Aurora already has a great compilation of snippets and a historical perspective.
GM Roper (who, I trust, is celebrating three years free of cancer!) posted a video the day before Election Day that more people should have watched.
Phil, blogging over at Orion Hood, reminds us that the military serves the POTUS, regardless of that POTUS's identity.
My friend, P., wrote a note which I here quote in part:
“So this is how liberty dies... with thunderous applause!” This line from Star Wars echoed through my mind as I watched Obama’s acceptance speech. The people seemed in awe of this man who speaks of change but has proven nothing, done nothing except vote present. They praise him as the difference, the hope for the future. They say his charisma is overpowering and his speeches force people to stare in wonder. Sound familiar? This is also what was said about Adolf Hitler in Germany when he was elected chancellor. The Obama rally had a sea of red, white, and blue but all I could see was swastikas. Have we learned nothing from history? . . .
. . . Tonight was the first step; he was elected and hailed with praise. How long until he changes are democratic system? How about in the next four years. How could we let this happen? We sat back and allowed this “Change” and all of us should be ashamed. We allowed a man with such liberal views and agendas to become the next President of this great country and in the process have sealed our fate.
Thomas Frank tells us that conservatism isn't finished. Who knows? This upcoming administration may give the US a taste of liberalism at its worst - but, I hope, only a taste.
