    Yeah, amongst the Americans, it's the election. Almost every member
of the media is for Kerry, and 80% of the people aren't liberal. (Those
generally outside NYC, LA, DC).  And so many people learn their politics
from a few seconds of CNN instead of actually _watching_ the State of
the Union address, so most people are hypnotized.

    If it's like the 2000 election, and all signs say it will be, it'll
be months of this stuff.  I'm gonna try not to get too stressed, but be
aware: Kerry's gonna claim victory, no matter what the outcome, and then
starts the parade of lawyers.  So...sorry, it won't be over anytime
soon.  :(

    Yeah, I'd think so.
