I Guess It's Official Now - It's Bush

Kudos to Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Representative Stephanie Tubbs (D-OH) for formally protesting that the Ohio electoral votes "were not, under all known circumstances, regularly given." Though this had no effect on the eventual certification by Congress of the election results, it did shine a spotlight on the Ohio voting irregularities, forcing the media to write about something they would clearly rather avoid acknowledging.

As for the suggestion of Representative Ric Keller (R-FL) that Democrats learn a "wise saying" used in Florida over the last four years and "get over it," I can only refer Mr. Keller to a saying we use here in California. Bite me. It's gotten more than a little tiresome repeatedly hearing since the election that those who didn't vote for Bush need to set aside our differences and rally behind the President. The differences, as most everybody seems to acknowledge these days, are deep. The notion that we can set aside our beliefs and support a man who goes against most things we believe make this country great perhaps reflects the discomfort Republicans feel at actually supporting this man and the intellectual and emotional shallowness of their beliefs.
