A long time ago, a wise man said "the time has come to set aside childish things."
Well actually, it wasn't all that long ago...it was January 20, 2009. And the man wasn't all that wise either, because these words were spoken by Barack Obama in his inaugural address.
At the time, he was referring to "childish things" like believing that the unborn have a right to life, or thinking that actual evidence was necessary to believe in global warming. And in the place of these "childish things", the new president promised unicorns and rainbows, world peace, full employment, free healthcare, free pie and, best of all, free Obama-money!
But none of it happened. And voters eventually realized that the genuinely "childish thing" had been electing a fast-talking Prince Charming who promised them a "happily ever after" when we live in a real world, with real problems, requiring real solutions.
Which is why on Election Day, 2010, Americans sent a resounding, historic, and unmistakable message to Barack Hussein Obama. And the unicorn he rode in on.
