Election Night Audio

After president-elect Barack Obama gave his acceptance speech on election night, I headed over to Union Square to take part in the celebrations.  Here is some audio of the festivities.

The Presidential Debate: I HAVE A BRACELET so I should be president

I watched the Obama-McCain debate tonight, while chatting on AIM with my ITP classmates.  Rather amusing indeed, the best part was when both candidates compared their accessories collection.

“I HAVE A BRACELET TOO!”  Are bracelets from military families the new yellow ribbons or flag pins?

Show your patriotism with an “I HAVE A BRACELET” T-shirtBuying stuff is patriotic too.

More on the bracelet battle from Reuters.

And from Michelle Malkin of all people.
