Congratulations on your historical victory, Senator Obama. I am happy for this country.

However, I am sad for you and for your family. After all, you were chosen by the electorate to act as a janitor for George Bush, Dick Cheney and all their ultra-rich cronies as well as for all the selfish bankers, CEOs and Wall Street jackasses who have invested their lifetimes into destroying this country and others’ creations as well as stealing what little money that the average American has been able to save to support themselves.
Good Luck, because you’re going to need it.


About GrrlScientist

grrlscientist is the pseudonym of an evolutionary biologist and ornithologist who writes about evolution, ethology, and ecology, especially in birds. After earning a degree in microbiology (thesis focus: virology) and working at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, she earned her PhD in zoology from the University of Washington in Seattle, where she studied the molecular correlates of testosterone and behaviour in white-crowned sparrows. She then worked a Chapman Postdoctoral Fellow at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, where she studied the speciation and distribution of lories and other parrots throughout the South Pacific Islands. A discarded scientist, she returned to her roots: writing. Formerly hosted by The Guardian (UK), she now writes about science for Forbes and for the non-profit think tank, the Evolution Institute and she writes podcasts for BirdNote Radio. An avid lifelong birder and aviculturist, she lives with a flock of songbirds and parrots somewhere in Germany.

    Don’t you mean we are going to need it? I’m not done with this stuff, not by a long shot. He’s got a whole machine backing him up, of which I am a small part. We’re all going to take on his challenges.
    Are you with us?

    Like having a baby–The first nine months is just the begining. Now the real work begins. Let’s get to it. My whole adult life I’ve voted where guns and a twisted anti-women/anti-science view of god ruled. NOW my vote counted for something!
