Play nice, now

There were two small but striking moments in the speeches made by McCain and President-Elect Obama last night. McCain was, yes, the epitome of class and graciousness in his concession. But when he referred to his opponent, the boos erupted. (And I think there may even have been some raspberries for Miss Sarah... ha!) Then in his address, Obama thanked McCain for his service and the crowd in Chicago ... cheered. That says a lot about us and the campaign the President-Elect ran. He really is all about reaching across aisles and working together. Repiglicans? Not so much...

So while there's something to be said for cooperation and kinship in the pursuit of shared and higher goals, here's a little rudeness to keep it real. 'Cause you know what? Fuck those assholes.
