The morning after the night before

In: ,

Less than twelve hours since victory seemed uncertain, and the Bush camp is already spinning the heck out of its big victory. What I don’t understand is why the media is swallowing the line about this being an historic victory. I just caught a CBC-Radio teaser, talking about how Bush had won the biggest popular vote ever.

Anyone notice that Bush also LOST the biggest number of votes ever? It’s a little thing called population growth….and a big thing called voter turnout. That’s why elections are won by percentages, rather than absolute numbers. So why are we all buying into the Republicans’ new numbers game?
