ha... go figure

stolen in total from todays wall street opinion journal:
'Go Figure'
Jon Friedman, a commentator for CBS MarketWatch, is still trying to figure out what happened:

The Bush political team intuitively understood the tone of the U.S. voters much better than the media did. To be honest, I still don't quite understand how certified media junkies like me could have been so wrong.

I read the New York Times and the New Yorker religiously. I watch CNN and the networks' evening news programs as well as the gabfests on Sunday mornings, too.

Go figure.

dude should have spent some time out in blogosphere land. better news, better analysis, better opinions, better feel for the pulse.

and another:
Vote or Die
"Distraught over the re-election of President George W. Bush, a Georgia man traveled to New York City, went to Ground Zero and killed himself with a shotgun blast," reports Long Island's Newsday. Relatives of the dead man, Andrew Veal, "said Veal, a registered Democrat, was despondent over Bush's defeat of Sen. John Kerry."

Newsday visits Ground Zero and interviews visitors about their reaction:

Frank Franca, an East Village artist and registered Democrat, suggested the suicide was symbolic.

"I'm very moved by it," he said. "Obviously, this person was devastated. I can see why he would come here."

Franca's friend, Jeffim Kuznetsov, a 25-year-old student from Russia who lives in Atlanta, said the suicide is evidence of how deeply many Americans were affected by Kerry's defeat.

"It's a national tragedy," he said. "This election is devastating to all who believe in democracy."

Veal obviously had psychiatric problems, but these guys are just plain sick.

whack jobs all around him, no wonder he was a whack himself. the complete ignorance of folks that try to ascribe some meaning to a meaningless act, one of a deranged mind, indicates depths of what? i can't even think of a word that would adequately describe it. wish the dude had used a butcher knife though, makes us gun owners look bad. and he used an illegal gun in NYC, so that makes it even more of a crime. arrest his ass. probably the only part of him left anyway.

sorry. you can take the nook out of the submarine, but you can never get the submarine out of the nook. better quit while i'm still ahead. at least i still have a hea..... never mind
