Over it

So we have formally elected Obama president. Whichever side of the fence you landed on this election, you have to be thinking "Thank the Lord that's over."

I'd like to make a formal plea:

No more Obamanations of the English language.
No more Obamaniacs, Obammunition, Obamathmatics, Obamatron, Obamantras, Obamachines, etc.
No more Barack Attacks. Or Barack-and-pinion steering jargon.

No more Palinizations. Palingering doubts. Palinguistics. Palinitudes.

No more VPILFs. Or MILTS (Moderators I'd like to strangle).

No more red and blue state squabbling. If this election has taught us anything, it's not to judge a state (or a candidate) by color.

Let's get back to the business of blaming each other based on our faults and inconsistencies, not based on our party affiliations or the sign that's been defaced and subsequently stolen out of our front yards. Let's identify each other by our humanity, not our "don't blame me" bumper stickers.
