    The election in the USA

    Will it really take eleven days before the results?

    Anyway, my news source reports 254 Bush, 252 Kerry with Bush leading in Ohio, so it looks like Bush gets another four years.

    it shouldn't take more than today. Even after the psychotic episode that we went through in 2000 it has to be clear to even the democrats that this isn't an issue of miscount.

    I for one am very pleased with this.

    Well the world now must really hate us, with Bush getting 51% of the populer vote. 3.5 Million more the Kerry.

    Bush has a lead of 134,019 votes in ohio. It's highly doubtful that Kerry can get enough provisonal ballots to change the election results. Even if you use the democratic estemate of the provisonal ballots of 200,000 he needs slightly more then 2/3 of them.

    "You're with us or against us"
    "Wrong war wrong place wrong time"
    "Flip flop!"
    "Unfit for command"
    "Kerry is the most liberal member of the Senate!"

    This election is proof that if you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes true. But hey, you keep on living in fantasy land where your candidate doesn't rely on ridiculous rhetoric just as much as anyone else.

    "unfit for command" was a title of a book. Not recited by bush during the campaign. "Wrong war, wrong place, wrong time" was Ted Kennedy's phrase! It was mocked by Bush.

    But I'm not saying that catch phrases aren't usable. Just that they can't be the meat of your campaign. They were all Kerry had.

    And twisted into something most people thought Kerry said.

    > Not recited by bush during the campaign.

    No, but I sure heard a lot of his supporters saying it.

    > They were all Kerry had.

    Wow, you didn't pay attention to this election at all, did you?

    Actually Kerry did say it repeatedly. He thought Kennedy was clever on that one I suppose.

    I suppose I wasn't paying attention when during the debate (which kerry supposedly won) Kerry answered every question with:

    "I have a plan for (insert the issue here). That is that this president has failed to act on (insert the issue here). He's done everything wrong on (insert the issue here), and the American people deserve better."

    Now I must not have been paying attention because I didn't hear a plan in there anywhere!

    If you want to get technical about it, the results won't be known till Jan 6 when the electorial votes will be counted.

    Link to a speech where he did, please
    I suppose I wasn't paying attention when during the debate (which bush got his ass handed to him in) Bush answered every question with:

    "Look, if you don't vote for me gays will be humping in the street and terrorists will bomb the crap out of you because they're petrified of me!"

    Now I must not have been paying attention because I didn't hear a plan in there anywhere!
    I'm done with you.
