Hindsight and Contingency 

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...

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
