So. Barack Obama.
I watched the news last night–I watched the play-by-plays, the projections, and all those people with all their opinions. I watched The Shield, too. I watched the speeches–they were great. I was just glad to see McCain and Obama being so sweet to each other. Made me feel all warm and toasty inside.
But the thing that stands out most in my mind was the music: more specifically, the music that was played at the end of John McCain’s concession speech–did anyone else catch that? Poor McCain, walking off stage with his wife and a teary-eyed Sarah Palin…an emotional crescendo of string instruments–is that?…Could it be? It is! Star Wars! Why, it’s the very music that was played when Anakin Skywalker became Darth Vader, and Obe-Wan Kenobi went into hiding. It struck me hilarious.
I crack up just thinking about it.
