I removed my McCain/Palin bumper sticker…

As you may have noticed, I haven’t posted a blog since election day. I didn’t think it was really necessary to let everyone know that Obama won. I’ve been thinking about the blog, and I’ve been trying to decide what I want to do from here. Do I want to continue blogging as I have been or will I even be able to stomach keeping up with politics with the Democrats in complete control for at least the next 2 years? The thing about the latter is that I don’t know if I can stomach not keeping up with politics and current events. Those are things that I’ve been very interested in and kept up with closely for the last 4 or 5 years, and I believe it is important to do so. Considering that, I suppose I will keep posting on my blog as usual whenever I see a story that inspires me to do so. But you may see some extended periods of silence from time to time as I take necessary steps back every now and then to avoid frustrating the hell out of myself.

Anyway, as the title says, I removed my McCain/Palin bumper sticker. One of my pet peeves has been seeing people driving around with Kerry/Edwards or Gore/Lieberman stickers years after their losses, and I’m not going to be one of those people. I accept our loss, and I’m going to move on.

As I continue posting here, I believe it is important to show respect for our future president. For the past eight years, I have been absolutely disgusted by the pure unfiltered hatred directed towards President Bush and the ugly names that people frequently call him. If you want to say these horrible things about him in private conversation, that’s fine. But doing so publicly for everyone in the world to hear is a disgrace to our country. This was not simply appalling because I’ve supported many of his actions, but because he is our president and is deserving of the proper respect. I’m not going to suddenly reverse positions now that we have a Democratic president who I took a firm stance against during the campaign. He has been elected now, and he is soon to take office as our president and will be the leader and the ultimate representative of our country.

Let it be clear that I expect to disagree with many of the decisions he makes, and I won’t hesitate to criticize him for those decisions, as I’ve criticized President Bush for some of his. However, the criticisms I make on my blog will be made respectfully.

In conclusion, continue to enjoy (or loathe) my blog. I’ll be sticking around…unless I end up in an internment camp for dissenters.

Oh, come on! It was a joke!

    I’m going to leave the Palin half of the sticker on the back glass until a fanatic in Los Angeles breaks my back glass off in rage against the GOP.

    Haha, I can see that happening. The chances of that are better in San Francisco, though. The intolerant pricks up there stopped buying Palin Syrah wine after Sarah Palin was picked as the VP candidate. It went from selling very well to people reacting to the name with disgust and refusing to try it. And they say conservatives are elitists…
