So Bush wins, Kerry looses, and I should just be absolutely devastated, right?
But I'm not. Disappointed, yes, aggravated definitely, but not devastated. Mainly because I'm watching this whole thing unfold with a sort of detached amusement.
I'm not going to put on a tin foil hat, but I will say something is awfully fishy about how quickly the channels wanted to call Ohio and Florida for Bush. Florida especially, with only a tiny percentage of the votes counted. And what was more disgusting is how no one stood up to the media to tell them to put a lid on it.
But what's really going on is what Eric Alterman talks about here: http://msnbc.msn.com/id/3449870/
There ARE two Americas, and pretty soon we're gonna start kicking each others asses. They kicked ours last night... now it's time we started kicking theirs for real.
