At long last, we enter the 21st century. The forces of darkness have been defeated at last in battle, though we must remember they are still out there in the dark lonely places of the world, festering, awaiting their chance to rebuild and assail us again. We must be ever vigilant to guard the bastions of decency and hope against their inevitable onslaught. But for now, we have a leader worth following.

Of course, there's another take, rather tongue in cheek, from the Onion:

Black Man Given Nation's Worst Job

November 5, 2008 | Issue 44•45

WASHINGTON—African-American man Barack Obama, 47, was given the least-desirable job in the entire country Tuesday when he was elected president of the United States of America. In his new high-stress, low-reward position, Obama will be charged with such tasks as completely overhauling the nation's broken-down economy, repairing the crumbling infrastructure, and generally having to please more than 300 million Americans and cater to their every whim on a daily basis. As part of his duties, the black man will have to spend four to eight years cleaning up the messes other people left behind. The job comes with such intense scrutiny and so certain a guarantee of failure that only one other person even bothered applying for it. Said scholar and activist Mark L. Denton, "It just goes to show you that, in this country, a black man still can't catch a break."
