Riding the short bus

Regardless of the outcome, there's no rational reason this election should've been so close, nor any rational reason this president wasn't frogmarched to a jail cell. Except, of course, that a frightening percentage of my fellow Americans have the intellectual capacity of Ralph Wiggum>:

"I look at the big map and all of the red in flyover country and I feel like I've been locked in a room with the slow learners. We have become the country that pulls a dry cleaning bag over its head to play astronaut."

The first words I said on September 12th were, "Please tell me I just had a really horrible dream." I feel much the same this morning. I'm not sure I will live long enough to understand why people would vote for Bush. We heard on the news this morning that he has already scheduled a cabinet meeting to get started on his second term agenda. God help us all.

Ditto. This is unreal. I know its not over yet but I can't believe its coming down to just one state again. How could it be so close??? Am I the only one who thinks that Bush is the devil???

Anon: No, you're not the only one. The mind scarcely has the courage to boggle at the idea that we're facing another 4 years of this shit.

Malinda: Agreed. It's the same sick feeling and the helpless outrage that makes you want to just scream at the world. If he wins, this will not end well.
