The View From Eight Time Zones Ahead

Arnold Schwarzenegger's first movie was "Conan The Barbarian", in which he is asked, "Conan, what are the greatest things in life?" He answers, "To meet my enemy on the field of battle. To see him driven before me. To hear the lamentations of his women." Under the 'lamentations' category we have this delightful article from England's The Guardian. I didn't personally experience the horribly inaccurate exit polling, as I imposed a media blackout on myself until the polls closed on the West Coast, so I missed out on all the angst. The good people of the Sceptered Isle went to sleep right in the middle of it, thinking that Kerry had won in a landslide. The poor dears!
