Its Over

Well, the American elections are over, and I for one couldn't care less any more. Bush won! Yeeha! Or, uhm, so what? Is there a difference between Kerry and Bush as far as we are concerned? I cant see it.

South Africa and Americas relationship has been a good one since the end of apartheid (not that it was that bad during apartheid), and this generally good relationship is set to continue.

Diplomatic Thabo Mbeki isn't about to be met with a firm back slap and a happy smile at the white house, but then I'm pretty sure there are few politicians in the world that would relish that prospect.

If your pet hobby the last year has been Bush bashing however, my condolences. No, really. It must be tough.

Update: Farrel agrees "...even if Kerry had won I don't think it would have much of a difference for relations between the USA and SA."

Fodder comments "So it's official - four more years.... aarrgghhhhh". Hes right about what it would have taken to win though.

bush bashing doesn't stop just because he won. He is sill the same person and the reason to fear him are now increased.

No. That's precisely because he thinks he's not evil. I don't like people in powerful positions who have hung or electrified prisoners, heard the voice of God, sent the deficit into the sky, started an unjustified war, rigged an election, increased unemployment into record numbers, are not very smart, want to erode basic rights, and I'm sure anybody can list many other qualities of Georgie.

Actually, to be grammatically correct, it would be "'is' not very smart". And you forgot 'he looks like a monkey'.

Anyway, you have my condolences on his victory regardless.
