Various links worth reading relating to the election:

  • George Wallace’s daughter ponders how he might have felt about the election of Barack Obama.
  • A blogger at ponders what this election might mean for the future of both the Republican and Democratic party. Particularly worth noting is the section on The Joshua Generation.
  • Obama’s speech about The Joshua Generation referenced above, delivered at the Selma Voting Rights March Commemoration in March, 2007.. I think it’s good enough to get it’s own citation here.
  • Wil Wheaton nails it. Right on the head. More or less what people like myself and kitanzi were trying to say in our posts on Wednesday, only better.
  • A lovely poem by Suzette Haden Elgin.
