Barack Obama, America’s 44th president

I had to pinch myself and go out on the terrace for some bracing cold air, I couldn’t believe it. My mom called me at 5:25 in the morning with the news, the very moment McCain was giving his concession speech. Right now I’m watching President-elect Obama give his victory speech in Chicago. After eight years, the Iraq invasion, a destroyed economy, Guantanamo, Abu Graieb, the Patriot Act, the neocons, Rove, Cheney and BUSH, my kneejerk reaction is to write something cynical or ironic, but no, this is just a great thing. Finally, we’re back!

    Congratulations, Americans. I’m glad you followed my lead by endorsing Mr. Obama. Let me know when it’s time to start criticising him. About January 21st, no?

    You can start criticizing him now, for all I care. For once though Europeans won’t be able to say all Americans are imbeciles.

    Oh my God! What will become of all that anti-Americanism now?!? What if it really does turn out that Europeans were simply anti-Bush? No wonder the right-wing hate blogs are running out of steam…

    And all this, thanks to the massive influx of Catalan immigrants, me and my 9 year old daughter.

    Nah, it’s me who won it with my endorsement in February 2007. I’m getting slightly worried that the glory might fade away before I get any real recognition!

    Ian: You Catalans take credit for everything! From discovering America to inventing paellas, and now getting Obama elected president! Quina vergonya!

    Tom: You goddamn limies too!
