Champs and Chimps

Doug Forrester just gave a great speech conceding in Jersey. As one analyst just said, "It's tough conceding after you've spent $30 million."

But here's the rub -- in folding, Forrester said, "It was always about the children. We did it for the children."

He ran an ad with nasty quotes from Jon Corzine's ex-wife because of the children?! What?! His wife proclaimed he was pro-choice on New York and Philadelphia television for the children?! Somebody please explain this to me, because I'm honestly at a loss.

While Forrester was being gracious and praising "the children" he did it all for (whoever they are), the Bush-lovers in Virginia are already hopping mad, because while God has anointed Republicans to claim political offices, that pesky ballot box is posing a problem again and the Almighty couldn't swing 50,000 votes.
"We're not doing as well as we should be," said John Hager, a Republican former lieutenant governor, Washington Post staff writer Michelle Boorstein reported. "We have a Republican president we all love, and the media will spin this into another anti-Bush thing," he lamented....

At a Republican rally, Kilgore supporters stared grimly at the television screens as the race was called for Kaine. Many booed, giving a thumbs-down to the news and not ready to concede four more years out of power in a state that last supported a Democrat for president in 1964.
Oh, Boo-Hoo-Hoo. You know if Jerry Kilgore won, they'd be screaming domination: "The people have sent a message to all these God-hatin', gay-lovin', baby-killin' librrrals who hate George Bush that their values are not Virginia's values."

Deprived of the right to say that -- because the people have sent a message that Kilgore's pro-death values are not Virginia's values -- they're gonna stamp their feet and cry like babies. To quote Jimmy Mac's poem:

When in wonder/
when in doubt/
run in circles/
scream and shout.

Who ever said democracy had to cut both ways?
