Wrapping up loose ends

Working my way around the news of John Kerry's concession, I've ran into a lot of things that I'd like to direct your attention to.

Kerry Campaign Party Turns to Tears and Bitterness

Some Kerry supporters called Bush's platform "all lies"
...
A distraught woman confronted Democratic U.S. Rep. Harold Ford in the lobby of the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel and screamed, "Can you tell me why everybody made a mistake?"
...
"Bush has put forward a platform that people tend to believe even though it's all lies. Bush is dishonest; he is not being honest with the American people," Bryant said.

Another man shouted to the Republicans "This is why the rest of the world calls us ignorant Americans. You obviously don't read the newspapers or you would not believe as you do."

...
Kerry supporters from Ireland weighed in on why they believe Bush will likely be re-elected.

"It clarifies the fact that American people aren't so smart. If I could, I would have voted for Kerry," said the woman.

Where do you start with people like these--the True Believers? You can't convince them, and you ignore them at your peril. It seem obvious to me that they think those of us who support President Bush are just ignorant mouth-breathers that they're ashamed to share the planet with.






We have Tom Daschle losing his Senate seat. The GOP put a lot of effort into getting rid of Daschle and succeeded.

Stories of about various "voting irregularities" abound from both sides. Obviously, if it was there, it didn't make a difference. I'll take this as a good sign for the process.

Once again, the "youth vote" didn't live up to advance billing. Duh!--it never does.

The third party candidates didn't have much luck. Another Duh! But this one is tempered, since I wish we had a viable third party. I like the Constitution Party in particular.

Locally, we're sending the Senate a pretty good conservative in Richard Burr. He still likes Big Government more than I do, but he replaces John Edwards. Incremental improvement is better than none. His House seat will go to Virginia Foxx. She seems to have some good conservative credentials as well.

There is the usual crowd who will to leave the country if Bush wins. Uh, he won, rocket scientists. Need help packing? I've been saving boxes for ya! Jerks.

I'll probably run into more as time passes, but I may or may not blog them. I'm ready for the next phase to start. More on my thoughts there as events necessitate.
