he has a great voice
That is all. Also, woo.
Here's to the new free world!
great result but i bet he is assassinated before the end of his four year term, lots of redneck middle americans are going to be very pissed off at this
LOL at McCain getting booed at his own concession speech. Obama will probably break 350, and they can't cope...this is just incredible, historical stuff.
Such a historic occasion and I respond with a DiS meme. That's really funny.
and booing the idea that it was all his fault that he lost.
just wtf is wrong with these people.
but in summary PICK THAT OUT! shitheads.
I thought it was very dignified, and rather moving...
Utter, utter cunts. Honestly, given that kind of crowd, I'd WANT to lose the election...
but there are plenty of douches who dragged the campaign into crackpot territory
nice guy, too willing to get caught up in his party (and party supporters') bullshit.
Great send-off though. Shame about his supporters.
his speech was fantastically generous. he must be glad to see the back of that crowd and their ilk.
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO AAAAAAAAAARRRRGHGHHHHHHHH WOOOOOOOO YEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH
i'm still up. Night was a bit anticlimactic as the big party at the union was fully booked and kicked people out at 3 anyway.
Dear remaining few dissers on here: I have a 9 oclock tutorial. Should I
- sleep now, go to it
- stay awake and go to it
- sleep through it and get some actual sleep so I can work tomorrow afternoon and enjoy fireworks night properly
you can decide this minute detail of my life. I have faith in you. Hope for change. Yes you can.
i will record another important video message tomorrow night
It would be loooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnn-g!
I have a lecture at 11 but since it's important and getting out of bed is the hardest thing I do I'm staying awake.
i'm looking forward to it
he should let everybody know..
i am exceptionally pleased. i was so worried that there might be an upset!
BBC MOST EMAILED:
1 Golf secret not all in the wrists
2 Full text: Obama's victory speech
3 Obama's victory speech in full
4 Obama wins historic US election
5 President Obama and the world
and I have to say that he is EASILY the most competent, engaging and impossibly noble politician I have ever seen in my lifetime
it's truly astounding that anyone could manage to run such a clean and successful and professional campaign as this
and to be able to mobilise so many disenfranchised voters is a feat worth applauding in itself
I REALLY , REALLY, REALLY, REALLY hope he is bulletproof
Good to see they made the right choice. Stayed up until about 2 last night watching it, couldn't cope for much longer.
Comments on the BBC coverage: Generally good, especially Christopher Hitchens, who they should have on more. Ricky Gervais was a waste of time though, they went a bit ITV putting him on there.
BEERS ON MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
it's all he contributes to any discussion about it 'Those Americans - they love their guns. He'll be shot. I wonder what odds the bookies are taking. Probably better off betting on first bullet location.'
I GET IT ALREADY
as I write this post to the other guy I work with (who just walked through the door).
OBAMA - HOW PRACTICING MY PUTTING HELPED ME BECOME A SCRATCH PLAYER
Cheers for sharing.
my friends in the US are absolutely fucking delighted, and deservedly so
it's more to do with change - and the end of the Bush era.
It's like 97 - but on a grander scale.
It's a day to embrace it.
lol @ her
i'll remember this day forever.
a lot obviously following the states falling one by one upstairs but even more drunken fuckers in the bar downstairs cheering 'obama' when the ones upstairs started cheering...then carried on smoking joints and making out..
then for Obama's acceptance speech they all gether upstairs in a druggy haze staring at Obama's face with necks craned upwards...screaming YES WE CAN!!
In fucking London.
I imagine Munich was like this
was well worth it though.
he totally got some.
