Facebook: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Obama
John McCain got 46.3% of the popular vote, but you wouldn't know it from Facebook. As much as I got sick of political commercials, I got even sicker of all of the holier than thou notes and status updates over the last few days on Facebook. Here's a sampling of some of the worst:
“Fear always springs from ignorance."
Always? Really? Nah, sometimes I think fear springs from knowledge.
is sick of pessimistic Republicans. Obama is not a terrorist and our country is not going to fall apart. Bush did a good job of starting that process though.
Dems are the only ones allowed to express pessimistic opinions. Gotcha.
is in shock that Indiana is blue on this map. Well done guys, I guess you don't suck as much as I thought you did!
You "suck" if you don't vote the same I do. Typical liberal tolerance and diversity.
is confidence is restored. Americans still believe in an America where anything's possible, where merit and hard work trump money and connections.
As demonstrated by Obama's victory after outspending McCain by millions and millions. Okay.
is very, very sad for those uneducated enough to actually be afraid right now.
Again, only Dems are allowed to express pessimistic opinions. But how nice that the author is so caringly "sad" for those folks.
is in a state of bliss
Soon to be followed by a state of denial, no doubt.
I never thought I'd see this day. Ever. Now I'm wondering -- if Obama becoming prez is possible -- What can I do? Anything is possible.
You bringing meaning to my life. You're the inspiration...
is so happy! Wow McCain's supporters are classless aholes. I thought the popular vote would have more of a gap though.
Yes, it's gotta be hard for McCain supporters to reach the heights of class attained by Gore and Kerry voters.
NADER NADER NADER NADER NADER, SEE HOW ANNOYING YOU ARE.
You know it's bad when Nader supporters are calling you out for being annoying.

|So am I allowed to cut Obama exactly how much slack the Dems cut Bush? Oh wait... that would be racist of me. |

|"is very, very sad for those uneducated enough to actually be afraid right now."
I actually read that as the opposite...as in, "you're not educated enough to be afraid."

|Amen. I stopped going to facebook until after the election. It was disgusting. |
