So Much to Savor
A big win for America, and a loss for the mainstream media.

God bless our country.
Hello, old friends. Let us savor.

Let us get our heads around the size and scope of what happened
Tuesday. George W. Bush, 43rd president of the United States, became
the first incumbent president to increase his majority in both the
Senate and the House and to increase his own vote (by over 3.5
million) since Franklin D. Roosevelt, political genius of the 20th
century, in 1936. This is huge.

George W. Bush is the first president to win more than 50% of the
popular vote since 1988. (Bill Clinton failed to twice; Mr. Bush
failed to last time and fell short of a plurality by half a
million.) The president received more than 59 million votes,
breaking Ronald Reagan’s old record of 54.5 million. Mr. Bush
increased his personal percentages in almost every state in the
union. He carried the Catholic vote and won 42% of the Hispanic vote
and 24% of the Jewish vote (up from 19% in 2000.)

It will be hard for the mainstream media to continue, in the face of
these facts, the mantra that we are a deeply and completely divided
country. But they’ll try!

The Democrats have lost their leader in the Senate, Tom Daschle. I
do not know what the Democratic Party spent, in toto, on the 2004
election, but what they seem to have gotten for it is Barack Obama.
Let us savor.

The elites of Old Europe are depressed. Savor. The nonelites of Old
Europe, and the normal folk of New Europe, especially our beloved
friend Poland, will not be depressed, and many will be happy. Let’s
savor that too.

George Soros cannot buy a presidential election. Savor. "Volunteers"
who are bought and paid for cannot beat volunteers who come from the
neighborhood, church, workplace and reading group. Savor.

The leaders of the Bush effort see it this way: A ragtag band of
more than a million Republican volunteers who fought like
Washington’s troops at Valley Forge beat the paid Hessians of King
George III’s army. Savor.

Who was the biggest loser of the 2004 election? It is easy to say
Mr. Kerry: he was a poor candidate with a poor campaign. But I do
think the biggest loser was the mainstream media, the famous MSM,
the initials that became popular in this election cycle. Every time
the big networks and big broadsheet national newspapers tried to
pull off a bit of pro-liberal mischief–CBS and the fabricated Bush
National Guard documents, the New York Times and bombgate, CBS’s “60
Minutes” attempting to coordinate the breaking of bombgate on the
Sunday before the election–the yeomen of the blogosphere and AM
radio and the Internet took them down. It was to me a great
historical development in the history of politics in America. It was
Agincourt. It was the yeomen of King Harry taking down the French
aristocracy with new technology and rough guts. God bless the pajama-
clad yeomen of America. Some day, when America is hit again, and
lines go down, and media are hard to get, these bloggers and site
runners and independent Internetters of all sorts will find a way to
file, and get their word out, and it will be part of the saving of
our country.
Last note. As much as anyone, the POW wives of Vietnam, who stood
against the Democratic nominee for president and for the Republican,
can claim credit for the Bush victory. Everyone with a computer in
America, and a lot of people with TVs, saw their testimony about the
1970s, and their husbands, and John Kerry. You could not come away
from their white-haired, soft-faced, big-eyeglasses visages without
thinking: He should not be commander in chief.

Oh, another last note. Tuesday I heard three radio talkers who
refused to believe it was over when the ludicrous, and who knows but
possibly quite mischievous, exit polls virtually declared a Kerry
landslide yesterday afternoon. They are Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity
and Laura Ingraham. The last sent me an e-mail that dismissed the
numbers as elitist nonsense and propaganda. She is one tough girl
and they are two tough men. Savor them too.

The big losers in this election are the American people for many reasons. But aside for all the little reasons, it’s never good for one party to have complete power.

While it’s clear that the Republicans won big, I believe that Bush won will the slimest electoral margin of an incubent President. Correct me if I’m wrong on that one.

And if you think you can ignore the 49% of the people that didn’t vote for Bush, you are wrong my friend.

Its also naive to believe that one true system works or even lasts without breaking into futher derivative groups.
At the birth of America the concept of bipartisan was barely a twinkle in the eye.
Lets look at religon…Christianity among like many religons cant seem to agree on everything…thus smaller divisions.
Lets look at race…outside from the obvious racial differences…even people who are surrounded in homogenous populations start to look for differences in each other…whites considering certain ancestry and nationality to be the “true” white race…blah blah…or the different shades of black…or what province you live in…
People always look for classism to differentiate each other…even republicans and democrats cant agree on everything.
This Ali Gali character here is just another deluded loser who believes the whole world is a conspiracy. It’s quite interesting if not arrogant to think that one person alone is capable of thinking for himself/herself and the everyone else is a fool and a sheep. The extreme liberals do the same thing with the neo-conservatives…a conspiracy. Thats the shame of America. Instead of sticking up for your own principles…you like cowardly mock others to make yourself appear to have larger dick.

i have a small dick. :)

LOL :D :p :;): :laugh: :cool:

Too much information. Anywho, do you drive a Lambourghini? :D (You know you’re my boy Teej, just ribbin’. :) )

She: "Who you going to satisfy with that thing?"
He: “Me.”

I’m soooo sorry to hear that, teej. I’d like to say that I understand, but…well… :( Guys, let’s take up a collection, we gotta help our friend in need!

$4000 AU will get you an extra inch, so I was told today (by the guitarist in my cover band. REALLY!)


For $4000 I think it would be easier to find someone that wouldn’t care if the inch was there or not…maybe even find more than one, even it they were lying. :)
