Now that it is official, I can offer my congratulations to George W. Bush for winning his second mandate. It was a long, hard, nasty battle but in the end I believe America chose the right person. I guess the importance of this election is shown in the fact that I stayed up into the wee hours of the morning watching an election that does not even involve my own nation! I found it fascinating that in the end Bush won because more people were concerned with issues of values, especially in regards to abortion and homosexual marriage. Terrorism, Iraq and the economy were important, but it was the valuing of traditional values which won the day for the Republicans.
I have to say, though, that what I love most about Bush’s victory is that millions of actors, musicians and other horrible celebrities spent millions of dollars of their money and weeks of their lives promoting a lost cause. It seems to me that the celebrity vote is an accurate indicator of who Christians should not vote for. If they all lobby for one person, you can be quite sure you want nothing to do with him!
So now we get to look forward to three years of badmouthing George Bush and the gradual rise of Hillary Clinton. Guiliani vs Hillary in 2008?
And now I leave you with this picture, a prophetic sign given by Michael Moore prior to the election as he reflected on his position and the position of John Kerry as of 2:00 PM on November 3, 2004.
