Why America is Still Awesome

I love the fact that the son of South Asian immigrants is now governor of what many (myself included) perceive to be one of America’s most racist states.

What’s even greater about Bobby Jindal is that I’d probably detest the guy if I ever met him in person — he’s just the sort of hyper-motivated super achiever I moved out to Seattle to avoid.  Point is that I’d detest him for who he is, and not because of what he looks like.

Now if we could only get to the day when every American was truly judged “on the content of their character.”  I’m ecstatic to know that it’s at least still possible.
