    Bush <strike>Bushwhacks</strike> Neck In Neck With Gore


    Linguica

    Now, this isn\'t Doom news exactly, but since it happens only once every four years I figured it would be somewhat important, at least for all you Americans out there. George W. Bush has been declared the next President of the United States as of 2:20 AM EST. Looks like the Doomworld poll which showed Bush with a very slim win over Gore was pretty accurate as this has been the closest election in a very long time. Update 5:00 PM EST: OK, so Bush doesn\'t have it quite as wrapped up as was previously assumed. This could take a while.

    Man, still can't believe George "Duh" Bush won. I thought Gore would pull through in the 11th hour with Florida, but obviously that didn't happen.

    But hey, I highly doubt that the country would be that different if Gore had been elected president, anyway.

    Bush won.

    It has come to my attention with this announcement that the American public, the vast majority of it, is comprised of BLITHERING FUCKING IDIOTS. Why on EARTH they would vote for such a wishy-washy, dishonest man who likes to use hyperbole to stretch "facts" is beyond me. Personally, it'd be a slap in the face to vote for a guy who doesn't know the meaning of the phrase "subject-verb agreement".

    Come ON, people. He has the intellect of a cinder block! The man can't conjugate the verb "be"! HE'S A FUCKING FRAT BRAT!!!

    Guess it's time for me to start developing a drinking problem.

    George W. Bush won and frankly I'm glad! My first 4 years in the Marine Corps will pretty much parallel his presidential career (at least for the first 4) and at this point I'm happier to be working for him rather than anyone else.
    He was the best of the worst and it's a very very good thing he won. Who would you rather? Gore the puppet? Nader the Socialist? what the government needs is a swift kick in the pants and I finally think it'll get one.

    Sincerely,
    The SuperFly

    It would have been much better off with the Gore-guy. Despite his name he wanted lesser guns from what I have heard. And wasn't he more left wing? This was sad news...

    Heh, looks like I'm the only one with any sense who stayed up this late.

    More like "swift kick to the ground". Bush embodies the failure that public education can produce. (I was public schooled, so don't start with me there :p)

    Sound familiar? Or do you refuse to forget that the man that was just elected as our next president caused 3 of his father's businesses that were given to him to completely TANK? He was a failure then, and he's a failure now. You'll be singing a different tune when he runs the country like those 3 deceased companies.

    I hope you're happy with the simpleton you just elected.

    one of swedens largest and most respectable newspapers, "Dagens Nyheter" (www.dn.se) had a poll on their site for who you'd have voted for if allowed to parttake in the american election. Gore got 65%, Bush 17% and nader 13%. The rest chose the option "vote blank".

    I'd have gone for Nader any day.

    I can't believe American people voted for someone whose skills in international politics are so clearly low. Come on, this guy can't even make the difference between some African and Asian countries ! I agree the man on the street can't either, but this guy is supposed to run one of the most powerful countries in the world ! (sigh)
    Pretty bad news for Europe if he becomes President, too ... oh well ...

    I'm listening to CNN right now and apparently, things AREN'T so sure as far as Florida is concerned. Votes are being re-counted. Will we see an unexpected turn of events ??? I doubt it, but we can always wish :-)

    Florida was REALLY careful with their vote count in hindsight of the first mistake. Since the count was so close, they automatically have to do a recount. I seriously doubt that the outcome will change.

    I wasn't following that closely until a few hours ago. Was playing curling.

    The news just said that margin between Gore and Bush in Florida is about 1,200, and over 5,000 votes left to be counted. Chances is things can turn around...

    Yeah, they have to. The count was close enough to mandate it.

    I'm a native Floridian, so if they do the stupid thing I'm gonna burn my Florida flag and cut the word "UNCLEAN" on my forehead with a blunt, rusty fish gutting tool.

    Sounds like these funky people out there in the rain will have to wait a little bit longer before dancing again on 2Unlimited's "Are you ready for this" ... :-)))

    Congratulations with the move from democracy to theocracy.

    I really dig Bush, and I totally agree about atheists not being proper Americans living in the land of the free. Lets hope for some more capital punishment too!
