Elated, exhausted and still wired up and fired up from last night's electoral and popular vote victory for our POTUS, the first thoughts I had this morning were about the unending meme steam those of us in communities of color had to endure through-out the entire election season.  

Yeah. I am sittin' here gloatin'.

All the TM lame-stream concern trolls masquerading as pundits have now proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that they suffer from anal-rectalitis.

Let's see.

Remember all the "black people were gonna abandon the President" themes?

Yea, those Latinos sure don't show up to the polls.  


Don't forget the ignored Asian-Americans and Native Americans.

More very loud guffaws from my mouth.

As a Sistah, want to thank all those Republican legi-rapers for motivating women of all colors to say NO WAY to Willard.

Too tired to do a sophisticated analysis of the numbers right now. I'm sure there will be plenty time in the days to come, and the yapping class has already started their inane babble this morning, so I have turned off the teevee, and sit here chortling with glee.

Thank you and muchisimas gracias to every single person who got out and voted against a solid wall of Tea-Republican efforts at voter repression and chicanery.  

Yo Romney...I know you are a religious dude.

Well, so are many of us and there is an old saying in the black community:

"God don't like ugly".

That's right.

She doesn't.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
