They Represent the Lollipop Guild
For more on the reaction by the press to the Bush mandate, reader Gary Larson directs us to this essay, Hysteria in Oz. Excerpts:
Look, I am all for giving the Munchkins a week of mourning. They lost another reasonably close election and their love of power is intense. It is tough on them. But I am not prepared to let them rewrite history or distort reality.
Count me among the red state Bush supporters who are pretty tired of all the whining and complaining by Democrats about the Republican attack machine. The simple truth of the matter is that the Democrats have aligned themselves with the idiot left and that is why they are losing elections. Had Kerry denounced Michael Moore and Gore Vidal, and like-minded conspiracy nuts, he might well have shown the nation he was ready to lead. But a presidential nominee who cannot make up his mind on even obvious issues has not earned the right to lead the nation in a time of war.
