How dismal was election night 2002?
Well, the elephant is out of the barn now. Congress is lost and whither
Congress, so will go the courts.
The talk of war has done its job.
Rove's hopes were far exceeded.
So maybe, with the voting done,
The war itself's not needed.
How quickly the joy fades.
The Republican wave that swept the country seemed to crash and recede
right at the California border, but only barely.
