This news must be a real bummer for the political left, who have managed to convince themselves that they were given a "mandate" by the electorate for their dysfuntional ideological views in 2004.
Much as I hate to be the one to break it to them....I will do so in a gentle, compassionate manner, by appropriating the poetic genius of William Wordsworth. (Sorry, Bill!)
REALITY IS WAY TO MUCH WITH US, MAN
Or, The Left's Lament
Reality is too much with us; day and night,
We'd rather watch Keith Olberman on MSNBC
Or listen breathlessly as Kos makes his decree;
We'd sell our souls--and have--a sordid sight!--
If only Nancy would bare her bosom to the moon,
Whilst Harry sings our slogans and scatters flowers;
And all bow deep in awe before our ivory towers;
But even our dear Deomocrats are out of tune--
They move us not. Dear Goddess! We'd rather die
Proud Marxists wedded to a creed outworn;
Than live in a world where Bush is raised up high..
2008 could make us less forlorn;
Oh, to view Obama soaring in the sky;
Or hear Al Gore blow his doomsday horn!
