Moving to Quebec?


Not so fast. There's a lot of shit that needs to be set straight in this country, and we need lots of people fighting the good fight.

There are 55 million of us who thought that George Bush needed to go. We were barely in the minority, but mark my words, our day will come. In the meantime, we have to do everything in our power to temper this administration's radical agenda, and prepare ourselves for 2006 and beyond.

It's frustrating and heartbreaking when you push so hard, and barely lose. It's frustrating to know that people are easily led by mass media and bullshit campaign rhetoric. It's ridiculous that people are so loathe to step outside their bubbles of banality.

Which just means that we have work to do. Sign me up.

Chris, I started reading your blog a few weeks before the election, right when I was sure I would be fired for failing to do anything but read left leaning blogs all day that would make me feel better. Now we've lost the election (again), the Red Sox won, I just got home from Boston (see above for reasons that was depressing) and I'm in bed with punmonia, which I can't even spell- I have plenty of time on my hands to disect the election like a bad first date. What do you think went wrong? Should we lean left, lean right, play dirty like the republicans, wait for more support, find a better canidate?? How do you think we can reach out to the red states when people like you and I (white, educated liberals) are considered the reason people that need the Democrats in office the most find the party so unappealing? These are just some of the thoughts I've had while lying around, coughing up a lung, and reading way too much for my own health. Good luck with your blog. I'll be sure to keep reading. Liz

Well, that certainly seems to be the question of the hour... I posted today on why we lost, and I've got a post on what needs to be done in the works. Right now, though, it's Friday night, and there's beer to be had and poker to be played. Good hearing from you - hope all is well in theater-land.
