Sore Losers

Some people just can't accept the fact that they weren't good enough to win. Our dear hometown senator, Barbara Boxer, is one such woman. {Bill Jones, you didn't do nearly enough to defeat this woman, and I'm highly disappointed we still have her as our representative. If you're going out in the race, run to win, darn it. But I accept her as my senator because I'm not like her. Okay, moving on.}

Still bitter from the 2000 election, Sen. Boxer and Sen. Jones from Ohio are now challenging the legitimacy of the 2004 election. Apparently a loss by 4 million isn't satisfying enough. They are calling the Ohio electoral vote illegitmate and have raised an objection before the senate to stop the formal declaration of President Bush's second term.

If you're familiar with Greek mythology, the story of Sisyphus comes to mind. You keep pushin that boulder, Barbara. Maybe someday you'll get it over the hill. In the meantime, learn to accept defeat gracefully. Surprisingly, your candidate, John Kerry, did so. There is one thing you can learn from that MA senator.
