Biden pulls upset

To the editor,

Ding Dong, the witch is dead!

Which old witch?

The Wicked Witch!

Ding Dong the Wicked Witch is dead!

Hey LaVon, We did it! If it wasn’t for our letters, who knows what might of happened!

Perhaps the conservatives should have read their bibles a little more closely. You know, that part about Moses’s followers worshiping the Golden Calf. Even God says that kind of thing never ends well. And then there’s always my favorite bible verse, Hosea 8:7.

I haven’t felt so much joy and relief since my doctor told me he got all the cancer. Because it’s pretty much the same thing.

Democracy has prevailed against the most anti-Democratic president in history. Turnout was through the roof and minorities, especially Black Americans, saved the election for all Americans. We owe them a great deal. That’s the way it’s supposed to work.

Today is a great day for America and the celebrations are certainly warranted. But we’ve got a long way to go. The vestiges of Trumpism will hang around our government like the odor of swamp gas. Georgia can go a long way inreducing that odor by electing the Democrats in January and ridding us of Moscow Mitch. The challenges are great, and evidently Biden and Harris are already working on a strategy for Covid and the economy.

But for the rest of us, it’s VJ Day. I half-expect to see that sailor kissing the nurse.
