Happy Thanksgiving from all of us here at S&R. Today we invite those of you reading (and really, don’t you have anything better to do?) to tell us what you’re thankful about.
I’ll go first. While I have much to be thankful for – a wonderful wife, the coolest dog alive, etc. – I find myself really appreciating the fact that for the next four years I won’t have to hold my breath every time the president opens his mouth. I won’t have to worry about his inability to speak in complete sentences, about whether or not he’s going to make up some new words, about whether he’s going to say something insanely stupid and embarrass us even further in the eyes of the rest of the world.
I’m thankful that, whatever mistakes and bad decisions he will make, Barack Obama is at least intelligent, articulate, witty and self-possessed.
