CNN.com is reporting that Kerry called Bush to concede - even though the provisional/absentee ballots in Ohio haven't been counted. Unless they've reached the point where it is statistically impossible for those ballots to help him, why would he concede? That's as bad as Gore giving in 4 years ago. He let the Republicans bully him and didn't insist on a statewide recount in FL. Who knows where we would be now if Gore had stood his ground - maybe not in Iraq. It's like if the Red Sox had decided before game 4 of the World Series, "Oh well, we're down 3 games and we probably won't win this thing, let's just forfeit."
Our president is a liar and a bully who gained his seat (def. once, possibly twice) thanks to intimidation & manipulation of the public opinion. I mean really, what's the big deal in waiting until all the votes are counted in states where the results are so close? Why do we have to know within a few hours - with 4% of precincts reporting? I don't understand why it's a big deal to wait a few days or even a week. We don't swear in the new president until January anyway. I spent more time waiting for my SAT results back in high school. And this is considerably more important.
And why are people in NoWhereville, KS citing terrorism as their main concern & reason for voting for Bush? I highly doubt the grain silo in the Smith farm is a target...

At this point, I think conceding is the right thing to do, rather than drag this country through another crazy legal battle.
Ohio and Florida are required to finish counting all of their ballots. If he manages to win? Well, then yay! If not? It still sucks, but at least it wasn't a month-long legal battle to get there.
However, it doesn't make it any better. Pass those donuts down here, please.

HERE, HERE ERIN!! HEre, here....he, aw screw it. I got nothin' left. I'm just too damn depressed. Not depressed really, more melancholy, yeah that's it. Bob Seger's Runnin' against the wind comes to mind. Four more years of Bush is gonna make me ill.

Wordy, McWord from up north.
I say we tar and feather Nader for not staying off the ballot in the swing states. He's as much a jackass as your president (Well "the" president, I'm sure you don't want him for your own).

Well, damn. I thought the 'Shit' title and depression was cause you dropped your doughnut.

Yup. I'm always hoping that the next one will fix the collosal train wreck that is our government. Doesn't seem to happen that way ever. Especially when the next guy is the same as the last guy. Keep doing what you've been doing, you'll keep getting what you've been getting. :(

Oh come on. We go thru this every four years. Half are happy. Half are depressed.
I want to know why you REALLY think having someone else 'in charge' is going to matter.
angela marie | November 3, 2004 2:22 PM
Yeah, hand me one too. Those old bitches didn't even give me a sticker !
Jenny | November 3, 2004 2:33 PM
what we really need is a jack and coke....I'll be right over
Casey | November 3, 2004 2:53 PM
OK Kerry conceeded and Bush one. It's not what many people wanted. I personally didn't want any of the choices we were given. BUT right now we need to do what Kerry mentioned in his concession speach and move on and move forward. If you don't like Bush then sitting there and whining about it will accomplish nothing. Get out there and be a little more actively involved in the government. If more people would do this instead of becoming pundits this country could and would be better than it has ever been.
There really is lot's that you can do, all it takes is a little effort and some determination!

Honestly, I think it's our own damn fault for putting up a guy who couldn't beat Dubya. I mean c'mon. It's DUBYA for Pete's sake!

Some words I found inspirational coming out of my I pod today when I was looking to escape all the pro Bush people puffing their chests out and congratulating each other...
Someday I'll wish upon a star
wake up where the clouds are far behind me...
where trouble melts like lemon drops
high above the chimney tops
that's where you'll find me...
Either there, or Paris. ;)
Hillary in 08?! Hmmm could be interesting, no?
