Acceptance of Defeat, and research paper

Well, McCain lost. Obama won. I guess the best thing for a conservative blogger to do right now would be to accept defeat, and wish God's guidance for the new president-elect. Because, I've learned, political anger is unhealthy and godless. If I really want to reach people, in any way, I must back my argument up with facts. This is true both in political and spiritual issues.
And yet, my home city of Livonia remains Republican. Both our state house representative and our US house representative are conservatively minded. Another fortune for the nearby city of Detroit: the removal of Kwame Kilpatrick. Hopefully, Mayor Cockerel will take the city out of its parabolic descent, and at least reach a vertex.
In my own life... I have to write a persuasive research paper for English. My subject is the Globalization of English. The hardest part of the paper? Definitely, MLA citations. Next to impossible to do perfectly. Plus, I can't find all the information I need for each citation. So, that's a drag. Also, in Spanish, we have to sing this really dumb song. If a Spanish speaker saw it, it would be labeled as dry and meaningless. The tune isn't terrible, just the lyrics.
Anyway, thank you all for checking out my blog. I've removed the presidential and vice presidential polls, just as the tv stations have removed all traces of political ads (finally!) Have a great weekend, everyone out there.

Hi Ben,

I think it's great that you followed the election and that you and your friend Isaac have hearty debates about your political differences. There's a maturity in being able to listen to others, even if you don't agree with them. Here's to you rocking the vote in 2012! -- Bonnie
