A religion of peace. You know you're losing ground when ABC runs a story like this.

"'Win for Paul! For Paul! For Paul'...Cheering, handshaking, speechifying, yelling, clapping, stomping, laughing and shouting -- there's never been a memorial service like it... Instead of eulogies, stemwinders. Instead of pray for his soul, get out the vote. Instead of weeping, cheering. Welcome to bigtime politics 2002, where a memorial service for a tragically killed senator becomes a raucous DNC rally. All that was missing was the balloon drop...
RALLY ON A CORPSE: DEMOCRATS TURN WELLSTONE MEMORIAL IN TO FIERY CAMPAIGN CALL!"

So reads the headline on Drudge. I watched all that I could stand. (about 10 minutes) Mere words cannot convey my disgust. Robbed of humanity indeed. Bastards.They weren't grieving they were
gloating over the political opportunity. Any indecision I had about who to vote for dried right up tonight. Clinton and Gore and Daschle smiling and whispering to each other. It turned my stomach. I'm sure Wellstone is spinning.

Bee Hoo. I totally missed it at the time but the guy who plays Dumbledore died.

The word disenfranchised has become a signal for me to tune out, because it's guaranteed to be an idiot speaking. A caller on MPR today was talking about absentee ballots and votes for Wellstone. After the guest patiently explained that they couldn't count votes for Wellstone as votes for Mondale (because they were votes for a candidate and not a party,) the caller then suggested that Coleman have an equal number of votes thrown out in order to preserve fairness, all the while nattering on about the disenfranchised absentee voters. Gah!
