A disappointing morning


Turned on the radio this morning just in time to hear them announce that Kerry conceded.

Dammit.

Some thoughts:

Kudos to him for not dragging us through a lengthy recount process.

I do not look forward to listening to anything other than Air America, and even that will be bittersweet.

Thanks to my conservative friends (the few I have) for not gloating.

Meanwhile, allow me to say goodbye to a few things:

- Civil liberties
- Civil rights
- Legalized abortions
- Separation of church and state
- Education
- The economy
- Our soldiers in Iraq
- Osama bin Laden
- Our international allies

I'm sure there are more.

Very depressed.

All hail the monkey king.

Edited to add: So much for my conservative friends not gloating.

I'm day dreaming of my own little island...I wanna live on Wonder Woman's island...where they'd tell old monkey king exactly where he could go...

If I get my own island...I'll send a boat to pick you up, k? :D

Not terribly conservative (more conservative than most of the SDMB, but that's not saying much! :)) -- and most definitely not gloating: more here.

I can't believe Kerry conceded. I took a nap and woke up to this? Wow. I am a Repub though.

In a lot of ways I'm glad he did. Mathematically there's really no way he can win at this point, but he IS still calling for ALL votes (provisional and otherwise) to be counted just the same; he just knows that even after that's done it won't change anything. The last thing this country needs is another Florida, and bully on him for accepting that (as frustrating and disappointing as it is). I really think he took the high road here, and I anticipate Bush will do the same.

Yeah... I think the Kerry camp did the right thing. There's nothing to be gained by looking like sore loosers - and this way America's elected officials can get back to running the country. Good on Kerry and Edwards for fighting a clean fight.

Actually, I'm kind of glad Bush won. In a really cynical and twisted way. It means that when his whole operation comes crashing down around his ears and flames and smoke jet skyward from the massive spontaneous combustion, it's going to be HIM in the driver's seat instead of Kerry.

It's going to be a completely Republican government (House, Senate, Executive, and most likely Supreme Court) that doesn't clean up the bureaucracy or reduce spending. It's going to be a completely Republican government in power when Iraq stops teetering and finally crashes to the ground. It's going to be a completely Republican government in power when corruption investigations, the Plame affair, and the truth about the intelligence agencies being picked over by the Administration come out in full.

The Republican party isn't going to survive intact. They've put a chimp in charge and it's going to come down around their ears.
