Change!


Last night was amazing. Mr. Obama's speech to the quarter million!! people at Grant Park was truly an inspiring moment for me. I am at a loss for words...so let's have some music do the talking! 
And what's more appropriate than a track with Jesse Jackson's famous I - Am Somebody poem recited live at the Wattstax Concert in '72 over some Sister Sledge's Lost In Music?
I'll tell you what's more appropriate. Nothing.

"If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive  in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer" – Barack Obama

From Betty Botox's 2006 release G4 Faggot.

as I stood there In Grant Park, flanked by a glowing Chicago skyline, and electric feeling in the air...it occured to me:

40 years ago, police were brutalizing both whites and blacks alike outside the DNC probably not too far from where I was standing.

Now, from where I'm standing I see both whites and blacks watching an African-American accept the nomination in front of 250,000 strong for PRESIDENT of the FUCKING UNITED STATES!!!!

This happened in my lifetime.

Yes We Can.
Yes We Did.

At that moment: I took a massive dump. I couldn't help it, I'd been 'turtle heading' for about 60 minutes. But I caught it on the YouTues World Wild Webs.

Betty Botox's newest release is pretty tight jeans, too.
