As the Cardinals Celebrated

I'll never know if she saw me. Probably not. But in that moment, all the bad memories, all the things I'd ever wanted to say to her, it all came flooding back.
My first impulse was to run over there, pound on her window and demand that she admit she tore down those posters and lied and cheated her way into winning that election. Instead I just stood there. And I suddenly realized I wasn't angry at her anymore. I just felt sorry for her.
I mean when I think about my new life and all the exciting things I'm doing. And then I think about what her life must be like, probably still getting up at 5 in the morning to pursue her pathetic little dreams. It just makes me sad.
I mean where is really trying to get to anyway? What is she doing in that limo? Who the FUCK does she think she is?
[Throws large Pepsi at limo.]
But that's all ancient history now. I've got a whole new life.
