Enough weeping to go around

Oprah Winfrey is leaving Denver with the candidate she wanted, but reportedly without her eyelashes.

The talk-show host said she was moved to tears by Barack Obama's acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention. And those must've been some serious tears.

"I cried my eyelashes off," she said in the bowels of Invesco Field, moments after Obama accepted the nomination for president before an estimated 84,000 people.
If this guy gets elected there will be more than enough weeping to go around when people realize what's happened. This woman is sick, and another anecdote in a long line of what this season of politics means to women. A chance to hand over some personal liberties for the false security of putting someone else in control. It's the wrong reason to marry and the wrong reason to vote, but some just never learn.
