I love this cartoon (NZ Herald - 6 Nov) it speaks volume of the change in direction in American politics.
I can deal with most things: Global warming, Credit Crunch, Energy crisis but there is no way I could have handled another 4 years of ultra-right wing conservative American leadership (of our world).
Stayed up all night to watch the results and eventually got to bed after watching the acceptance speech at around 6:10am local time. Great stuff. It was a bit of slow day yesterday but I'm back up to speed today.
