  •  He's a god now (4.00)
    Early on November 3 when it was looking like Kerry was going to concede, I sent an e-mail to a friend of mine saying that Bush was going to think his narrow win was a mandate, and included an MP3 from Matthew Sweet's "Altered Beast" - the excerpt from the movie "Caligula" where Malcolm McDowell as Caligula does this memorable bit:

    "I have existed from the morning of the world and I shall exist until the last star falls from the night. Although I have taken the form of Gaius Caligula, I am all men as I am no man and therefore I am a God.  I shall await the unanimous decision of the council."

    All those in favor, say Aye.

    Aye! (screams Caligula when greeted by silence)

    Aye...aye...aye...aye (agree the frightened sheep).

    He's a god now.
