16. February, 2009 - Not even a month

After the election last November, I wondered to myself how long the honeymoon with our new president would last. Turns out the answer is that it didn’t take a month for him to start disappointing people. Seems inevitable when you consider how high expectations were in some quarters, but that won’t stop me from feeling the odd bit of schadenfreude now and again over the next four years.

Does that feeling make me a lesser person? Well, it’s probably not an embiggening emotion, but I think as long as I try to minimize the neener-neeners, I’ll be okay. That said, well… neener-neener!
