Never Enough Election Victories Department

Here in Washington State, by and large the populace sided with progessive politicians and initiatives, and rejected attempts by the GOP to get their petty revenge against Governor Gregoire. You can see the election results here here.

I wonder if the right wing will reach the wisdom that the main character of Emperor's Prometheus album reached:

He realised that the cheering cries of worship
Were but echoes of his harsh outspoken word
Reflecting back at him from cold and naked walls
In hollow circles fled illusions of wisdom he had heard

"From nothing came all I ever knew"

And he beheld the ruins
Of an empire torn apart
Yet, no grief nor rage did bind him
Just silent and bewildered
By the emptiness
He stumbled off his throne
Just sayin'.
