Obama Wins 2008 Election

In an attempted to outwit the media, we at College Being are announcing at 12:34am on November 4, 2008, that Barack Obama has won the 2008 U.S. presidential elections. The pundits thought it would come out a closer match between Obama and McCain, but they were wrong. In the end Obama won the popular vote and beat McCain’s electoral college vote by more than double. Congratulations to the new president of the United States. Let’s HOPE he lives up to his promises.

Edit: It seems our prediction was ahead of CNN by over 22 hours.

We Endorse Barack Obama

Like every other popular news source, the editors of College Being endorse Barack Obama. We are doing it just because everybody else is doing it, but if you are more concerned with the issues, here you go:

He’s Black

Well if you aren’t a racist this is a good thing (if you are racist, you are probably a Republican anyway). Why? Black people are cool dude. (Yeah we are totally white here… dog…) Well it is either a cool Black guy or some grumpy old man. Plus, who cares about the decisions they make when they are president? In reality we should be voting for who we can stand to watch and listen to for at least four years.

5 New Authors and More

The next part of our user-requested renovation project here at College Being is a big restructuring. Ace Anderson has done quite a lot of work here in the last months, but now we are moving in a new direction.

Today, we will start five new authors on the site: The Hippie, The Sorority Girl, The Football Player, The Computer Nerd, and The Professor. Each will add his or her own unique style of writing and view of the world. Also, with new authors, the number of stories posted per day will increase slightly. All are great writers and I am sure you guys will enjoy them.

Ace will continue to assist me in editing the site content and finding great stories to write.

Additionally, starting next week, we will introduce new site topics: The Weekly Deal, For Men, For Women, On a Budget, Universities, and the CB of the Month that has been in works will finally be published.

We hope you guys enjoy! And continue to let us know what you think.
