Dear Frustrated Lefty: (may I call you Frustrated Lefty?) You are confusing your denial and perception of truth with reality again. Just because 78 million Americans who were eligible to vote chose not to do so, does not mean that their “would be” votes would have gone for Kerry. Seeing that you like to deal in hypotheticals, Bush’s win margin, a clear mandate, would be several million more based on the laws of averages. Bottom line, your side lost again and you are rationalizing. Let go of the pain man. It was a fun ride all through the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s for your side. You guys had lots of chances to get it right but you just couldn’t do it. America is on to you now. You’re swirling in your own juices!Have a fun time at the inauguration. Hope to see you on camera Thursday! Peace.
