The Re-election Of An Idoit

Recommended Posts

I knew that bush was going to get back into office. I knew he'd win outright (like he did), or it would be so close that he could rig it again. It still pisses me off, so please everyone excuse my language.





WTF is wrong with the Americans, holy fuck. Bush is screwing the world up the ass while I have to sit back and watch bush beat the unworthy (with us or againts us mentality) into submission. Fuckin' pisses me off. There's not much I can do, there's not much any of us can do. I CAN TELL YOU OUTRIGHT, 'I WOULD BE ASHAMED TO CALL MYSELF AN AMERICAN'. I'm so proud to be from Canada. I'm so lucky that I'm not in that idoits path of death and destruction. WTF is happening south of the border? FUCK! Fuckin hell!!




I'm very sorry. I don't care if i get suspended from the site or anything. I had to get that off my chest.

Dear Friends,


Ok, it sucks. Really sucks. But before you go and cash it all in, let's, in

the words of Monty Python, 'always look on the bright side of life!' There

IS some good news from Tuesday's election.


Here are 17 reasons not to slit your wrists:


1. It is against the law for George W. Bush to run for president again.


2. Bush's victory was the NARROWEST win for a sitting president since

Woodrow Wilson in 1916.


3. The only age group in which the majority voted for Kerry was young adults

(Kerry: 54%, Bush: 44%), proving once again that your parents are always

wrong and you should never listen to them.


4. In spite of Bush's win, the majority of Americans still think the

country is headed in the wrong direction (56%), think the war wasn't worth fighting (51%), and don't approve of the job George W. Bush is doing (52%). (Note to foreigners: Don't try to figure this one out. It's an American thing, like Pop Tarts.)


5. The Republicans will not have a filibuster-proof 60-seat majority in the

Senate. If the Democrats do their job, Bush won't be able to pack the

Supreme Court with right-wing ideologues. Did I say "if the Democrats do

their job?" Um, maybe better to scratch this one.


6. Michigan voted for Kerry! So did the entire Northeast, the birthplace of

our democracy. So did 6 of the 8 Great Lakes States. And the whole West

Coast! Plus Hawaii. Ok, that's a start. We've got most of the fresh water,

all of Broadway, and Mt. St. Helens. We can dehydrate them or bury them in

lava. And no more show tunes!


7. Once again we are reminded that the buckeye is a nut, and not just any

old nut -- a poisonous nut. A great nation was felled by a poisonous nut.

May Ohio State pay dearly this Saturday when it faces Michigan.


8. 88% of Bush's support came from white voters. In 50 years, America will

no longer have a white majority. Hey, 50 years isn't such a long time! If

you're ten years old and reading this, your golden years will be truly

golden and you will be well cared for in your old age.


9. Gays, thanks to the ballot measures passed on Tuesday, cannot get married

in 11 new states. Thank God. Just think of all those wedding gifts we won't

have to buy now.


10. Five more African Americans were elected as members of Congress,

including the return of Cynthia McKinney of Georgia. It's always good to

have more blacks in there fighting for us and doing the job our candidates



11. The CEO of Coors was defeated for Senate in Colorado. Drink up!


12. Admit it: We like the Bush twins and we don't want them to go away.


13. At the state legislative level, Democrats picked up a net of at least 3

chambers in Tuesday's elections. Of the 98 partisan-controlled state

legislative chambers (house/assembly and senate), Democrats went into the

2004 elections in control of 44 chambers, Republicans controlled 53

chambers, and 1 chamber was tied. After Tuesday, Democrats now control 47

chambers, Republicans control 49 chambers, 1 chamber is tied and 1 chamber

(Montana House) is still undecided.


14. Bush is now a lame duck president. He will have no greater moment than

the one he's having this week. It's all downhill for him from here on out --

and, more significantly, he's just not going to want to do all the hard work

that will be expected of him. It'll be like everyone's last month in 12th

grade -- you've already made it, so it's party time! Perhaps he'll treat the

next four years like a permanent Friday, spending even more time at the

ranch or in Kennebunkport. And why shouldn't he? He's already proved his

point, avenged his father and kicked our ass.


15. Should Bush decide to show up to work and take this country down a very

dark road, it is also just as likely that either of the following two

scenarios will happen: a) Now that he doesn't ever need to pander to the

Christian conservatives again to get elected, someone may whisper in his ear

that he should spend these last four years building "a legacy" so that

history will render a kinder verdict on him and thus he will not push for

too aggressive a right-wing agenda; or B) He will become so cocky and

arrogant -- and thus, reckless -- that he will commit a blunder of such

major proportions that even his own party will have to remove him from



16. There are nearly 300 million Americans -- 200 million of them of voting

age. We only lost by three and a half million! That's not a landslide -- it

means we're almost there. Imagine losing by 20 million. If you had 58 yards

to go before you reached the goal line and then you barreled down 55 of

those yards, would you stop on the three yard line, pick up the ball and go

home crying -- especially when you get to start the next down on the three

yard line? Of course not! Buck up! Have hope! More sports analogies are



17. Finally and most importantly, over 55 million Americans voted for the

candidate dubbed "The #1 Liberal in the Senate." That's more than the total

number of voters who voted for either Reagan, Bush I, Clinton or Gore.

Again, more people voted for Kerry than Reagan. If the media are looking for

a trend it should be this -- that so many Americans were, for the first time

since Kennedy, willing to vote for an out-and-out liberal. The country has

always been filled with evangelicals -- that is not news. What IS news is

that so many people have shifted toward a Massachusetts liberal. In fact,

that's BIG news. Which means, don't expect the mainstream media, the ones

who brought you the Iraq War, to ever report the real truth about November

2, 2004. In fact, it's better that they don't. We'll need the element of

surprise in 2008.


Feeling better? I hope so. As my friend Mort wrote me yesterday, "My

Romanian grandfather used to say to me, 'Remember, Morton, this is such a

wonderful country -- it doesn't even need a president!'"


But it needs us. Rest up, I'll write you again tomorrow.

Sure Bush won't be in again but that means that he doesn't have to please anyone now. He can go psycho.

Right now 10,000 US soldiers are bearing down on Fallujah. They're going to flatten it. I was at Matthew Good's blog, there's some tasty treats of what Bush might do now. Flattening Fallujah is just one. Fuck.
