... that after four years of "Gore won the popular vote", Kerry is holding out to thwart a far more clear majority on the snowball's chance in hell that he can get Ohio?

Evie's post reminds me of that picture of Manny Ramirez holding up a "Jeter is playing golf today; this is better" sign during the Red Sox victory parade.

Being a good sport isn't just about being a good loser; it's about being a good winner too.

It appears to have been a clean victory; at least we have that to be grateful for this time.

After months of listening to you smear Bush and belittle his intelligence (how gracious of you), there's nothing wrong with a little righteous celebration.

Guess we'll have to get out our Sore Loserman towels for you to cry into.

I don't think I've belittled his intelligence so much as merely pointed it out. All of the audio clips in that "Bush Brain Game" post yesterday were genuine. If the man doesn't know that Africa isn't a country, that's not my fault.

Enjoy your celebration and congratulations on your victory.

They pointed out that Bush has a higher IQ than Kerry. That's one more baseless charge that's bit the dust, unless you think Kerry operates at the brick level.

I have no idea how you or MK construe this thread in any way, shape or form of gloating. I was pointing out the utter hypocrisy of the Democrats. They only opposed the electoral college when it gave Bush the win. If it had worked out to give Kerry the win this time, it's obvious we wouldn't have heard a peep out of the Democrats about Kerry being illegitimate (remember Bobby's whine about a 500K margin when every vote WASN'T counted -- most absentee ballots in states that aren't close never get counted) when Bush won the popular vote by millions.

About good winners and losers, how about a congratulations? LOL.

For my part I'm not gloating although you are entitled to your perception. I'm expressing my happiness for the country that had the wisdom to re-elect a great President. Sorry if it offends you.

Indeed, and by Kerry's concession rather than continuing to drag out the obvious and inevitable he has managed to do something good for his party.

He has managed to soften the well established view of Democrats as "sore losers" which hurt them this election but might not be so much on everyone's mind next time.

by Josh K / November 3, 2004 2:31 AM PST

I think he realized two things:

1. The yet-to-be-counted votes weren't going to turn things around for him.

2. Dragging it out for 11+ days would have been disastrous for the Democratic party.

He did the right thing, and Bush is doing the right thing by waiting until after Kerry concedes to deliver his victory speech.

I read Toni's post, and my own understanding is that she, herself, planned to not do any gloating. The hopes for the remainder of the membership are likely just wishful thinking Wink

"Gloating," in and of itself, is not against the TOS.

You know that no matter who won this election, with all the HooRah going on about it just here in SE, there would be folks who celebrated, and folks who didn't. You can't just STOP the momentum of the rolling boulder - it must complete its course and wind down. And it will do so for the most part.

I'm sure that the same rules for "naughty or nice" will apply to the after-election threads and posts.

We will move on to something other than this election just like we did before (with an exception or two, I'm sure Happy )

Take care,

by James Denison / November 3, 2004 8:59 AM PST

I was hoping it would be a repeat of 2000 but with Bush still winning again, just so I could hear another 4 years of liberals bawling how Republicans STOLE the election from them, TWICE. If it was good the first time, it would have to be ecstasy the second. That was a GREAT time to be alive and watch them squirm and scream, fully believing in their own lies, lies which tormented them to no end. In a way, this 2004 vote now becomes anti-climatic to 2000.

It certainly is gloating, BUT...
by Edward ODaniel / November 3, 2004 1:24 AM PST

it is earned and it is in far better taste than the gloating "progressives" and other ultra Liberals were doing over casualties and the media's failure to report news in preference to creating "news".

Gloating over a Bush victory and Republican gains in Congress is gloating over something GOOD!

As the military personnel were saying, if Kerry had won they were afraid they would be yanked out and have to go back again and start over 5 or 10 years from now.

Now maybe some Supreme Court Justices can go ahead and retire without risking packing by activist judiciary who unconstitutionally legislate from the bench.

See how it just keeps getting better because of the news.

Another reason to gloat over the victory is it proves that most of voting America is not brain dead and can still not only think for themselves but see through fabrications and fictions of the far left media.

The body of the US is far more conservative than liberal which again is a GOOD THING.

We are PROUD of America's rejection of the values Kerry/Edwards and the DNC claimed were presented by Whoopi et al.
