The Shrub prevails

So it looks like four more years of everyone's least favourite Yale graduate. I know a lot of people who are shocked and disappointed at the result, but, barring any nasty surprises coming out of Ohio, the outcome looks legitimate.

Americans will have to accept that their country is pretty deeply divided on a lot of issues. The Democratic Party hasn't really risen to the challenge, while the Republicans have rallied around the leader with a "say no evil, hear no evil, see no evil" attitude. Both sides will have to develop their arguments and politics in the years ahead.
