According to Greg Palast, "Kerry won." How does he know? Exit polls:
Most voters in Ohio thought they were voting for Kerry. CNN's exit poll showed Kerry beating Bush among Ohio women by 53 percent to 47 percent. Kerry also defeated Bush among Ohio's male voters 51 percent to 49 percent. Unless a third gender voted in Ohio, Kerry took the state.
Exit polls? I'd trust them about as much as I trust IQ scores.

UPDATE: Some more reactions to the election that don't necessarily demonstrate denial but rather .... well, I'm not actually quite sure what they demonstrate. Anyway, here are some photos of a post-election rally in San Francisco (warning: foul language). I'm sure there is a nuanced explanation why threatening to attack a local McDonalds is a proper response to a Bush victory.

And here is the venerable Joan Baez channeling a "fifteen year old poor black girl named Alice from Turkey Scratch, Arkansas" in a way that I can only hope that most polite company would deem as offensive. (hat tip to Dean's World for both links)
