I Think Julia Sweeney's About To Have An Accident
Former Saturday Night Live performer Julia Sweeney has a blog that I have on my RSS feeds. She doesn't post very often but she has one that apparently she posted sometime this morning saying that she is breathing again over Obama getting elected.
Now, it's a foregone conclusion that I was an Obama supporter and have also been embarrassed to live in a country that TWICE elected George W. Bush to office, but some of these Obama-gasms still going on five days after the election are tripping me out.
Julia Sweeney was one of my favorite SNL performers though, so I'll cut her some slack that maybe she has been working on this piece for a few days and it captures some of the virtually indescribable elation that swept the nation - yes - let's say it this way - at 10pm Central Standard Time, 4 November, Year of the Common Era Two-Thousand-Eight.
Actually, on the subject, there was another scene that somehow came to mind that night, although I'm having difficulty translating it to this particular event - it was the scene in the original Battlestar Galactica episode "War of the Gods" when Count Iblis promised to deliver their enemy, Baltar and, as the promise was fulfilled Lorne Greene's Adama said, "This is an event unlike any we've experienced since the destruction of our civilization. Baltar's ship is reaching our quadrant and is being intercepted by an elite squadron which will escort the treasonous instrument of our holocaust directly into our hands. Word is spreading like sunbursts through every corner of the fleet. It is a jubilation unprecedented as Baltar is brought before the Council of Twelve. It is just as Count Iblis promised. Our enemy has been delivered."
Yes, if you can make the stretch, based on reports of many Bush executive orders about to be reversed, our enemy has been delivered ...
