Color Me Happy

If you’re a liberal minded DC resident like I am (whatever that means), things can’t get much better than they are today. After billions of dollars were spent around the country to create annoying ad campaigns, our citizens have spoken, and voilĂ ! It’s out with the Republicans. Bush even threw his new enemies an olive branch by kicking Rumsfeld out. What’s next, DC statehood with representation for our taxation? The tide has changed my friends, and the outlook is good.

While I’m talking about reasons to be happy, let’s talk about how beautiful the Fall colors are right now. Summer has warm weather but I sure don’t miss those 95 degree, 100% humidity days. Spring brings the city back to life and gives the cherry blossoms a reason to pop (and gives us a reason to drink on a roof deck). Winter just plain sucks. But Fall gives us Halloween, reasons to wear our favorite sweaters, and as my friend says, Fall is “boot season”. But don’t forget about how amazing the landscape looks as Eye Captain shows us so well. Who would have guessed that Rock Creek could look so good? The colors are dripping in his photo and the water is as smooth as glass. It makes me want to take a deep breath and yell, “Only two more years of Bush!”

    Amen to your first paragraph. Now if we can just get that idiot Bush out of office and end the war.

    As far as the pic, wow! Fall is my favorite time of year, but winters don’t suck here nearly as bad as other parts of the country. We should have some nice weather the next couple of days, highs around 70 and partly to full sun.

    Not just a not-sad day for “liberal minded” friends. Conservatives, while not celebrating, are typically having a reasoned response. I think I am anyway – you mess up enough to get voted against, then you’re out. Period. Our system works, and that makes me celebrate, even though I dred the next two legislative years.

    I’m a principled and ideological libertarian-leaning conservative, but I believe in democracy way more than I believe in my ideology.

    Oh. FANTASTIC picture. Fall makes me not even have to sleep as much I’m so happy!

    I agree entirely. The city, nay the world, is stepping a little lighter today and breathing a little easier. But be careful: the last time I dared post an anti-administration pro-peace post, a fellow blogger nearly bit my head off and said it was too bad i was such a bitter person….
