THE USA HAS REINSTATED ITSELF IN THE EYES OF THE WORLD

IN 2000 AMERICANS TORE OFF ALL OF THEIR MERIT BADGES AND ELECTED THE NEER-DO-WELL SON OF A FORMER PRESIDENT. THEN THEY CHEERED FOR A BLATANTLY IMPERIALISTIC INVASION OF AN OIL RICH ARAB COUNTRY THAT HAD NOT ATTACKED THEM AND WAS NO DANGER TO THEM . THEN THEY SCREWED UP THE WAR.

BUT THEN IN 2008,THEY GOT IT RIGHT.

Sitting on Top of the World
Garrison Keillor
November 12, 2008

Be happy, dear hearts, and allow yourselves a few more weeks of quiet exultation.
It isn’t gloating, it’s satisfaction at a job well done. He was a superb candidate, serious, professorial but with a flashing grin and a buoyancy that comes from working out in the gym every morning. He spoke
in a genuine voice, not senatorial at all. He relished campaigning. He accepted adulation gracefully. He brandished his sword against his opponents without mocking or belittling them. He was elegant, unaffected, utterly American, and now (Wow) suddenly America is cool. Chicago is cool. Chicago!!!
We threw the dice and we won the jackpot and elected a black guy with a Harvard degree, the middle name Hussein and a sense of humor-he said, “I’ve got relatives who look like Bernie Mac, and I’ve got relatives who look like Margaret Thatcher.” The French junior minister for human rights said, “On this morning, we all want to be American so we can take a bite of this dream unfolding before our eyes.” When was the last time you heard someone from France say they wanted to be American and take a bite of something of
ours? Ponder that for a moment.
The world expects us to elect pompous yahoos, and instead we have us a 47-year-old prince from the prairie who cheerfully ran the race, and when his opponents threw sand at him, he just smiled back.
He’ll be the first president in history to look really good making a jump shot. He loves his classy wife and
his sweet little daughters. At the same time, he knows pop music, American lit and constitutional law. I just can’t imagine anybody cooler.
It feels good to be cool, and all of us can share in that, even sour old right-wingers and embittered blottoheads. Next time you fly to Heathrow and hand your passport to the man with the badge, he’s going to see ” United States of America” and look up and grin. Even if you worship in the church of Fox,
everyone you meet overseas is going to ask you about Obama, and you may as well say you voted for him because, my friends, he is your line of credit over there. No need anymore to try to look Canadian.
