Comments: Notes on the Election of 04

Most disappointing stat of the election: The youth vote. What the hell happened?

How many votes did it cost Kerry by:
- Outwardly rooting for the sox?
- Being married to the ketchup heiress?
- Having a big head?

My guess...
- 750,000 for the sox
- 1,000,000 for the condiment
- 100,000 for the melon

You gotta appreciate the use of Fanueil hall by the Kerry campaign.

And as far as "sore winers" go, Bush is a jackass for saying "I earned capital in the campaign, political capital, and now I intend to spend it," the day after he said he was going to try and reach across partisan lines. Way to reach out for the 50+ million people who didn't vote for you. Glad that lasted one whole fricking day, President Jackass.

The Jarvis pledge works when the GOP wins, but don't expect it the other way when the DEMs win. If Bush were to take the pledge, he would have his fingers crossed.

Oh, one more thing. Boston rocks!

I'm glad I've finally heard a Democrat echo my views about McAuliffe and Daschle. They have no idea how to be successful as a minority party. If you work against the other party and try to stall until you win, a funny thing will happen--you'll lose. I consider myself a moderate Republican and have voted for Democrats plenty of times in the past. Leiberman could have beaten Bush. I know, because I almost certainly would have voted for him. Leiberman was all but excommunicated for not hating every Republican plan ever presented. As soon as McAuliffe is out, the Democrats WILL rise again. They will regain favor in the South and start remembering why they were in power for so many years: because they fought for the middle and lower class. Not because their special interests were more special than the GOP special interests. I don't rue the day Democrats rise again, I anxiously await it. I didn't have a fair choice in this election and by-God I want one next time.

Why do 'moral values' translate to 'anti-gay'? Moral values are important to me but I think morality extends to doing what you say you'll do and not ditching Iraq. Gay rights is a regional issue. A Republican in NY will likely be more for gay marriage than a Democrat in Kansas or Georgia or Iowa.
