Blogwatch: Heartwarming Tales of Obama, Already

If Obama pulls it out tonight, progressive bloggers will get as shriek-y as teen girls at a Beatles concert. We predict posts that devolve into exhilarated, random hitting of keys: “He’s Black Reagan! Bi-Racial Roosevelt! SAHFGOhasjnaaw**%!!!!E#R$!”

But The Most Breathless Post In the History of the Liberal Blogosphere may already been written. That would be Boyd Reed’s “I Didn’t Vote for Obama Today” on TPM Café. We’ll spoil the twist ending for you:

When my ballot was complete, except for the top line, I finally decided who I was going to vote for – and then decided to let him vote for me. I reached down, picked him up, and told him to find Obama’s name on the screen and touch it.

And so it came to pass that Alexander Reed, age 5, read the voting screen, found the right candidate, touched his name, and actually cast a vote for Barack Obama and Joe Biden.
