Probably the biggest disappointment in American history.
Me in mid-to-late 2008: Oh boy, I hope Barack Obama wins the election! He's going to do so much in the way of gay rights and health care and inflation and abolish all of Bush's terrible policies and he'll be the first black president and oh, the U.S. is going to be a total utopia! I can hardly wait!
Me in 2009: ...well, we still have the PATRIOT Act, gay couples still can't marry in most states, the national debt is rapidly increasing, and he's distracting the nation from everything going wrong with news fluff pieces about his family's dog. Oops. Should have voted third party!
