richard Nixonland himself agreed: it's time to end this shit.
