    Hey, screw you. We're the only game in town, and you know it. Remember, it's us or the Bush/McCain gang. Don't worry, we'll get the price of gas back down to $3.50 per gallon. Don't worry, our guy Barack won't look stupid in front of world leaders, and we'll talk a great game about "greening" the environment. Besides, in a week or two, even the Daily Kos types will forget about this, lost in the latest campaign gaffe or imbroglio. And our real clients -- big oil, giant corportations, the Pentagon -- can continue to do business as usual.

    There, we're all happy. You got some Fox news guy fired, and we get our war and our wiretapping. You get a nicer guy as President, we get to keep our vast military and prison machinery, and do basically what we want economically. Oh, sure, there will be a few more regulations, but hell, we'll find a way to make them work for us.

    So quit your belly-achin'. Vote Democratic, love it or leave it. You're on an elect Democrats only site anyway, right? Hey, they slipped up. But they're not the other guys. Keep telling yourself that.
