Reality and the baseness thereof

One of the more amusing results of the Bush re-election has to be the sight of Democrats trying once again to come to terms with the continuing refusal of the American electorate to see things their way. Last time the narrowness of the result allowed them to fume that they "wuz robbed", with some even denying that Dubya was in fact elected President.

This time, unfortunately for them, there is no such easy way out. With George W Bush the decisive winner of both the collegiate and the popular vote, it would seem that even the most hardened Democrat would have to accept reality. However, despite adopting the modest mantle of the "reality-based elite" it looks like adjusting to reality is as hard as ever. I feel that a Web metaphor might help.
