snichols concedes...
After thinking it over last night, snichols is ready to concede the election to George Bush. The time for division is through...screeetch! NOOOOOOOO!!!!

snichols spent all day keeping busy, retail therapy and the like; the alternative was rocking in a fetal position with her thumb in her mouth moaning.

Meanwhile snichols' readers have been much more focussed on the "internets" and sending her all sorts of tidbits:

**One faithful reader muses that this is really for the best because Kerry would've been set up for failure with a Republican Congress and the mess in Iraq, now the blame will be laid squarely at the Republicans' even larger feet. snichols finds this cold comfort since she already thought the whole f---ing mess was laid at their feet--they've been running the whole show for 4 years!

**Meanwhile in her analysis of the debacle, Arianna Huffington, who possibly is not a devotee of snicholsblog lays the blame squarely at defeat of Kerry (get it, the feet, defeat? hmmm...)

**Another reader feels tempted to blame the whole defeat on gay marriage but then rises above it and realizes that democracy is messy and these are growing pains. snichols admits she isn't feeling very gay today.

**Perhaps to comfort snichols, her most faithful contributor, Bill, offers these two thoughts:
1) The Colorado and Vermont legislatures made decisive Democratic gains in this election.
2) This poem by Irish poet Seamus Heaney:

"History says,
Don't hope
On this side of the grave.
But then, once in a lifetime
The longed-for tidal wave
Of justice can rise up,
And hope and
history rhyme."

Spiritual growth advisory in effect: in an upcoming post, snichols reserves the right to discuss the possibility of forgiveness and reconciliation (but sorry, not today).
