    Excellent night last night!

    I find it funny democrats were thinking they would have strong turnout, and the MTV rock the vote was wanting to make young people vote democrat - but really no more young people voted this time than last time

    Why do you think that? It's pretty obvious that Bush won. He got the electoral and the popular this time. No contest. Kerry's done.

    It's a symptom of the pure hatred many in the Democratic party feel for Bush. He could have won by 10 million votes in the popular vote and gotten 450 E. college votes and some would still claim he stole the election.

    I don't know what's uglier - the Democrats who are throwing a hissy fit because they think they lost, or the Republicans who are gloating like spoiled brats because they think they won.

    I can't remember this nation being more fragmented than it is right now. Why hatred? These are your countrymen, people. Remember United We Stand, Divided We Fall? We're leading this country down the road to self-destruction, and not because Bush remains in office, but because 'We the People' hate each other. Other Nations are disgusted with us. The terrorists are laughing at us. And we can't get beyond our self-definition of ourselves by political party long enough to right the proverbial ship.

    You shouldn't blindly fall into line bwhind your leader if you think he's wrong - you should always question and work for change. But you've got to take hate out of it. Hate has to go.

    There's a real "North vs. South" sentiment bubbling just beneath the surface of the country, and that worries me. We are a country not only at war with the terrorists, but at war with ourselves as well. No good can come of this.

    Everybody except Fox News called Florida fairly early. I would think if anybody would have called those states, it would be Fox.

    On a side note, AAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    On a lighter note, I was watching the returns on CBS, and Dan Rather's little euphemisms gave me the giggles all night long. "Hotter than the Devil's anvil" and "don't taunt a gator 'til you've crossed the creek" were my personal favorites.

    Would it be possible to start a Republican Gloatfest thread? I would sure love to let out years of vent up frustration and laugh at Democrats, not with them.

    I saw Robert Redford say he was moving to Ireland if Bush won. I wonder if he needs help?

    BTW, I am kidding about the gloatfest, sort of. I just want to make fun of the likes of Robert Redford and Michael Moore.

    The news media loves the overtime aspect of this. More air time for the news division, more viewers for the cable news outlets.

    See, I don't find this amusing at all. These are the kind of comments that will anger some of the more left-leaning people on this board, and then comes the sniping and arguing, and when the dust clears everyone's just angrier at their 'enemies.'

    Of course, "it's just a joke." Right. Well, jokes still sting.

    Things are just going to keep getting worse in this country until we can move past the Red/Blue Divide. Maybe we can look at our opponents' views analytically and reasonably, as opposed to getting angry because they don't agree with us. Maybe we might even find some common ground.

    Or maybe we'll just keep on fighting with and hating each other. Why anyone would want to do that, I don't know. I honestly don't.
