The Sky's Gone Out
When the official announcement of Bush's reelection comes, I plan to:
a.) Accept defeat graciously

b.) Rage against the machine
c.) Relocate to Cuba
d.) Spend the next 48 consecutive hours covering the walls and ceiling of my bedroom with a giant collage using images of Bush administration officials, war atrocities, industrial accidents and meat packing plants, then lay naked on the floor in the fetal position until an angel of the Lord comes to give me my mission.
I'm thinkin' a) Nordstrom sale (that was too good an idea to pass on, HWG); b) relocate to either Canada or Australia; c) cry like a baby and d) start making banners for Obama in 2008.
All my poor liberal friends... *hugs Heewig*
For you there is one bright side to this...
He can only do four more years.
Sounds like a plan. Do you mind if I do the same?
Let's just look towards 2008. The NBC pundits this morning seem to think that Hillary would run. Four years would be plenty of time to give Obama to gain some national experience. And we pretty much know Cheney isn't going to run, so the Republican nomination will be wide open. I wonder when the last time we didn't have either an incumbent president or vice president running? I think it was '68.
I'm just afraid that Bill "I fraudulently adopted cats from animal shelters while in medical school and then experimented on them before killing them" Frist - aka the Senate Majority Leader - will run, and win.
And then I really will leave the country.
I'll bet the Guiliani (sp?) takes a stab at either the presidency or VP. He was talking yesterday about how happy he is running his security firm, but that he would consider doing something on a national level if the president asked him to because he claims that he owes him personally and professionally.
The Democrats need to run someone who is a bit more of a moderate next time and to develop some balls. They need some pitbulls like the Republicans have and to start calling the Republican leadership out on more of their BS. I cannot tell you how many times I was yelling at the TV during this election season about why they weren't calling Bush and his cronies out on things that were obvious.
Despite the fact that I don't like it very much, I'm glad I'm living in Canada at the moment. I shudder to think of how things will develop in the next 4 years.
I just read a transcript with Tim Russert on NBC. He says to watch Hillary Clinton, John Edwards and Howard Dean for the Democrats and Rudy Guiliani, John McCain and Bill Frist for the Republicans in 2008.
Last night I was telling Mr. D_A that the Republicans would be really smart if they ran a ticket with McCain and Guiliani against whoever the Democrats trot out. They would probably get a heavy amount of Republican support and there are a lot of Democrats who would probably switch over if, for example, the Dems run Hilary, who is someone that many Dems cannot stand.
