It’s over, people. America has spoken, and they have overwhelmingly chosen Barack Obama as the next President of the United States.
You may think I’m crazy for calling the election this early. Most of the major media outlets have said they won’t call it until 8:00 pm this evening at the earliest, and many said they will wait for the results from some of the tight races in Arizona and Nevada before making it official.
I think it’s pretty clear how this is going to turn out, though, especially given the landslide victory Mr. Obama enjoyed in Dixville Notch, New Hampshire. In results announced early this morning, he defeated Mr. McCain by a staggering count of 15 votes to 6, winning 71.4% of the popular vote.
Now, some may argue that it’s irresponsible to call an election based on results from .0000104% of eligible voters. That’s just the way I roll. I’m one of those unpredictable, mavericky blogger types who is way in front of the tired old mainstream media.
I offer congratulations to President Obama, and I look forward to watching him transform the U.S. into a utopia, where unicorns and people of all races and economic backgrounds will join hands and sing together in the spirit of harmony and peace.
