Latte

Sigh.

Well. This sucks. I guess I'm not totally surprised, but I really was hoping against hope that Kerry would win.

That being said, I understand wanting to flee the country, even though it's completely impractical, if not impossible, for most people. While the political situation certainly was far from the main reason I wanted to move to England, it would've been a definite fringe benefit had it happened. For those of you thinking, "Oh, I'll just hop a plane and get out of here," I'll refer you to this post from a few months ago where I explain what it takes to move to the UK. I would imagine it would be similar to most European countries, but YMMV.

That said, the only thing we can really do now is suck it up and realize that Bush only has 4 more years. It likely will not be easy, but let's at least be thankful that he can't run again. In addition, let's hope that we get some better candidates coming along that will be more likely to unite the nation. And one last hope - please, for the love of everything, NO MORE BUSHES IN THE WHITE HOUSE. Stay in Florida, Jeb. And all you Bush kids - find another line of work. Please, for the sake of my sanity.
