We're fucked. Never thought I'd see a civil war in my lifetime.
While there is still a possibility of a Kerry win (many states are within the margin of error), it doesn't look good.
I can't bring myself to be angry or much of anything else. I'm just sad in a detatched sort of way. All of that effort and for what? I've started writing my next real post; but finishing it will likely require more anger than I can marshal right now.
I feel like all hope has been drained out of me. I look to the future and cannot see anything but a United States is worse condition in four years.
News reports are suggesting that Kerry has conceeded by phone call to Bush and will announce his concession publically this afternoon.
I continue to lack any hope for the country.
On the up side, the void left by the hope is being filled with deep, deep anger.
It is done.
The silver lining on the acid rain cloud:
Baldwin crushed Magnum 63% to 37%. My district continues to show the love for real liberal values.
Feingold comfortably beat Michaels 56% to 44%. My state continues to support real moderates capable of working across party lines to accomplish things.
