Deep in the heart of the South...

...suburbs of Chicago. Out to dinner tonight with my wife's family. When the Obama bashing kept going for a half hour, I held my tongue. Finally, I said, "I'm not going to vote for Obama on Tuesday." I got confused looks. "Because I already did." Early voting. When my meal was served, one of them actually said to the server, "No, wait, he ordered Chitlins."

I'm not kidding. The stupid fucker actually said that.

I said, "You can be ignorant, if you'd like. I'm not going to attempt to reason with someone who gets all of their information from chain emails, and never bothers to ask whether there's any truth to them at all. But I'm not going to keep my kids around that kind of racist shit."

The fact that this election is even close is because of people like this.

That's really ugly.

I'm sorry.

Oh, honey.

I'm so sorry.

Good on you for standing up for what's right, though.

Well, now you can order "crow" for them at the restaurant.

80% of this country is white. That is what the statisticians say. The majority of them voted for Obama.

I was in NYC on election night, and the image of tens of thousands of smiling, hopeful, multi-ethnic faces in Rockefeller Plaza will forever be etched in my memory.

We made Obama's election a reality. His election - a man of mixed ethnicity, at once comfortable in the world and utterly representative of 21st century America - has, at a stroke, refreshed our country's spirit, and has reversed our image abroad.

This is what your children will grow up with. This makes me happy.

I would write something clever here, but my brain just froze.
