Good morning, America

Ils sont fous ces Américains

Joichi Ito says:

... it's unlikely that any sort of recount or technicality will change the fact that today, the people of the United States of America have voted for George Bush. It was close, but the Americans have chosen Bush. It's a sad day, but in a democracy, you get the politicians you deserve/vote for. This was your chance to change your leader and you have failed. For awhile, many of us thought that you had been conned into voting for Bush - that you didn't know he wanted to be a War President. Many people didn't equate the US policies with the people of America. We thought you had made a mistake. Now US policies = US Citizens. You have my sympathies, but it's still your fault.

I think Joichi's statement will hurt those who did not vote for Bush, but it is still true. And unlike four years ago, Bush may also have won the majority vote.

Jochen has a good question for those contemplating emigration:

To which planet?
