HISTORY! HISTORY! (MORE LIKE HERSTORY BECAUSE I, LESLIE KNOPE, AM CURRENTLY WRITING ABOUT IT BECAUSE I’M SO EXCITED!!!) AAAH!!!!
Okay, about 3 hours have passed since I started this newsletter entry. I needed to calm down. We all know it, but I’m here to say it: Barack Obama has been elected President. Of The United States. Of America. Which is where I live!! This historical moment is so so so wonderful for two equally important reasons:
#1 – He is America’s first African American president!
#2 – Joe Biden, that oh so dreamy legislator, is Vice President! I mean, sometimes you have to pinch a girl to tell her she’s not dreaming. So Leslie, you can stop pinching yourself – you’re not dreaming and you’re gonna give yourself a bruise. AAAH!!!!
Okay, about 2 hours have passed since I wrote about Joe Biden. I needed some more calm down time. It’s now like 6 in the morning and I haven’t gone to bed yet. But who can sleep at a time like this? Obama. Biden. Dreams. Coming. True. Boy, do I need some waffles. Here I come, JJ!
Look out, Pawnee…it’s a new world, and it’s spelled J-O-E!!
