YES, We Did!!

"The election of our first African-American president truly shows how far we've come as a nation," said NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams. "Just eight years ago, this moment would have been unthinkable. But finally we, as a country, have joined together, realized we've reached rock bottom, and for the first time voted for a candidate based on his policies rather than the color of his skin."

from "Nation Finally Shitty Enough To Make Social Progress," The Onion
(5 November 2008). (yes, it is satire, but it's kinda true).
