Ya know after 2004 there was a lot of shit being flung in our general direction. The right was crowing over their victories and beating us like red headed step children.

Some would say that we should be the bigger people here and extend a concilliatory hand and be sportsmanlike. To them I say...BITE ME.

We watched as editorials were written about us and our loss and as right wing whack jobs used public media to excoriate us and lawd there victories over us. Well, it's our turn now.

I am going to start with a piece written by Peggy Noonan in the Opinion Journal immediately following the 2004 election, one remembered for one word...savor. I sure hope Ms. Noonan is savoring that crow fricasse I sent her....

God bless our country.

He probably will now that we finally started cleaning up our act.

Hello, old friends. Let us savor.

Yes just how does crow with footinmouth sauce taste BITCH?

Let us get our heads around the size and scope of what happened Tuesday. George W. Bush, 43rd president of the United States, became the first incumbent president to increase his majority in both the Senate and the House and to increase his own vote (by over 3.5 million) since Franklin D. Roosevelt, political genius of the 20th century, in 1936. This is huge.

This should now read, George Bush 43rd president of the united states just got his ass handed to him on a silver platter (as did you wingers) because the american people woke're right this is huge.

George W. Bush is the first president to win more than 50% of the popular vote since 1988. (Bill Clinton failed to twice; Mr. Bush failed to last time and fell short of a plurality by half a million.) The president received more than 59 million votes, breaking Ronald Reagan's old record of 54.5 million. Mr. Bush increased his personal percentages in almost every state in the union. He carried the Catholic vote and won 42% of the Hispanic vote and 24% of the Jewish vote (up from 19% in 2000.)

And lost them all two years later from all early predictions...Savor that.

It will be hard for the mainstream media to continue, in the face of these facts, the mantra that we are a deeply and completely divided country. But they'll try!

Care to rethink that?

The Democrats have lost their leader in the Senate, Tom Daschle. I do not know what the Democratic Party spent, in toto, on the 2004 election, but what they seem to have gotten for it is Barack Obama. Let us savor.

Democrats got their leader in the house and for all intents and purposes the senate now...again I ask WHO'S THE BITCH NOW?

The elites of Old Europe are depressed. Savor. The nonelites of Old Europe, and the normal folk of New Europe, especially our beloved friend Poland, will not be depressed, and many will be happy. Let's savor that too.

Funny thing about that, just read they are cheering the American people, ya know, like they used to before Chimpy.

George Soros cannot buy a presidential election. Savor. "Volunteers" who are bought and paid for cannot beat volunteers who come from the neighborhood, church, workplace and reading group. Savor.

Rick Santorum can now hide in his closet from all the man on dog sex....SAVOR.

Volunteers from the jack boot churches and redneck militias could not hold us back, robo-calls and dirty tricks did not win the day...SAVOR.

The leaders of the Bush effort see it this way: A ragtag band of more than a million Republican volunteers who fought like Washington's troops at Valley Forge beat the paid Hessians of King George III's army. Savor.

The leaders of our effort see it as AMERICAN volunteers who fought in the true spirit of those troops at Valley forge and beat back the troops of the modern day King George...SAVOR.

As I write, John Kerry is giving his speech. He looks hurt. Who wouldn't? He fought to the end, for every vote, untiring and ceaseless. I told some young people recently who were walking into a battle, "Here's how to fight: You fight until they kill you, until they kill you and stop your heart, and then you let them carry you out of the room. But you fight until they carry." I think that's how the Democrats fought. Good for them.

Then call us the undead because we rose from "the dead" damn right good for us because we might have been at deaths door in your eyes but that which doesn't kill us only makes us stronger...SAVOR.

To admit defeat with attempted grace is a moving sight. Kerry did well. His talking about his "good conversation" with the president was gracious and helpful. He was honest about the facts of the vote in Ohio. When he thanked his people from the bottom of his heart it was a real thanks. "Thanks to Democrats and Republicans and Independents. . . . Thanks to everyone who voted." "Don't lose faith, what you did made a difference . . . and building on itself . . . the time will come when your votes, your ballots, will change the world. And it's worth fighting for." A lot of pundits and editorialists are going to say, "His best speech of the campaign was his last." But that's not the point.

Let's see Mr.'s Allen and Burns do the same. After all recounts are unpatriotic and might dilute the will of the voters.

Mr. Kerry graced democracy today. He showed his love for it. Savor.

Americans showed their love for democracy yesterday and have shown that they wish to see the taint and tarnish gone from the feathers of the eagle and the shine restored to lady liberty once more. SAVOR.

And now the president is speaking. He looks tired and happy. He looks as if the lines on his forehead are deeper. Maybe it's the lighting. "We had a really good phone call," he said of Mr. Kerry. "He was very gracious . . . and he and his supporters can be proud of their efforts." Good for them both. He announced his agenda: reform the tax code, privatize Social Security, help the emerging democracies of Iraq and Afghanistan. "And then our servicemen and -women will come home with the honor they have earned."

Repeal those pathetic tax cuts, privatize nothing, fix Iraq as best we can then refocus on the Afghanistan we forgot. Our troops can come home with the honor they have earned, it's those in the civilian halls of power who have dishonored them...they can go to jail..

"Today I want to speak to every person who voted for my opponent. . . . I need your support. . . . I will do all that I can do to earn your trust. . . . We have one country, one Constitution, and one future that binds us." All good. Savor.

Hmmmm...didn't work asshat. You failed, are a failure and will now have to face the music...Dance chimpy dance...SAVOR.

Who was the biggest loser of the 2004 election? It is easy to say Mr. Kerry: he was a poor candidate with a poor campaign. But I do think the biggest loser was the mainstream media, the famous MSM, the initials that became popular in this election cycle. Every time the big networks and big broadsheet national newspapers tried to pull off a bit of pro-liberal mischief--CBS and the fabricated Bush National Guard documents, the New York Times and bombgate, CBS's "60 Minutes" attempting to coordinate the breaking of bombgate on the Sunday before the election--the yeomen of the blogosphere and AM radio and the Internet took them down. It was to me a great historical development in the history of politics in America. It was Agincourt. It was the yeomen of King Harry taking down the French aristocracy with new technology and rough guts. God bless the pajama-clad yeomen of America. Some day, when America is hit again, and lines go down, and media are hard to get, these bloggers and site runners and independent Internetters of all sorts will find a way to file, and get their word out, and it will be part of the saving of our country.

Two years later and who are the losers? Those who failed to stop drinking the kool-aid and come back to reality. Those who thrust their fists upon the posts and still insisted they saw no ghosts. The pajama clad yeomen can now go right where pajama clad people go...the nut house. And America can shine again because today America won. The loser is still the MSM who have been drinking the kool-aid even longer than most. Hopefully they too will see the light...SAVOR.

Oh, another last note. Tuesday I heard three radio talkers who refused to believe it was over when the ludicrous, and who knows but possibly quite mischievous, exit polls virtually declared a Kerry landslide yesterday afternoon. They are Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham. The last sent me an e-mail that dismissed the numbers as elitist nonsense and propaganda. She is one tough girl and they are two tough men. Savor them too.

Oh I will savor them alright, as Sean Hannity stutters into a heart attack, as Laura Ingraham is frog marched to Jail for launching a phone jamming campaign and as those mocking spasms old Rush had become real as he tries to sputter and stutter his way through explaining how HE was wrong.

Oh yes Ms. Noonan there is much to savor today. Perhaps you'd like some California Wine with your Crow Fricasse? I am sure SPEAKER PELOSI can recommend some good ones.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
