Poll question: In your heart of hearts, what do you really think happened 11/2?
Advertisements [?]
Obviously, some of these aren't mutually exclusive. Pick the one you think is most true, or choose other and elaborate on your answer below.

Please no flamewars here. If you want to post flamebait, do so on your own thread.

I'm kind of leaning towards the 527s (Swift Boat/ NRA). I'm in SC where they had practically no worries about losing and yet they bought time on the local Fox affiliate (or maybe the whole network, I don't know) during the time slot where either the early or late football game would have been to trot out the same old slanders. I can only imagine what it would have been like in a battleground state. I suspect that those who crow about what a great fundraising job the Kerry campaign did aren't counting totals that include 527s. I bet that overall they kicked our asses.

Poll result (238 votes)
Republicans stole it again (205 votes, 86%)Vote
Republicans won it outright because Americans are idiots (6 votes, 3%)Vote
Republicans won because they're better at 527 slander than we are (8 votes, 3%)Vote
Republicans won because of moral issues (4 votes, 2%)Vote
Republicans won because of security issues (5 votes, 2%)Vote
Bush won because he's more likeable than Kerry (not something any of us can buy into, but I guess it must be possible) (1 votes, 0%)Vote
9/11 changed everything (eg, Jesus is now a bloodthirsty psychotic) (1 votes, 0%)Vote
Democrats lost due to feckless campaign(s) (3 votes, 1%)Vote
Democrats lost due to DLC chicanery/ incompetence/ DINO tendencies (4 votes, 2%)Vote
Other (specify below) (1 votes, 0%)Vote
