Aftermath

I'm still trying to come to grips with the prospect of a second Bush term here. I recommend a post from Soylent Content offering serious reflections and one from Matthew Yglesias that is less serious.

Obviously, I never liked John Kerry. I trashed him throughout the primaries and I thought it would be dishonest of me to sing his praises on this site during the general election, or even to add a Kerry logo to the page. I thought he was the wrong choice as the nominee all along, and even though he proved a dogged campaigner and competent debater once again, he never was able to energize people against the war and the economic policies of the administration sufficiently. The country really needed someone who could pull this off, and Kerry just wasn't the guy.

Attempts to keep writing this post resulted in some incoherent ranting, which I have just deleted back up to this point. I'll leave my remarks at that for now.
