How Long Will the Coronation Last?

I knew it was going to happen. Ben and I didn't even waste our time watching the election coverage last night. We really saw no point. And frankly, I'm over it. Let's face it, the Republicans have been in power for a long time and things are royally screwed up right now. Both parties are at fault, but at the end of the day the blame gets assigned to the Republican President. Sorry Dubya.

Anyway, I'll refrain from getting on my soapbox and from getting too political. Most of you probably won't read my rant anyway. All I want to know is how long this media hype will last? A few more days? Weeks? Months? Will his face be on every single newspaper and magazine next time i go into the grocery store? Will he force us all to tattoo an 'O' on our foreheads? Will he require every radio station to play excerpts from his acceptance speech? Will people at work quit giving me a blow by blow of the news coverage? Am I going to have to avoid TV, radio, print, and the Interwebs for the next 4 years? Or will this all be over in a week or so?

Best of luck, Obama. You've got a hell of a job ahead of you. Hope you're up to it!

Thats all.

Best post ever Mrs. Longmire

Makes me sick to see the media fawning over this whole deal.

I just hope they compare the Obamas to the Kennedy's again.
