A golden glove, and a golden ticket! And, a really cool fact!

First off, Barack Obama has been elected president! I am truly happy for him, I think he is a really great guy, and I think his vice president, Joe Biden, was a great choice since he is an expert on foreign policy. To all you republicans out there, I really respected John McCain, but Sarah Palin? Even you know in the bottom of your conservative heart that being a soccer mom who can see Russia from her house is not qualified. The electoral college map was interesting. I predicted 48/50 states correctly. I only missed Missouri and North Carolina. Virginia was a close race, it was 50-50 for a little while, and Indiana was close too. Barack Obama is like the Jackie Robinson of politics. Jackie Robinson broke the racial barrier in baseball, and now, Obama has broke the racial barrier in politics. It was inspiring to watch some interviews with people who had marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, and how happy they were. 

Now, dear republicans, if you think that Barack’s policies are socialism, I have a response for that too. On the political spectrum, being a democrat verges towards socialism, but it isn’t socialism at all. Spreading the wealth has always been a democratic idea. Obama just wants to help Joe the plumber become successful. Besides, most of you probably will benefit from his tax plan. Plus, we’ve given your republican policies 8 years to work, and they haven’t. It’s time for Change, and Barack is our golden ticket to that.
Now, another notable accomplishment is that Dustin Pedroia won a gold glove! If you think about it, it’s really quite remarkable. The kid is in his second year of baseball, and in his first he won AL Rookie of the Year, and in the second he won a gold glove, and he is a very strong candidate for the MVP award. I’m so proud of him. 
Fenway Park is now in it’s “8th inning” of renovations, we’re getting better seats apparently and water proofing the lower bowl. Some of the Sox correspondents have requested that Fenway holds the 2012 All-Star game. Why? Well, it’s sentimental. 100 glorious years at the beautiful Fenway Park. I hope they’re allowed! 

What Does Joe Biden put on his pasta?

It’s finally here, it’s what we’ve all been waiting for (for the past four years)! Ever since the primaries started, I’ve been excited. I myself am a moderate-liberal, but I do like Barack Obama, and Joe Biden. John McCain is a great guy though, I just don’t like Sarah Palin very much. If McCain-Palin ends up getting elected, we’ll have some great SNL skits to come in the next four years; plus, perhaps some more prank calls from French-Canadian radio stations! 

So I got home from school today, and I was really excited to turn on the news to see how the election was going. I turn on Fox News at 4 (channel 7 or whatever) and some guy is talking about the weather, so I look for CNBC or MSNBC but I can’t find it, I think it just disappeared. But, I did find the Colbert Report, which is much more reliable than any of the other stations, in my opinion at least. Mr. Colbert and Mr. Stewart are probably the smartest guys on television. Political satire shows are my favorite.
So, the only big baseball news of the day that I have acquired is that Theo Epstein’s contract has been extended. I trust Theo with everything he does, I’d put my life in his hands. I just really hopes that he decided to keep Jason Varitek, and Jacoby Ellsbury. One more thing, I want Pedroia to be MVP, I think that he really deserves it. How cool would it be if he got rookie of the year and then the MVP in back to back seasons. He’s insane. I think the top 3 cadidates are Pedroia, Mauer (or maybe it’s Hamilton? I’m not sure) and Youkilis. If one of them wins, then they definitely deserve it. 
So, the answer to the question (or joke rather)… What does Joe Biden put on his pasta? COMMUNIST MANIPESTO! See? Not only is Steven Colbert smart, he’s clever too!
