The Parrot lost a night’s sleep; the night of November 4, 2008; the night when Barack created history. The loss doesn’t matter; will make it up sleeping during the day.
Oh, what a night it was; a defining moment in history. My loud neighbour screamed in jubilation; screams that made others believed that intruders were on the prowl.
Her screams topped those she made when “Buster” floored Tyson. The screams then were in disbelief. Of course that incident changed boxing; November 4, will change world politics.
On Election Day many had jitters; Barack’s supporters that is. They were led to believe that the margin of victory as predicted by the polls would be narrower than anticipated. This created the illusion that John could have sneaked a “come from behind victory”. It remained just that; an illusion. John ended up behind; way behind.
He was gracious though; very. His speech was that of a true patriot; a quality no one can contemplate doubting. His contributions will be prominently etched in the annals of U.S. history.
Sarah now seems like history. She was radiant standing next to John when he conceded. Like all the forty-three persons before him who had to deliver that most painful speech, the radiance was welcomed. She will be missed. Just ask Jay and David and Craig and the “Saturday Night Live” crew. Even the viewers will.
I cannot speak the same for the moose in Alaska. She is an ardent moose hunter. They breathed a thousand sighs of relief when she left the state to campaign. For their own wellbeing, the moose that is, they wished she would have become VP thereby staying in Washington DC and not being unable to make them her prey.
It wasn’t to be. She is heading back in their direction and they are scampering like other Republicans. Someone now hates Barack, the moose that is.
For the moose, Sarah was always a VP; a Veritable Predator. Now that she has lost, she has taken her VP’s position up a notch to a Violent Predator. Poor moose, they will probably feel safer in Alaska’s neighbour; Russia.
Their migration there will pose a monumental diplomatic challenge for Barack. Russia has not congratulated him, and with the strained relationship, courtesy of George, following the Georgia fiasco, any transgression into Alaska, even by moose, will be seen as a form of invasion. This can have consequences.
Bill will have to be summoned. He will present a case of the moose seeking political asylum. Putin will not be amused; he will not allow a single moose to back-track into Russian territory. He will see Sarah as George; being responsible for transgression.
The Republicans hate Sarah. The list is getting longer. The moose has been added and now Putin. If she is to be believed, then she’ll be back; like Arnold. She has indicated a willingness to run for President in 2012.
This was revealed during her campaign with John. Was it foresight? Did she see the “writing on the wall”? If it was, then it’s safe to conclude that we have a wrong perception of her academic acumen. In other words, she’s smart.
What? No offence George. By the way, after the announcement of Barack’s victory, many gravitated to George’s gate. They were vociferous. George screamed. He took umbrage on being rudely awakened.
He summoned Dick to investigate the reason for the protest. Dick wasn’t amused. He knew, like the moose, George will also be on the move soon. Squawk! Squawk!
