*does the Snoopy dance*

Also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Manderpants! And Hodgeman. And Jason Jones.

ETA: My sister just called Rachel Maddow annoying. I don't know if I can talk to her ever again.

“We the people, in order to form a more perfect union.”

Two hundred and twenty one years ago, in a hall that still stands across the street, a group of men gathered and, with these simple words, launched America’s improbable experiment in democracy. Farmers and scholars; statesmen and patriots who had traveled across an ocean to escape tyranny and persecution finally made real their declaration of independence at a Philadelphia convention that lasted through the spring of 1787.

The document they produced was eventually signed but ultimately unfinished... )

Rachel put this on her show today and I thought it was excellent!


You can see that video and more like it at markfiore.com


Guys! Barack Obama set my voice as his ringtone! That's very sweet of him.

I caucused! WOOO! It was my first time, so I was a little nervous. I had no idea what went on at a caucus. Did you have to drink the blood of puppies? Sign your soul to the Democrats forever?* Declare your alliegence to dead gay headmasters? I didn't know. Well, they didn't make me do any of that. This is what I did have to do.

Here's Christina's experience at the Washington Caucus )

I liked getting to meet all the people there (THERE WERE A LOT! GO DEMOCRACY! WOO!) and hearing what they had to say. I happily wore my Obama sticker to the grocery store later, and stuck my sign in the car window for the ride home.

This sounds dorky(not that I've ever cared about being dorky[what's with all the parentheses in this entry?]), but it made my day brighter to know that I was part of the process. That I did my civic duty.

But, hey, it's probably not as dorky as my Yay-I-Got-My-Ballot dance, when my ballot came in the mail in 2004. And WAY less dorky than my I-Just-Voted-WOO-WOO dance that I did after I voted for Kerry.

ETA: HA HA. Guys, I typed this entry up in Semagic HOURS ago and thought I posted it, but apparently not. Anyway, here it is now. And in case anyone was curious and didn't already know, Obama won in Washington, Louisiana, and Nebraska today!

*I proabably would have been okay with that.

Here are a few icons inspired by the awesome Obama video and the wallpaper [livejournal.com profile] slodwick made today.

And I made a couple of Keith Olbermann icons that I thought I'd throw out there in case someone wants to grab one.


ETA: Am I the only person who's geekily excited about Extra Super Duper Tuesday?

Guys, I love this video. It's shown up a few times on my flist, so I'm sure it's shown up a few times on yours, but in case it hasn't, I'm posting it.

CHILLS! And I got all teary.

[livejournal.com profile] geekgirlofdoom, I found Obama's speech from yesterday on YouTube.


At 34 minutes, it is a little long, but it doesn't feel like it. And it's totally worth your time.

GASP! John Kerry, you utter slag! I can't believe you'd cheat on Edwards like that.

This has nothing to do with that, but is both the sweetest and creepiest thing I've read in a while.

CNN Debates = Awesome. There were some very good questions, and some clearly insane people, but I enjoyed the whole thing. Plus, there was Andersnark. FABULOUS!

In super squeeful news, I got my tickets to the Las Vegas Star Trek convention today! I'm getting very excited about it. 17 days! *bounces* My mom and I are doing a Star Trek bingo thing that I think will be fun, and my mom is getting photos and autographs with Casey Biggs and Connor Trinnear (OMG TRIP!!!!). I'm getting my photo with Avery Brooks (BESTEST CAPTAIN EVER) and autograph from Wil Wheaton. It's gonna be the highlight of my summer.

I don't think anyone on my flist is going, but if you are, OMG LET ME KNOW!

I don't know if I was more excited to get the "David Hewlett is your friend" email or the Barack Obama one. I think it's Barack. I don't know if that makes me dorkier or not. You decide.

I have to remember to turn on the sleep setting. It's pretty cool getting texts from you guys all the time, but when it's 4am and your phone goes off and it sounds like the TARDIS, you get a little confused.
