The world reacts to Obama's win

This was probably posted here weeks ago, but I just came across it, and I think every good liberal will love these photos!

1. I was Skyping with a friend in Iran the other day.

He is resolutely non-political, and dislikes discussing political subjects. But at the end of our call, he asked me: "Now, I need to know: who did you vote for?" - As if he couldn't guess from my political leanings - I said: "President Obama, of course!"

He and his girlfriend burst into applause.

He thanked me, and told me he thinks President Obama is very charismatic (no argument here). He doesn't blame the President for the sanctions that are currently making life difficult in Iran right now. He remembers, as I do, that B*sh fucked it all up with his idiotic "Axis of Evil" bullshit; and that if it hadn't been for him, Iran and the U.S. might have much closer relations now.

I'm so proud to have Barack Obama as President right now. I love seeing the joy on the faces of people around the world as they feel the same. He isn't perfect, but if you hold your breath until we have a perfect President, you will turn a very disturbing shade of blue...

2. Saw "Game Change" recently (highly recommended)

I had forgotten the many thousands of people in Berlin who came to hear him speak in 2008, and who chanted, "O-BA-MA!!" over and over. It was mind-blowing!

4. And they are coming out with another "Game Change" about the 2012 race!

Can't wait to read all the dirt, and then see who they get to portray Romney, Queen Ann, Ryan...

5. The rest of the world likes Obama and knows the GOP is up to no good,

so why can't American conservatives get with the program? Every time I think about this, I'm left banging my head against the wall.

8. Because they are infected with some sort of brain/soul/heart disorder...

for which, sadly, there is no cure.
