Four More Years

Since John Kerry has conceded the election, we now know we’ll be getting four more years of George W. Bush as the United States’ President. At best, it probably won’t be much worse than the past four years. At worst, it could be bad, especially if he makes even more bad decisions than he has in the past four years. At the same time, I don’t think electing Kerry would have been better; we would simply have been exchanging one president with his problems, who only about half of the voters wanted, for another president with his own set of problems, who was also only wanted by about half of the voters. I wasn’t excited about Bush or Gore in the 2000 election, and I wasn’t excited about Bush or Kerry in the 2004 election. I sincerely hope that the 2008 election will bring some more interesting (and more worthy) challengers.

In the meantime, I offer a bit of levity: Mena Trott posted today about Canada 2.0. It’s funny. Laugh. Please?

With love from “New America”…
