He Gives a Damn Good Concession Speech

Holy crap!  That was the best speech McCain ever delivered.  It was heartfelt and powerful.  It was moving.  It was . . . remarkable.

And it reminded me of a great reason to celebrate.  Let me explain.

I was born in 1963 when there were still “Colored” and “White” drinking fountains.  Obama’s a few years older.

Tonight, despite my best efforts and many others, we have a black President.  That’s amazing in a very good way.

If there’s a silver lining in this election, it’s this:  America is now a color-blind society.  Martin Luther King must be smiling, not for Obama’s election, but for America’s maturity. 

God bless America.
