Blicky Bipartisanship

Now I realize that many of you, gentle readers, don't love this man the way I do. So perhaps you're not sharing in my feelings of pride, jubilation and hope today. I decided to do a post in the spirit of bipartisanship because some of you need to be cheered up and frankly who isn't sick of divisive, vituperative attacks in our national conversation? Here's what each candidate has to teach us about bipartisanship:

Barack Obama:"As Lincoln said to a nation far more divided than ours, we are not enemies but friends. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection.

And to those Americans whose support I have yet to earn, I may not have won your vote tonight, but I hear your voices. I need your help. And I will be your president, too."

John McCain: "Senator Obama and I have had and argued our differences, and he has prevailed. No doubt many of those differences remain. These are difficult times for our country, and I pledge to him tonight to do all in my power to help him lead us through the many challenges we face. 
I urge all Americans who supported me to join me in not just congratulating him, but offering our next president our good will and earnest effort to find ways to come together, to find the necessary compromises, to bridge our differences, and help restore our prosperity, defend our security in a dangerous world, and leave our children and grandchildren a stronger, better country than we inherited."

Now as you know we here at Blicky Kitty live in a bipartisan household. The humans are all quite liberal and our cat is a neo-con. 

But we have come together in the true spirit of bipartisanship to create a list of basic truths that all Americans can agree on:

  • Angelina Jolie is hotter than I am.
  • Death is bad.
  • Cleaning the toilet is not a fun job.
  • Those rich wall street guys suck.
  • Hitler was a bad man.
  • Children are our future.
  • It would be funner to sleep with Brad Pitt than Ruth Buzzi.
  • Teasing French people is tres amusant, n'est pas?
  • Good stuff is usually better than bad stuff.
  • We should generally strive to avoid nuclear holocausts.
  • The macarena is no longer hip but still fun.
  • Madonna should maybe think about wearing more clothes even though her body is totally rocking.
  • Rupert Murdoch tortures small, furry animals.
  • Charo could still say "Cucchi Cucchi, but it wouldn't have the same effect on Captain Merryl.
  • Either candidate would have been better than the last guy.
  • Feel free to add you own...

    Some people are "cat" lovers and some people are "dog" lovers; Although we may not all be cool cats, we certainly are not dogs either!

    LOVE your BLOG!

    I'm mailing your FoY water prize after the sun comes up tomorrow. I've been too busy not doing squat to get myself over to the post office.

    How about these....

    Cheese It's are awesome.

    Strep throat stinks.

    People should not do or say anything behind the wheel of their car that they would not do or say if they were walking down the sidewalk.

    :)

    Great post - I am going to be thinking of these all day!

    Enjoyed your post and appreciated that you wanted to cheer up the other side. I didn't vote Obama, but I will support him as President. He'll have to earn my support for him and he has 4 years to do it. Best of luck to him, because we all need it.

    Hi Blicky. Love your post; the blend of the serious and the lighthearted. Pop over to the birdbath if you have a chance to see my own post on your new president-elect!

    We just experienced one of the most significant historical moments of this country! I hope everyone realizes that!

    Hey other Laurel - just had to come check Blicky Kitty out and you my dear are hilarious. Don't worry - Angelina Jolie is hotter than I am too:). So how many other Laurels did you know in school? Zippo, nada for me until college and then only once. I felt like a Susan for the first time in my life.

    Your list was funny :)

    In the spirit of my post today, how about:

    Wearing pajamas to WalMart is not attractive.

    I love your list. And I'm one of the giddy ones. I still get teary-eyed seeing replays of his speech the other night. I am SO proud to be an American right now.
