"You cannot qualify war in harsher terms than I will. War is cruelty, and you cannot refine it; and those who brought war into our country deserve all the curses and maledictions a people can pour out." - William Tecumseh Sherman

  Looks Like Bush Has Won
Well, it appears that Bush has been re-elected. I've just heard on FoxNews that Kerry may have just called the President to concede defeat. We'll see if it's true, but it doesn't really make a difference - Kerry has lost, and Bush has won. One good thing: it seems Bush has won both the electoral college and the popular vote, so their is very little wiggle room for any lawsuits.

However, overall I'm pretty depressed from the whole experience. Bush has been re-elected, the Republicans are extending their grip over the House and the Senate, thereby increasing their majority in both houses. I had hoped that if Bush won, maybe the Republicans would lose their majority, so we could at least count on some gridlock. Forget that.

One encouraging (and partially discouraging) note - Alan Keyes, the rabid Christian talk show host who ran against Barack Obama in Illinois has lost by a landslide (something like 73-27). This is heartening, because I interpret it to mean that unabashed religious zealotry is not supported by most Americans. The disheartening part is that if it gets dressed up in a suit and has a good feel to it, they'll swallow it hook line and sinker.
