Election Humor

A bit of humor...

While this election has made a lot of people depressed, it's somewhat reassuring that some of us can still have a bit of humor about the situation. The best comment I've heard so far regarding the outcome of the election is from my co-worker:

"It's like getting a dead puppy for Christmas."




Well, it's done, people. The election is over. At 1pm this afternoon, John Kerry will be giving his consession speech, and Bush will be declared the victor.

Y'know, I am not a huge political person. I was never really driven to vote for or argue or even care very much about politics... Until this year, that is. Now, I'm not about to rant and rave at Bush and his campaign... To be honest, I am speechless. My brain is having too much trouble trying to understand what more than half of the country thinks a leader is. I just don't get it. Or maybe it would be more accurate to say: I just can't believe it. This whole election has me feeling a great loss of faith in the intelligence and enlightenment of "we, the people". Or at least half of them. Ach... I can't even think straight.

But, before I sign off, allow me to quote the West Wing:

"A funny thing happened when the office [of the president] was demystified. It left the American people with the impression that anyone could do it."

Hope and pray, people.
