I love my President Elect. I’ve never said that before, because it’s never been true. One I sort of liked. A few I disliked intensely. Most I’ve tolerated. But, I’ve never loved one until now.
THIS LINK is one of the many reasons. You can’t click it, and not feel like this is your government, your country and your future.
I heard a rumor today that Robert F. Kennedy Jr. was being considered to head up the Environmental Protection Agency. I was literally speechless. It was perfect. He’s actually…..(wait for it)…..an environmentalist! I thought to myself, “This President may do something I would do!” That just hasn’t happened to me. Ever.
Just as I knew that whatever TV show would come out that I really liked would be the one that was cancelled immediately after the pilot, I’ve always known that if I would do it, there was no way it was going to happen in a presidential administration. Even if RFK Jr. doesn’t end up in the position, just the fact that he was being considered was enough to bring home to me what this administration may actually mean – what they may actually DO. No more Christie Todd Whitman in charge of the EPA, telling us that there was nothing toxic in the air after the attacks on 9/11. No more “Brownie” in charge of FEMA. No more Alberto Gonzales subverting the Constitution. No more Donald Rumsfeld. No more John Ashcroft. No more Condoleeza Rice. No more Dick Cheney.
I’d been so focused on the election, and the presidency, and keeping Sarah Palin far far away from that undisclosed location, that all these new and wonderful avenues to change didn’t hit my radar until today. The floodgates are open, and the possibilities are rushing through.
Sweet dreams, Mudflatters. Change is coming.
