I'm reading Bush v. Gore tonight for class, and I'm literally shaking with rage as I read what so many experts
believe to be total bullshit.
But thinking about the overvotes and spoiled ballots from Palm Beach County's infamous "butterfly ballot" reminds me that Gore won that election. And had it not been for Bush's illegitimate incumbancy and ill-advised imperial adventure in Iraq, the Democrats would have won in 2004 too. So while the time of witches is still upon us, it will not be forever. Democrats are not doomed losers, we've just been dealt some shitty hands (and played shitty ones too in 2002). Buck up, fair readers! Despite the headlines, all is not yet lost.
Now if we don't pick up a house of congress in the mid-terms...
