Talk about a divide…

The Split

Some states lean a little more to one side or another, but overall it’s pretty 50/50 in each state.

So I don’t think it’s quite wise to say that “America has spoken, by mandate of the people Bush is now President” when it wasn’t just the coasts against the middle states… it was in every state.

51% isn’t a mandate. By our electoral college, it was a definite win for Bush. But I wouldn’t call it a definitive victory for him – it was too close for him to remain so comfortable and confident. I don’t think it justifies the arrogance I’ve seen so far from the right wing supporters in my area.

And I’m rather tired of the post-election mudslinging.
