11/04/2004: Forgive me....
but I'm a bit of a natural pessimist; for me the glass tends to be half empty, and I'm often more interested in the hole than the doughnut. So when I hear a few of the liberal commentators point out that more voters voted against the Crawford Village Idiot Tuesday than ever voted against any sitting president in history, my mind immediately generates the counter question:
Does that mean more voters voted for Bush than for any other sitting president? [On the other hand, since I've not heard of any wingnuts claiming that yet, maybe it isn't true.]
UPDATE: Air America News verifies my pessimism, stating today that yes, Bush garnered more votes than any other President (or candidate) in U.S. history. Somehow I figured as much.
