I honestly never thought that January 20th, 2009 was ever actually going to arrive. It seemed like a mythical endpoint – a date that existed in pure fantasy, the day that we would all be rescued. Eight long, painful, horrible fucking years watching this country slide down the slippery slope of muck and greed into the abyss of neverending dark. Can this man stop the descent? Can he pull us up out of the darkness? Can he right the wrongs?
I have no idea, but I’d rather watch him try than anyone else.
