Kerry Concedes

Bush laughing.

Kerry has conceded.

Updates – I’m gonna post fun quotes and reactions here over the next day or so: (the first set from MeFi)

Americans could fuck up a baked potato.

Once again… liberals bitch, conservatives vote.

Americans (collectively) stuck their middle finger up at the rest of the world and I hope the rest of the world does the same back.

According to NPR, only 1 in 10 of the 18 to 25 year olds voted. Hope you like the desert, kids.

Remember that, with a Republican President, a Republican Congress, and a right-leaning Supreme Court, they have no one to blame but themselves when it goes to hell due to a falling dollar, rising oil prices, and flat-lining foreign investment.

I called my dad, a man who’s spent many years fighting for good things. “Get over it,” he said, “The way you feel now is exactly how I felt when Nixon won a second term — crushed. I couldn’t believe America was that stupid. But remember what happened to Nixon that term.”

I’m glad that Americans seem to be more concerned with not letting gay couples share their health benefits than not destroying the world.

Just be happy with the monster you and the rest of the Cult have created at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue tonight. Because he’s all yours.

One thing that is very strange is how much the exit polls differed from the final results, especially in Ohio. Remember that Ohio uses Diebold voting machines in many areas. These machines have no paper trail. Early in the campaign, Diebold CEO Walden O’Dell, a GOP fundraiser, promised to deliver Ohio to Bush. He later regretted having said that.

Co-workers at coffee: one says 'So what do you wear to a civil war anyway?'

We put together an unprecedented ground operation, but it was matched by the zealots on the right. We put forth quality candidates in races nationwide, only to see most outclassed and outgunned by a GOP which ran on three simple tenets: God, guns and gays.

And yet every time a Republican steals another election, we get lectured on how we have to just put it behind us and work together for the good of the country and not make waves and try again in 4 or 8 or 20 years. Bullshit. It’s time to borrow a page from the Republican playbook. Sue. Investigate. Entrap. Scandalize. Obstruct. Delay. Accuse. It hasn’t hurt the GOP any with the voters, it won’t hurt us.

    I think that I am still in the sleepy haze, but I am teary eyed. How can this happen? What is wrong with the world?

    Welcome to the New Americanization, where you now have a mandate to alienate anyone who doesn’t agree with you. As long as you voted for Dubya, of course.

    And that picture… grrr… smug punk.

    “Remember that, with a Republican President, a Republican Congress, and a right-leaning Supreme Court, they have no one to blame but themselves when it goes to hell due to a falling dollar, rising oil prices, and flat-lining foreign investment.”

    Nope. They’ll just blame someone else. Terrorists. Trade issues. You name it, they’ll point at it.

    Four more years of that voice, that face, that arrogant asshole.

    I can’t stand it.

    Curious to know if the suicide rates will go up in the next few weeks.

    Not saying I’ll be one of those… but… just sayin’.

    Poutine anyone?

    on the bright side….

    In 4 years, you can finally elect your first female president with the bonus of knowing that a Clinton has experience cleaning up after a Bush.

    good luck

    It is a sad, sad day…I am ashamed to be from Ohio, I am ashamed at this moment to be an American – but I refuse to let them keep me down! 55 million American’s agree with me – 48% of this country’s population – and that’s a hell of a lot of muscle – and more importantly (something the Republican’s can understand), a hell of a lot of money!

    In two years we’ll take back the House and take back the Senate!

    The thing that I cannot wrap my head around is how so many intelligent and spiritual people I know can vote for someone that my heart tells me stands for all the things that my heart says are wrong. I keep telling myself I believe in the right things, but the resutls surely leave me questioning everything. Still, I like the quote about Nixon’s second term from above. Perhaps impeachment will be on the menu. Furthermore, even though I don’t advocate violence, with all the anti-Bush sentiment in the country and world, I’m surprised that here has not been an assassination attempt on Bush. I believe we average one every 20 years and the last one was 1981. As much as I disagree with Bush, I wouldn’t wish harm on him or anyone, but with the anger in our country and the terrorism, I would certainly not be surprised. I truly hope that our country can find some common ground and unite America so we can avoid any trouble or violence. And quit picking on the gay people!
