Only in the eyes of the rabid Obamites. Calling Palin "skank" makes you look bad, not her.

Are you sure? Hate and fear can create a hormonal imbalance in your body, sometimes giving you a false feeling of high (but is really just the body's fight or flight coping mechanism).

You can't get terribly much closer than 51% to 48%!

I think it's hilarious that people are viewing this election as a mandate from the American people when the numbers were no where near landslide proportions.

Politicians will never change this country for the better because it is in their best interests to formulate policy around the ideologies of their biggest financial supporters. In this domain, they're all the same, Republican or Democrat.

I did vote Democrat and I didn't see this as a landslide as far as the popular vote. But it only (technically) takes one vote. All the recounts in 2000 taught us that. And yep, almost half the nation was disappointed. I know it is hard. Trust me, I know how McCain supporters feel right now. It isn't easy.

Personally, I wasn't disappointed because I didn't vote for either. I couldn't even bring myself to vote the lesser of two evils because frankly, I didn't think that there was one. Some may say my vote was wasted, but at least I voted my conscience rather than convenience.
