Before the New Era of Bipartisanship Starts...

I am walking to my car in a typical parking lot. A man spots my Obama pin. He locks eyes on it, squints and makes a face I have come to realize is the face of a Jackass about to say something stupid.
"You should of voted for your own kind." He said.
My reply?
"I did. An American."
There were a few other words after that but the point was made. As I pulled out I couldn't help but yell, "You lost, Bitch!"
This happened today. Obama's Inauguration.
47 Million people voted for John McCain.
12% of Americans believe Obama is a Muslim.
20% still think Iraq had something to do with 9/11.
This guy was one of those people.
It doesn't matter that the 44th President of the United States of America is the first African-American to hold this office. Its not his people. Its not historic for him in the same way it is historic for the rest of us. This guy is your neighbor or boss, the friend of the friend who says inappropriate things at backyard bar-b-cues.
Two minuets after Obama took office I switched over to Fox news out of curiosity. It had already begun. The guy had the job for two minuets and they were already criticizing him.
To this I say- How dare you! In the middle of two wars, how dare you criticize the commander and chief who is busy protecting the troops!
OK. Now the new era of Bipartisanship can begin.
