Gracious victor/loser pledge

Starting November 3 (or whenever it's clear who the winner is) there is going to be alot of animosity. I want to start this thread for people to "sign" that they will be gracious winners or losers. By "signing" this I pledge not to be rude to the victors/losers, nor will I rub it in. I will be kind to my fellow Interferencers, even if they may be unkind to me. etc. etc.

~U2Democrat~

Well, I'll be too drunk on champagne after Kerry's win so I should be ok to sign the pledge for a few days after the election.

I'll be glad to take the "gracious loser" pledge. This is a super idea, U2democrat. I've already made the statement that this is in no way personal, I have nothing personal against Bush. It's honest disagreement. I don't hate him or whatever. If he wins he is my President and I respect the office of the Presidency, no matter who fills it. Strangely, I wouldn't disagree with him as much if I thought he was a consistent compassionate conservative, like my own Republican congressman, Spencer Bachus. Bachus is a terrific compassionate conservative whom I like very much, even though I am always voting for his Democratic opponent on principle. He supports debt relief and has worked with Bono. So it's not like I can't respect compassionate conservatives, I really can. I'll be nice, I promise.

Damn, sharky, if Kerry wins I'll have to get drunk to think straight. It wasn't so long ago that I thought he was absolutely fd. and now the race is apparently competitive. What a shock that would be, a nice one, of course.

I won't say anything mean about Spot or Barney, how's that?

Just kidding--I think most people here know that I have no personal beef with Bush, even though I disagree with just about everything he says and does.

This pledge is going to be absolutely no fun whatsoever.

However, what a great idea. I hereby sign.
