A Dark Day
Posted by Sam at 12:07 PM

Today is a dark day for America. I just don't get it. Living here in Massachusetts (especially Northampton) makes it hard to believe that this is the outcome. George W. Bush is going to be the President of the United States of America for the next four years. My hands are shaking. My mouth is dry. I'm really scared.

My only hope is that the majority of America is smarter than I am. I sincerely hope that the majority voice of this country (of which I am not a part), chose wisely, accurately, and with foresight. I hope that the majority voice understands things at a level that I do not... because it is clear to me that this choice is not the right one. Apparently however, I've been shown that I am wrong. Democracy has spoken and told me that my choice was incorrect.

America, I earnestly hope that you have done the right thing.

Demorcracy is not telling you your choice is wrong. Just different. Also, it was inline with a large amount of America. Not like you voted for the Red-Green-Tree-FudgeSwirl party, right? (not like that is wrong...)

I don't know that I really liked either choice, but I did make one. It was as close in my mind as it was in the country. We shall see what happens. Worse comes to worse he'll get impeached or I will move to Scotland.

"I'm all in favor of the democratic principle that one idiot is as good as one genius, but I draw the line when someone takes the next step and concludes that two idiots are better than one genius." -Leo Szilard

Sam Who!?
Sam is an amazing and humble guy. Once, he rushed into a burning building, up six flights of stairs to save a kitten from certain death. He speaks eight languages, has mastered three varieties of martial arts, is a wine expert, and is a pulitzer prize winning author. Sam is an international heart-throb who prefers a quiet evening at home knitting afghans for the homeless, to the go-go, glitz and glamor of the party scene. I think the day he won the silver medal for ballroom dancing at the 98 olympics was the happiest of his life. Pretty impressive for a guy who never finished the 8th grade. - Carrie, 04
