I Blame Diebold, Myself--Or Emmanuel Goldstein

Over at the Chicago Boyz blog, Steven Den Beste spots a contrast in post-election reactions:

2000, Democrats: “We wuz robbed!”
2002, Democrats: “We wuz robbed again!”
2004, Democrats: “We wuz robbed yet again!”
2006, Republicans: “Bummer. Oh, well, we’ll do better next time.”

Read the rest. Apropos of nothing, I love this line on his own blog, where Steve writes: “1984 — A user manual for lefties; a warning for the rest of us.”

On the bright side, at least Ingsoc comes with a pretty bitchin’ soundtrack though. (In a fine example of synchronicity in action, I’m actually listening to it right now.)
