Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated. Yes, I admit, I was depressed at the results of the election. I went from denial, to wanting to move to another country, to trying to understand how 59 million people want Bush in the White House, to not caring, to heavy drinking, and finally the realization that four years won’t last forever. We’ll see how the village idiot handles himself for about another fifty months and then it will be over. Right!?

I was in Chicago last week for a manager orientation and training. Thankfully, my promotion and all the distractions that come along with it made the results of the presidential race a little more bearable. All of the training plus the evening dinners kept me from sitting in the hotel room brooding and pulling my hair out. I think that for now, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and Real Time with Bill Maher are two shows that will keep me from going insane during this term. It doesn’t help that President Bush thinks that 51 percent of the vote is a “mandate.” Well, here’s to coping for four more years–good luck to all.
