Obama 2012: The Dark Knight Returns
Election Night happened during my DJ gig at Little Fish – Huge Pond, located in Sanford, Florida.
My first time playing vinyl on Tuesday nights, I turned on the stereo system I received as a Christmas present back in 1991. Check out the dust.
First, I played classical music, sounds that played surprisingly well with the election action on the bar’s television.
After playing three records, I played these albums: Chuck Mangione’s Love Notes, Madhouse’s 16 (an 80s jazz project by Prince) and George Benson’s In Your Eyes. No one complained about the music, either.
Because everyone were Obama supporters, people cheered when he won.
As most Downtown Sanford bars were nearly empty, Little Fish still attracted people.
During his campaign, Mitt Romney possessed the audacity to appear in Sanford.
Knowing the racial climate over the Trayvon Martin incident, he chose to show his mug in the city.
I’m damned glad Obama won. All the GOP knows how to do is stir up bigoted white people and make the rich wealthier.
That talk of “Taking Our Country Back” annoyed me too. Take it back from who? Also, why is it just their country and not everyone else’s? I am so sick of certain Americans behaving as if they’re entitled to everything.
Not only did Obama win the electoral vote, he won the popular vote too.
The Dark Knight has returned.
