“It was an energized (conservative) base - not moderates or independents - that sent Bush back to the White House.”

- Ron Gunzburger, Politics1, 11/4/04


“Arizona voters defied their political leadership Tuesday by approving Proposition 200, a measure against illegal immigration, in a move that could fuel similar grass-roots movements across the West. With 99 percent of the vote counted, Proposition 200 had 56 percent support. The initiative requires voters to show proof of citizenship and those receiving state welfare benefits to present proof of residency or citizenship.

“Randy Pullen, chairman of the Yes on 200 committee, predicted yesterday that the victory would inspire similar efforts in other Western states and draw the attention of state and national lawmakers. ‘When you have the governor, your senators and your congressional delegation against it, you're outspent 5-to-1, and you still win ... it's a pretty clear message that people want something done,’ Mr. Pullen said.”

“Don’t let me down! If you haven’t voted, stop reading this and get down to the polls. Keep calling and e-mailing your address book. This is it. The homestretch. Let’s do it!”

- Filmmaker Michael Moore’s election afternoon message on his website


“The ‘average’ citizen of American voted against those whom John Kerry labeled the ‘heart and soul’ of America. They voted against the traitorous pig Michael Moore and that Whoopity Goldberg woman. They voted against Bill Maher, Barbra Streisand, Alec Baldwin, Cameron Diaz, Robin Williams, Cher, Rosie O'Donnell and the whole damn cast of ‘Friends.’ They voted against ‘celebrities’ who were rude and crude, those who profaned George Bush and his family with the most foul of commentary at each and every opportunity.”

- Columnist Ron Marr


“For a rich and powerful demographic used to getting its way, Hollywood was downbeat yesterday as President Bush - more heinous than a mid-February release date to so many celebrities and other bold-faced names - made his gracious victory speech. . . . Long decried as out of touch with ‘the real America,’ Hollywood woke up to its worst nightmare on Main Street.”

- Washington Times, 11/4/04


“This campaign may end today, but the battle for you and the hard-working Americans who built this country rages on. The battle rages for the factory worker and the mill worker who says, ‘I want to work. I just want a job.’ The battle rages on for the mother who sits in the emergency room with her daughter and wonders how she's going to pay the bill. The battle rages on for the young person who's worked hard and wants to go to college, but doesn't have the money to pay for it. It goes on for the young child who doesn't understand why they're treated differently just because of the color of their skin. And it rages on for the mother who wants to know why her son was sent over there and will not come home.”

- John Edwards’ ungracious, sour grapes concession speech, 11/3/04


“The Democrats and all of their institutions (the media, academia, unions, Hollywood, etc.) threw everything they had into this election. Their 527s outspent the Right. They knocked Nader off a vast number of ballots. They juiced turnout to unprecedented levels. They created documentaries. The lied about the draft. They lied about their candidate. They lied about stolen munitions. They fabricated memos. They even got an assist from the now completely discredited exit polls. And they lost."

- National Review Online columnist Robert Moran


“More Americans voted against George Bush than any sitting president in history."

- Howard Dean, 11/3/04


“The election of 2004 was not just a case of Bush versus Kerry. It was a contest of city versus country, blue collar versus white collar, arrogant elitist versus good ol' boy. It was class warfare in the deepest of trenches, but even after being whipped, dipped and hung out to dry, the high and mighty of the left STILL don't get it. They cannot comprehend how and why they were whomped by a bunch of hicks.”

- Columnist Ron Marr


“Watching John Kerry deliver his statesmanlike concession at Faneuil Hall in Boston yesterday -- and then watching his erstwhile spinners and boosters in the Democratic commentariat blame him for Tuesday's rout -- was like one of those nature shows in which the herd gives up its dying animal to the crocs so it can safely ford the stream. It may be expedient, but it also reflects the flaws of the species.”

- Review & Outlook, Wall Street Journal, 11/4/04


“Let's face it. It's not Kerry's fault. It's not Nader's fault (this time). It's not the media's fault - though they do bear a heavy responsibility for much of what ails our political system. It's not ‘our’ fault either. The problem is just this: Slightly more than half of the citizens of this country simply do not care about what those of us in the ‘reality-based community’ say or believe about anything.”

- Liberal blogger Eric Alterman


“No soul-searching. That was the verdict of Democratic leaders yesterday in the wake of across-the-board losses in the Tuesday elections. They lost, they said, not for the positions they took but because of a difficult election map and because Republicans clouded the issues.”

- Washington Times, 11/4/04


“…(P)ay no attention to the sissy, panty-waist, good government, sanctimonious, upstanding, highly principled, furrow-browed, chin pulling, thoughtful, easily-shocked, commentators, who complain about lying candidates, robo-telephoned slanders, whispering campaigns, stuffed ballot boxes and biased reporting. This is what a muscular, healthy democracy (or a constitutional republic, for you semantic, constitutional purists) looks like when it cares about the outcome of an election.

“This is the kind of election our Founding Fathers and their first-and second-generation sons actually ran from Adams to Lincoln. They accused each other of treason, atheism, sexual misconduct, miscegenation (inter-racial copulation and child-bearing) and whore-mongering. They attacked the wives and children of the candidates. They set up newspapers for the express purpose of lying about their opponents. They wrote nasty anonymous letters.

“They gave whiskey to the voters. They traded offices for votes. They played off class against class, the monied against the poor, the bankers against the farmers. They fought duels, sometimes to the death. They may have written a high-minded Constitution, but they fought elections about the same way that a New Orleans pimp keeps his women in line and fights off his competitors. And they approached the voters about the same way those prostitutes approached their customers.”

- Columnist Tony Blankley


“I will never again ignore the power of conservative talk radio. I am convinced that Sen. Kerry lost because Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity and Laura Ingram, Gordon Liddy, Mike Reagan and dozens of others got their listeners to the polls in unprecedented numbers. Conservatives make a mistake in whining about the liberal print and TV media. They control radio. They have more listeners by the millions than the New York Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe, et al combined have readers. And network TV news has all but lost its credibility.

“In the meantime conservatives on talk radio pound away on the issues, most of them for three hours a day. They arouse their people. They make them aware of the importance of the issues and of the need to vote. They get them to the polls. Conservative talk radio plus the internet bloggers have made the public aware of issues, such as Kerry’s war record, that the mainline media would deliberately have hidden. Without conservative talk radio, John Kerry would have won. There is no other way to look at it.”

- Lyn Nofziger, Musings, 11/3/04


“Mr. Bush could send an early message here if Chief Justice William Rehnquist decides to retire soon due to illness. He could do worse than elevate Antonin Scalia to Chief Justice and nominate Miguel Estrada as an Associate Justice, even as a recess appointment if that becomes necessary. Mr. Estrada is a distinguished lawyer who had the support of enough Democrats to be confirmed for the federal bench but was filibustered by Mr. Daschle. Mr. Bush's voters do not want another David Souter.”

- Review & Outlook, Wall Street Journal, 11/4/04


“The Republican expected to chair the Senate Judiciary Committee next year bluntly warned newly re-elected President Bush on Wednesday against putting forth Supreme Court nominees who would seek to overturn abortion rights or are otherwise too conservative to win confirmation. Sen. Arlen Specter, fresh from winning a fifth term in Pennsylvania, also said the current Supreme Court now lacks legal ‘giants’ on the bench.

“‘When you talk about judges who would change the right of a woman to choose, overturn Roe v. Wade, I think that is unlikely,’ Specter said, referring to the landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion. ‘The president is well aware of what happened, when a bunch of his nominees were sent up, with the filibuster,’ Specter added, referring to Senate Democrats' success over the past four years in blocking the confirmation of many of Bush's conservative judicial picks. ‘... And I would expect the president to be mindful of the considerations which I am mentioning.’

“With at least three Supreme Court justices rumored to be eyeing retirement, including ailing Chief Justice William Rehnquist, Specter, 74, would have broad authority to reshape the nation's highest court. He would have wide latitude to schedule hearings, call for votes and make the process as easy or as hard as he wants.”

“Cupcakes became contraband at Meadowside elementary school (Milford, CT), after Principal Robert Davis banned all celebratory sweets - a move that has made some parents sour. Health officials said Davis adopted a new policy of using games and crafts instead of baked goods to fete birthdays, holidays and special occasions, and praised it as a way to combat childhood obesity. Parent Jack Fowler said no one should dictate what students can bring to school for special events. He said health and school officials have turned into the ‘fat police,’ in an attempt to rid schools of foods children enjoy.”
