Waking up the day after the election when your guy loses is like waking up with a hangover. Oh wait, I do have a hangover. My fellow progressive friends are bemoaning the Cheney/Karl Rove mouth piece (c/krmp) victory, but really, who didn't see that coming? Here's what I think--yes, their policies are appalling. Yes, the Supreme Court thing is scary. Yes, the rich will just get richer (interestingly--c/krmp did a terribly job getting votes from working class and poor voters, yet they branded Kerry as a candidate for "rich liberals"). However, I don't think it can get that bad. When afterall, was the last time we elected a fascist into office (your criticisms of Regan not withstanding)? There's a push pull dynamic at work here and it shapes our country's political process. Elected leaders can't go too far. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.

Me? I'm already stoked for '08.
