Hope is slowly seeping in

The blogs I have links to on the right are there for news updates and commentary. They are also there for occasions when I need moral support, and this is definitely one of those times. The following quote that was posted on Kos was itself taken from another blog, which seems to have the right attitude at this moment:

"In 1964, the Lyndon Johnson beat Barry Goldwater by 23 points. Goldwater managed to carry just 6 states and Johnson won the electoral college 486-52. But the conservatives didn't give up. They didn't spend a lot of time wringing their hands. They regrouped and fought back. By 1968, Nixon crushed Humphrey in the electoral college 301-191 and won the popular vote by a million votes. If you oppose Bush, now isn't the time to feel sorry for yourself. Now is the time to get to work."
Tomorrow, we're going back to making the doughnuts.

In fact, the Dark Side won 7 of the 10 elections following 1964--or 6 plus the stolen 2000 election, if you prefer.
