Look, I am as excited as anyone about Obama getting elected, but the media coverage of this is starting to get absurd. I know that it is a historic moment, and I know a lot of the enthusiasm is relief that we are simply pushing C plus Augustus out the door into the dustbin of history, but the fact that the media is doing live, non-stop commentary on the train from wherever to DC is just ridiculous. Shut up, already.
You don’t have to be a bitter Republican to think the glowing media coverage is over the top. Protip: the economy is still going to suck on Tuesday at 1 pm.
*** Update ***
And while I am at it, let me also grump about the experience I had at several stores this morning. I don’t know if this is because everyone is cutting back employees because of the economy, but every store I went to this morning, I had to stand for 15-20 minutes waiting for help. In every case, I stood by a register waiting for someone to show up, in two cases after paging the help, no one showed up, and I said “To hell with it, I will order it on Amazon.”
Also, get off my grass, you damned kids.
