It's Finally Over

Na na na na...
Na na na na...
Hey hey hey...


That's it. Bush wins.

You know what's great? I was in my political science lecture when Kerry conceded, and we found out about it when some girl got a text message and told the professor. After this, one guy in the class, who had said a few minutes earlier that he couldn't understand how anyone could vote for Bush, provided the following quote:

"The apocalypse is coming."

Yep. Such rational people. It's hard to believe they lost.

Things that came up in my CPS class (not verbatim):

-"Four more years of jobs..."
-"My friend sent me some information on becoming a Canadian citizen."
- "The Supreme Court is going to set everything back 50 years. You'll have to go to Europe for stem cells and abortions."
- "[Republicans are] complaining about extra votes in some machines? Hey, how did you [Republicans] win Florida last time?"

I mentioned that this was a computational science class, right? And this was just among students waiting for the (extremely incompetent) TA to show up with the exams.

I love the sound of moonbattery in the afternoon. Sounds like...victory.

Semi-Intelligent Comments

May I add what I heard today?

"It ticks me off. I did everything that I could. I voted for Kerry and my state agreed with me. It annoys me that all those other states went against him. I did all I could do, but there should be more that I can do to change it."

"It's all those bible belt people on the Christian right that ruined this for us. How do they get off ruining this election for me."

(and many variations of) "Damn it! Now we're all going to get drafted."

And some girl got a call this morning telling her Kerry lost - she started balling.

My dad thinks we're slaves to the Saudis right now, that the economy will hurtle into a depression, and that legislators will suddenly shift toward evangelism and homophobia. He's like the anti-conservative-nutcase.
