The five stages of grief. Let's get this over with quickly.

Denial: We've still got those provisional ballots in Ohio to count. Absentee ballots all over the place. The electors could decide not to give their votes to Bush. It's not over yet.

Anger: FUCK YOU, America. FUCK. YOU. You like 100,000 dead Iraqi civilians because of your false war? 8000 wounded American soldiers and 1100 dead in Iraq because of imperial hubris and incompetent post-war planning not enough to quench your desire for misguided vengeance? Great, well you're gonna have a lot more blood on your hands. Don't want gay marriage? Fanfuckintastic. You got your way. A lot of good it's gonna do when you can't afford your prescription drugs, your unemployment benefits have run out, and your kid's fucking school is overcrowded. And don't think for a fucking second that "tort reform" is going to make a difference, because it won't. Global warming is real, motherfuckers, and you just sealed the deal. Balanced budget? Ha. And when the Bush Supreme Court makes abortion illegal again, and thousands of women are dying from unsafe back-alley abortions, that's on you, America. Thought the world just hated our government? Fuck that. The world hates you the people now, America, you stupid, weak, arrogant, ignorant sons of bitches. In thirty years, when people look back at what happened on November 2nd, 2004, and ask what people were thinking, all I'll have to say is, "Fuck you."

Bargaining: Please, America, think about what you've just done. We'll give you your tort reform and your partially privatized social security. We'll quit bitching about how the 2000 election was stolen. Take some school vouchers, give it another try, maybe it'll actually work this time around. More handguns for everyone. We'll lock away Michael Moore. Just please, please, please don't let Bush back in office for four more years.

Depression: Fuck. I mean, just, fuck. I can't take another four years of this. This is horrible. Disgusting. I just want to curl up in the fetal position and lie in the dark until it's over. Where's my tub of cake icing?

Acceptance: Bring it on, motherfuckers! Republicans control the House, the Senate, the White House, and Bush is gonna have three or four Supreme Court justices to appoint. Bring on the radical rightwing conservative agenda. No more blaming Clinton or the Democrats. It's on the Republicans' heads now. And on the bright side...umm...I'll get back to you on that one.
wow that's me EXACTLY. to a T. precisely. dang.

I guess you have some special insights on how and when Armageddon will occur.

I live in Massachusetts, and I know a fair number of couples who for all intents and purposes would appear to be married, except for the fact that they don't have a piece of paper to prove it. I also know that some of these couples have "divorced".

I'm sure there are people in the South who also get married at a relatively late age.

they value marriage, and they likewise value gay relationships. the two are not mutually exclusive, as the Christian right would have us believe.

in fact, gays getting married is actually conservative. what could be more conservative than enabling people with the tools to live a life of monogamy and commitment?
How did gay marriage enter this argument?

LOL at A_Wanderer's pics... those were funny as hell, especially all of them taken together at once. LOL...

Terry McCauliffe should be removed from his postion as head of the DNC. IMO, I would think he was partially to blame for the downfall of the Democrats this election year. They techincally had a horrible election year losing seats in the Congress and Senate as well as losing a very winnable election.

Plus, he is annoying as hell.

Now back to business
