Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

No doubt in a few days I'll get over it, but I'm pretty bummed today. No surprise.

A quick scan through the world o'blog this morning shows resignation on the Left. And a certain sense of, "Well, now they have to clean up their own mess, anyhow" which is very true. But with a reported body count of over 15,000 for the first four years, I hate to think where we'll be four years from now, messwise. Also, I'm not thrilled about four more years of this economy.

Three or four of the blogs on the Right that I read (I'll have to adjust the old blogroll one of these days, I've been reading blogs not listed there) posted cynical entries last night about the election outcome. Seems like the same people who couldn't have cared less about a ballot trail a month ago were, last night, predicting the election would be "stolen" by the media and somewhat embittered by the idea. (I've said it before and I'll say it again. Clean, verifiable elections benefit every honest person, regardless of political affiliation.)

In the meantime, I'm back on hiatus.

Oh, if only it were so! If only I believed this sorry lot had the capability or the desire to clean up their own mess. Like a toddler, left too long with a mess in his diapers, I fear the next four years will more likely discover the little tike with a genius for destruction has been painting the walls and floors and sheets and himself with the poo, and now sits grinning in the middle of it all, proud of his ultimate, messy masterpiece!
