My Post-Election Rant

While the LMM (Liberal Mainstream Media) are busy making excuses for Kerry's defeat, delegitimizing Bush's victory and threatening to break up the United States, this particular conservative blogger is also angry and frustrated. I believe our president was robbed: robbed of a landslide victory on 11/02/04.
Still, his victory was perhaps the greatest political achievement in this nation's 228 year history. Not only did Bush defeat a Democrat Party who were prepared to do and say anything to regain power, he also withstood a truly astonishing onslaught by the LMM.
I would compare the LMM's effort to the Ardennes Offensive of 1944-45, when Hitler rolled the dice one last time. The last week of the campaign (missing explosives) can be compared to the Battle of the Bulge. Hitler lost that battle; the LMM lost this battle. Hitler soon lost the war, but what about the LMM? Are they finished? Not yet. They'll hang on a lot longer than the Third Reich did 60 years ago.
And the LMM can take some comfort from the election results. Newsweek's Assistant Managing Editor, Evan Thomas (no friend of the GOP) stated in July that media bias would give Kerry an extra 15% of the votes come election day. If he's right (and I believe he is) Bush would have won the election by 18%, a massive landslide. Bush's margin of victory was small enough (less than 3%) to allow the left to make all kinds of excuses for their defeat: the gay marriage issue, GOP voter fraud in Florida etc. They even have the nerve to demand that Bush reach out to Democrats on Capitol Hill. My advice to Bush is "Don't do it!" You made a huge effort when you first came to Washington D.C. in January 2001, and we all know how that worked out. They had their chance and blew it. Don't give them a second chance, they don't deserve it.
