Obama’s picked Biden. Woo. I was really hoping for Sebelius (Democratic governor in Kansas! She can get stuff done with Republicans without becoming one– she could teach Obama a thing or two.) If I thought I saw a flying pig, I might’ve hoped for Clinton. But no, we’ve got a fauxgressive old while guy. What a change.
I’m feeling a lot like this, right now.
I’ve never been a member of the Democratic Party; I’ve never been a partisan. But I have always voted for Democrats, and I always felt marginally in tune with the party. Now, I feel completely distant, completely detached. This, I fear, will only deepen that divide.
At some point, I’m going to be incredibly angry about that. But at the moment, I’m not even angry. Not yet, anyway.
In this moment, I just feel incredibly sad.
In fact, I just identified myself as an Independent instead of a Democrat on a survey, for the first time ever. Canada’s looking better and better.
