HOW awesome was John McCain's concession speech?
Answer: SO AWESOME.
He was so gracious and moving. Good guy. I liked when he told us to support Obama because he's our leader. I'm proud of him, and sad for him, but I'm okay with things. I already hate Obama less--my goal is totally working. I liked his speech (but that's not a surprise, he's an incredible speaker so I can't help it)--I liked that he spoke to ME (ie the people who didn't vote for him) and said that he would be my president too.
But the most exciting part was our major victory in California. I cannot tell you how proud I am of my state! My faith in my countrymen (statemen?) has been restored! I mean, who's on the Lord's side who? At least on this issue, over half of my pretty liberal state! The majority chose the right on this moral issue! I am shocked and relieved and surprised and pleased and happy and grateful. I'm so proud of my family and friends who worked so hard on that campaign. I am so proud of California. This is the SECOND time we've decided this--we do not back down. I'm trying not to be bugged by the facebook stati of all the people who were against it and are not gracious losers (they could learn a lesson from McCain...MAN they would hate me for saying that) and need vulgar words to express themselves. Or the people who are mad at Mormons, or the Mormons who are mad at the Church. I don't care. They just don't know what I know. Some of them SHOULD know, but they don't understand what I understand.
(I hope that awful ad smearing our nice missionaries hurt their campaign. It should have. Oh ignorance.)
I'm feeling so good--I think I need to go watch a youtube video of Bill Pullman's speech in Independence Day.
