If it ain't over 'til it's over, then why do I feel so awful?

The Bush camp, of course, is pushing the "victory is inevitable" line. On the one hand, I think it's irresponsible of CNN to treat that as if it's, you know, news. (The banner headline at right now says "Bush camp certain of win.") On the other hand, for Kerry to pull out a win in Ohio, he'd have to damn near sweep the provisional ballots and the remaining absentee ballots. I don't think that will happen.

Right now I am fighting despair, and losing badly. It comes down to this: if we can't beat this guy, then who could we beat? If we can't make gains in this Senate, if we can't beat Bunning and Coburn, then what do we have left to hope for?
