...and America follows?

... That is, I suspect that Bush was Bin Laden's choice. But that's not to say that his recent little video stunt had much effect on the outcome of the US election.

Read the fine print: all the other issues people voted on, and voted on regardless of Al Qaeda propaganda. It sounds like conservatism would have been in the driver's seat good and proper, regardless of Sep 11.

Not all America took a jump to the right. It was a small but effective majority. I hope that the large minority who will probably now feel alienated for another four years can grit their teeth, and let the circus grind on. After all, the large minority were bound to be disappointed!

I hope it won't the trainwreck, that Len predicts. But if it is, I'm mindful that Australia re-hitched itself as the caboose a couple of weeks ago.

Meanwhile, I suggest that all those democrat minded folk out there take Fred Astaire's advice:
Pick yourself,
dust yourself down,
start all over again.
...Well, OK! Maybe in a day or two. Meanwhile, find a nice, friendly blog to kick!

...And hope the dance floor's still there, come next time.

Whilst we're using dance themes for analogies, I find the words to the chorus of the 'Time Warp' horribly apt:
It's just a jump to the left
And then a step to the right
put your hands on your hips
and bend your knees in time
But it's the pelvic thrust
That really drives you insane
Let's do the Timewarp again
Let's do the Timewarp again

Time to wind down...
