Well all is said and done, and I'm flabbergasted. I guess I just wasn't cynical enough, because the small mindedness, selfishness, and just plain stupidity on display in this election has totally caught me by surprise.
I'm not surprised or disgusted that Bush won. Disappointed and worried, yes, but my current ire towards the American public is based on something else.
Look at CNN's exit polls. Scroll down to "Most Important Issue".
What topped the list for Bush voters?
Moral issues, apparently, exclude the anywhere from 14 000 to 100 000 dead Iraqi civilians.
That's right, folks. The most important issue in this election was whether or not fags get to marry. Totally pathetic, and excuse me while I write off social conservatives in the US as raving idiots.
