Some people have attempted to use insult Bush by insulting the intelligence of his voters. Sadly those stats are actually incorrect as these pages nicely show. Mind you the data is four years old, but the web page has been updated in the last couple of months so I feel the numbers are still acurate.

Its interesting how some people seek to discredit others….

As well, I read one of the best quotes about the election today. Lawrence Lessig is a copyright lawyer from the Sates. And a Democrat.

“Wrong, wrong, yet again, I was, we are, wrong. I was on an airplane last night, from SFO to London, so at least I didn’t suffer the minute by minute awfulness of this result. But it’s 5am PST, and we should remember some principles: When Bush ‘lost’ in 2000, we said it was because (1) he had lost the popular vote, and (2) he had short circuited the count in one state to win in the College.



Bush has won the popular vote. And it would take a freak of nature to imagine the 220,000 provisional ballots would fall strongly enough to shift Ohio. He will win the College. He is our President — legitimately, and credibly.



Our criticism of this administration must now focus narrowly and sharply: on the policies, not on the credibility of the man.”

I thought this to be quite a humble and respectful thing to say. However I am struck by his last sentence. Shouldn’t Democrats already have been focused on Bush’s policies for the past four years?
