Yawn....I started to read the letter Roberto Martinez felt compelled to share with Herald readers, but then I got a bit sleepy.....
Tuesday, democracy in America won. It is now time to come together and to give our full support to Barack Obama, a person of extraordinary qualities and skills. He earned and deserved his victory. He has the ability to lead our country effectively and be a successful president.
Oh yeah, I was reading Roberto's letter. Good points and all, a bit platitudinous but let see what else he has to say:
Regardless of how we voted, the differences in our political views are small. We share common principles and values, and with that common bond we stand together strong.
Ok. I mean, I agree with that, shouldn't everybody?
Boy my eyes are getting tired, let me try to get through this, what else:
It is time to celebrate and to get to work as a united country. I congratulate Obama for his historic victory and thank John McCain for his lifetime of service and sacrifice to our country. We were fortunate to have two exceptional people as presidential candidates. We now have one person who will be president -- for all of us. He deserves our full support.Oh man, Roberto. If you're going to write the Herald, you need to punch it up a little. You have to consider that your letter will appear right next to this sweet woman who thinks America has been cursed by God for electing Barack Obama.
See, now that's the sense of drama and blinding stupidity that Herald letter editors love.
