GO DEMOCRATS!….I don’t know about y’all, but I’ve been pretty depressed lately. The news from around the world is just endlessly discouraging, the economy kind of sucks, our country seems be descending into a seething rage aimed at pretty much everything, Ted Barlow is on hiatus, and George Bush is likely to be our president for six more years.

Or maybe not. Over at The American Prospect, Mary Lynn F. Jones says that Bush is toast in 2004. She doesn’t actually convince me, as it turns out, since I don’t agree that economic issues are going to overshadow national security issues two Novembers from now, but what the hell. I’ll take all the cheery news I can get, and this is the best stab at it I’ve seen recently.

UPDATE: Hey, Ted is back too! Maybe things are looking up!
