We lost… and we lost big. There is simply no excuse. “Blue” America just doesn’t get “Red” America, and we’re shut out of government as a result.

The magnitude of this loss cannot be written off or explained away as a fluke. Sure, we can stand ‘round the water coolers today, complaining about how “dumb” middle-America is, and where we’re all going to seek asylum abroad, (Iceland? New Zealand?)—but that would just play into the Republicans’ hands.

John Kerry lost because the Democratic party is no longer a party of values. How else do we explain the working poor voting in large numbers for the Republicans, and their tax cuts for millionaires? Clearly, something is amiss.

In presidential campaigns, there are candidates of “Reason”, and candidates of “Faith”. Kerry had all the facts on his side, yet he lost. and lost big.
