While I'll go so far as to allow the crybaby pic lampoons an organizational entity, a political party, the other examples do the same, their focus being by extension the political party iconofied as a particular individual.

I'll also opine that it is my impression that if there is perceived to be a difference, that would be indicitave precisely of the sort of reasoning responsible for the recently demonstrated accomplishments of The Democratic Party. If that perception is accurate, obviously there is no point debating the point.

never mind osso... i think i get your drift now.

sure there are lines where a point becomes an attack. and nearly everyone here has crossed it on occassion. sometimes purposely and others, well a little too much zeal. i just edited a post i'd done a day or so back because i felt like i'd unintentionaly done that. and it wasn't even that bad, but i'm really trying to practice what i said and critique the idea, not the person.

there are a couple that really challenge that commitment. but i'll keep trying.

welcome to the age of global warming
I would just like to take some time to mourn the loss of our planet under the George W. Bush era. I just read an article today about how the melting of the polar ice caps is adding too much fresh water into the atlantic oceans, messing up the currents there. Eventually, if too much fresh water is added, we could have The Day After Tomorrow for real.

I'm resurrecting this thread because I think it can serve as a reminder to us about how others feel when the outcome of an election is not to their liking (or when it is, for that matter). I'm fortunate enough to be ecstatically happy about the outcome this time, but I remember a time when I truly believed that the country had made a huge mistake and could not bring myself to support the winner. I also remember how some people were gracious and others not so much. That's just life.

It's hard to see Timber's posts here. Makes me wonder what he'd think this time around.

@FreeDuck,
I am not thrilled - but I am not crushed either. This is a great country to live in - I prefer to focus on hope for the future with our new President.

@mismi,
Did you have a preference, mismi, or did your candidate not make it out of the primaries? Just curious.

@FreeDuck,
To be honest FreeDuck - I was not thrilled with any of the choices. I liked Mitt Romney and felt he would have been good, he was just so nice...but I really was not even sure about him. The way it turned out I just had to vote for the one who stood for more of what I believed in. But it never sat well with me....I am just ready to have all of this angst and rumor mongering over with and move forward.

@mismi,
That makes sense. I think we will move forward save a few wingnuts. I believe folks in this country mostly believe in democracy and in giving new leaders a chance. So here's to moving forward.

@Ticomaya,
I hadn't forgotten it, Tico. You have always been gracious in victory and in defeat.

@Ticomaya,
How are you doing, btw, Tico? Did you have a post-election hangover? Did you pinch John Voigt's ass?

@FreeDuck,
No hangover, but I must say the drinks were awesome. I'm not kidding -- a couple pieces of ice and fill the glass with some very good Scotch. And they were complimentary too, which made them taste even better. But I was planning on driving home, so I nursed a couple of drinks over the evening.

I'm not sure how I ended up in the VIP room, but there were all kinds of high rollers and national movers and shakers in there. Phil Gramm was wandering from TV screen to TV screen, engrossed in the returns as they were coming in. He lead the cheers when they announced McCain had won Texas.

(I resisted pinching his ass, despite the great temptation.)

@Ticomaya,
Were the drinks free, as you had hoped? I'm surprised the Arizona Republicans would do such a socialistic thing, but then McCain has always been a maverick ....

@Thomas,
They were free, and I credit your good wishes in that regard.

They were -- of course -- not free for the masses of proletariat or petty bourgeoisie not permitted into the VIP room.
