Buddy, look, you’re totally over-thinking things.
I didn’t vote for Obama because I actually believe that he’s going to wave his magical “change” wand and suddenly make all the ugliness of the past seven years go away. I voted for him because, after some careful consideration, I concluded that he is the least likely of all the major presidential candidates to do something horrifically shitty while in office.
Yes, friends, I am that cynical. And memo to Obama: you don’t want me endorsing you in public, dude. I don’t exactly resonate with the audacity of hope.
