Thank the gods! My misery exceeds all my hopes!

A tragedy need not have blood and death;
it’s enough that it all be filled with that majestic
sadness that is the pleasure of tragedy. – Jean Racine

According to Joel S. Hirshhorn’s dystopian fan-fic, Ralph Nader will still be a smug narcissistic asshole in the future.

The final results are in on this historic November day.

Despite the hundreds of millions of dollars he raised, Barack Obama has lost the 2008 presidential election. American voters have boldly spoken truth to arrogance. Turned out that all those pre-election opinion polls that showed Obama’s inability to get over 50 percent support were prescient. Much of the public was never comfortable with Obama, though he clearly was so comfortable acting like he already was president.

[…]

Ralph Nader summed up this way: “A large fraction of Americans know that we need a Jeffersonian political revolution to fix our corrupt system. They were not fooled by the Obama rhetoric about change, not from someone that has been a product of and servant for the two-party plutocracy. Yes, all the votes for me and the other third-party presidential candidates spelled the difference between Obama winning and losing. Our voters correctly protested against the corrupt two-party system. They did not elect McCain. Only those who voted for McCain elected him, and that is something they must live with as they watch a McCain administration continue dismantling American democracy and budget-busting global warmongering.”

…which means that Ralph wins again! And everybody else loses! Again!

Remember: your pain is his imaginary gain.
