Some Thoughts and Reflections On the World

    It is enough that the people know there was an election.  The people who cast the votes decide nothing.  The people who count the votes decide everything.
Josef Stalin

The election is over, the results are now known;
The will of the people has been plainly shown;
So let's be friends and let differences pass;
I'll hug your elephant and you kiss my ass.
Frances Matthews

You can fool too many people too much of the time.
James Thurber

All politics are based on the indifference of the majority
James Reston

If Democrats had wanted Gore to be president, they should have voted for impeachment.
Argus Hamilton

America has spoken, but no one knows what she said.
President Bill Clinton

What are you talking about?  Al Gore kept me from becoming president!
Ralph Nader

What I'm saying is, the people have voted twice, and they chose me both times.  We have a responsibility to honor their wishes.
President-select George W. Bush

I feel like an idiot.
87 year old Richard Rosen, a West Palm Beach Jew who voted for a Nazi (Pat Buchanan) accidentally.

At Bush headquarters right now, they are more nervous than a long-tailed cat in a roomful of rocking chairs.

Ashford, MA has the dubious distinction of having exactly none of its registered voters actually casting ballots in that town's Sept. primary.  Even the local town clerk refused to vote when, after 14 hours at the poll, no one showed up.

    A Green Party candidate for the Maine legislature failed to cast a vote for himself so he received exactly zero votes, meaning he had to return the public financing he had received.

    Matthew J. Glavin, president of the conservative legal foundation fighting to disbar Clinton for lying about his sexual escapades, was arrested and charged with public indecency for trying to engage anonymous male sex partners in an Atlanta park.

    Also, one John Paulk, who claimed that "religion cures homosexuality" and who has appeared on the cover of Newsweek in 1998, was "demoted" as an executive of the Christian group Focus on the Family after being caught partying in a gay bar.

    Finally, Mike Trout, another fellow from the Focus on the Family group, was forced to resign when he confessed to having an extramarital affair. ( 2 )

Rank of Bill Clinton among the "most important people in the world today", according to U.S. schoolchildren - #1.

Rank of God according to those same children - 19.

Rank of "myself" - 11. ( 3 )

Let the games begin!
