Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash: Pick Two

Dark Day

Even if, by some miracle, Ohio comes in for Kerry, and Kerry wins the Presidency, Republicans have expanded their control of the Senate and gotten read of Tom Daschle in the process. They've won more seats in the House, and taken more state governorships. And no matter how you slice the electoral votes, Bush has the popular vote.

I can't quite put to words the bitter taste in my mouth, and the reeling disappointment I feel. America is marching steadily rightward. Even if the march were rightward under a competent, honest, and responsible administration - I would be bitterly disappointed by that trend.

I hope Democrats take the campaign in Pennsylvania to heart as a way to win a key state in elections. Sadly, I heard that Chester County went for Bush - but that's hardly surprising. Our hard work aside, Chester County has never elected a Democrat in 150 years. Still, we did our part. We did our part.

It just wasn't enough.
