After dealing with all of the bad news of the last few weeks (storms killing people in the south, the war in Iraq, economy spiraling into a recession, friends being laid off), we were all finally blessed with good news yesterday:
Mitt Romney is suspending his presidential campaign. It concerns me that it’s considered a suspension as opposed to a termination, but I’ll take what I can get. Upon hearing the news yesterday (less then 48 hours after a poor showing in the primary in which he claimed he’d continue to fight on*) I actually sighed audibly with relief. I smiled, and a sense of calm took over me.
To be honest, if I was a more motivated person I’d have emailed everybody I know locally (and asked them to email all of their local contacts, and so on and so on) for a celebration in front of the Romney for President headquarters in the North End. I had images of thousands of people cheering in the streets as Romney looked out the window.
Does that make me a bad person?
* flip-flop much, Mitt?
