Bush's America 2.0: Now With Even More Conservatism!
or "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb"

OK, the two much needed medicinal beers I had earlier this evening have worn off and now I'm just feeling cranky.

Four more years . . . of regression.

So, some random stuff for your consideration, since I'm not capable of coherant thought right now--due to the election results, not the two beers. What do you think I am, a lightweight?

That Bush won *more* of the popular vote than last time just boggles the mind. And the senate and house got redder. And we're pretty much guaranteed *at least* one more right-wing Supreme Court judge now.

I guess Karl Rove and Co did a great job of scaring the country into submission. That and Kerry was a Senator running against a former-Governor during a war. That and apparently the religous right thought we'd all wake up gay today if Kerry won.

Found on Wonkette: "Calling Karl Rove an architect of a campaign is kind of like calling Mengele a personal physician."

Heh-heh. OK, don't worry, I'm not spelling America with a "k." Yet.

Some generous Canadians suggest this:

It's not a bad idea, and we'd even get to keep the Cali beaches. You know what though? When you joke about going to Canada you just provoke radical folks like Michelle Malkin to say, "Don't let the door hit you on the way out." Well, you know what, Michelle, it ain't just your country. It's mine too now, dammit. So I think I'll stick to visiting Canada and stay here. Howzabout that? (Some of Malkin's posts venture into unwitting self-parody: "THE HATE CAMPAIGN AGAINST THE SWIFT BOAT VETS CONTINUES.")

Michael Bérubé, as usual, was able to elicit a laugh from me, even today, but this guy (Doghouse Riley) in Bérubé's comments really got me:
How about Do your best! STFU and start governing? You’ve had effective control of both Houses for almost twenty-five years now, and when you couldn’t swipe the presidential election from a Democrat you tied the country in knots over $40,000 land deals and blow jobs. I want pornography off my teevee tomorrow! I want Jesus back in the public schools, assuming we’re still gonna have any. Get the illegals out of my country. I want my Big Mac prepared by lovely white people. Who’s writing the Sodomy Amendment? Why isn’t Annie Jacobson head of the FAA? Why am I still paying taxes? State lotteries make Baby Jesus cry. Get US out of UN. How many caribou do we need to look at? Why is my water pressure so erratic? Kindly get busy.
Of course, this ceases to be funny, if it becomes true.

From tonight's post-election Daily Show:
Word of advice. If you want to have gay sex or visit a library, it's probably your last night to do those things. - Ed Helms.

On behalf of the blue states, I'd like to thanks the red states for saving us from ourselves. - Stephen Colbert.
The real message of the Bush victory? "How I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb."

OK, that's about all I can handle for now.
