As I sit here in my office, I can hear a few of my cowork­ers whin­ing and bemoan­ing the fact that Oba­ma won the elec­tion.  They are actu­al­ly stat­ing that the Unit­ed States is going to be destroyed now that we have a Demo­c­rat as pres­i­dent.  They seem to for­get that only one pres­i­dent ago, we had a Demo­c­rat in the White House.

And, of course, there are some who are ter­ri­fied of the fact that the new pres­i­dent-elect has more pig­ment in his skin than they do.
