Eric Alterman explains the election:
Let’s face it. It’s not Kerry’s fault. It’s not Nader’s fault (this time). It’s not the media’s fault (though they do bear a heavy responsibility for much of what ails our political system). It’s not “our” fault either. The problem is just this: Slightly more than half of the citizens of this country simply do not care about what those of us in the “reality-based community” say or believe about anything.
A long rant about how the people "don't care" about a variety of deep and important issues follows. Then, a quote from one Charles Pierce:
As Mo Udall once put it, the people have spoken, goddamn them.
"The people" can be so annoying sometimes. They should just listen to their superiors and not get any foolish notions that they are actually capable of judging candidates and weighing issues that are important to them. Sigh.

Here's to democracy-- the worst form of government except for all the others.
