The great moment has come.
Today is Election Day.
For months, we have been waiting for this day, here on this blog.
Tonight will be the night.
The night when the man who has stolen the election from Hillary will know what defeat means. And we will see on his face an expression we have been expecting to see for months : he will be the LOSER !
This morning, when I woke up, I turned on the radio, just to see how they were presenting the whole thing.
And what I heard was even worse than everything I had imagined.
Have they gone crazy ?
France Inter was already celebrating and was debating what would change in America with Barack after (I quote) "a nightmare which had lasted 8 years" !
Europe 1 was trying to describe early voting trends by giving the results of the votes in an obscure village of only 21 inhabitants who had voted for Obama by more than 90 % whereas they had always voted for Republicans. So this village is supposed to reflect what will happen throughout the country, I suppose ?
Finally, I managed to hear an interesting piece of news : I learnt that John McCain was still holding a rally : it was more than midnight, and he was still campaigning. And so was Sarah Palin.
At least, the two Republican candidates do not listen to what the media says, and they are right. They continue to believe in their chances of winning tonight.

Gattis and Reyes were staffing the location the day before the election. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren)

Incredible : Obama crying !

But I have kept the big piece of news for the end of my article :
Do you know what happened yesterday ?
Barack Obama cried !
Yes, he did !
He cried when he announced the death of his grandmother.
So please ladies and gentlemen in the media, be sure to put this photo in your front pages tomorrow...
And don't forget that ...
... tomorrow morning, Obama will surely have another good reason to cry...
