OMG, I'm too wound up to sleep - Drinking from the Fire Hose — LiveJournal
and trying not to drown

Subject: OMG, I'm too wound up to sleep
Security: Public
Location:Home and on my corner of the couch
Music:Obama on CNN
I'm overjoyed. President Barack Hussein Obama.

I'm watching CNN and listening to Obama speak. I've read interviews and seen him on commercials, but this is actually the first time I've ever heard him speak. I can't listen to the annual State of the Union broadcasts without getting nauseous. I'm stunned as he isn't having that effect on me. Not at all.

I am so hopeful for the nation.

Secret Service, do your job. Please. We NEED this man.

As I was watching this I kept having the thought "Man, those SS guys earned their Maalox tonight."

Talk about your seminal moments in history. :) This ranks right up there with Neil Armstrong and the fall of the Berlin Wall.

*sigh* Wasn't so much thinking it during the speech, but have been thinking it a lot. I really want him to die of extremely old age. So far what is it, two assassination plots already foiled?

I'm going to spend the next four (or, I hope, eight) years praying for Obama's Secret Service detail to get all the lucky breaks.
