Real America In the Tank For Obama

Posted in 2008 election, political by indiegoddess on November 7, 2008

North Carolina has been all but officially called for Barack Obama. CNN, last I checked, still had us uncalled; but AP did the math, finally. There are fewer provisional ballots outstanding than there is a difference in votes between McCain and Obama. I can’t tell you all how thrilled I am to be living in a blue state. And in the bluest blue heart of that blue state, as well.

One thing I found amazingly hilarious, though not entirely surprising if you know the area, is Guilford County. Greensboro is in Guilford County, for those of you who know cities better than counties. Guilford County is also the place where Sarah Palin made her famous [and not at all facist] comment about being so happy to be in “Real America.”

Guilford County went to Obama 59% to 41%. That’s an 18 point margin. How do you like your “Real America” now, Governor Palin?

So, from those of us in Orange County, we’d like to send a wave all the way over the red Alamance County that separates us to beautiful blue Guilford County, and say to you all “Well done. Well done, indeed.”
