I was going to post a memo for president Bush to congratulate him for winning the re-election and tell him what I think he should do in his second term. I think I have to freeze that memo until the Kerry guys are 100000000000000000000% sure they lost.
Anyway, I want to tell you something interesting. Al Arabiyah channel ran a poll on its website asking Arab readers to choose between Bush and Kerry. Readers were also allowed to vote via email. The final number was something like 42% for Bush 58% for Kerry. I personally doubt this 42% that Bush got because it is too high! Anyway, the channel then classified the votes based upon countries and guess what was the ONLY Arab country that voted for Bush in a landslide? Iraq. 80% of Iraqi emails went for Bush.
This election taught me something: NEVER trust the media. I admit that I often considered this media talk a little bit too overreacting, I somehow believed that credible big media such as CNN and New York Times are basically fair and balanced. I was wrong. I stayed up late to watch the elections on CNN and right before the elections even started, their pundits started to talk about the "youth votes", "first timers", "turn outs", and then mentioned how all those factors are more favorable to Kerry. I started to believe that Bush will lose even before Indiana closed its polls. Then guess what??? The difference between Bush and Kerry in the popular vote turned out to be over 3 million!!!! "Youth votes", "first timers", "turn outs" BWAHAA HA HA HA HA HA!!
As soon as this 3 million number became clear, Larry King turned pale and said "what went wrong with the democratic party??" Wolf Blitzer jumped and told him "it's not over yet Larry". I was always skeptical of Fox News, now, I just want to yell: THANK GOD FOR FOX!!
I believe the American people made the right choice and I will immediately post my memo to President Bush when kerry finishes searching in his provincial ballots.
I’ll leave you with a funny quote from National Review:
Here we go again…..
Edwards: We can wait one more night
