Your Favorite 2004 Election Moment

Thu Nov 04, 2004 5:46 am

So, to start putting a close to the 2004 Elections, what were some of your favorite moment(s) of the 2004 Elections.

RULE: YOU CANNOT SAY "THE RESULT OF THE ELECTION"

For me:
"I heard about rumors on the internets..."
"Need some wood?"
"Look Lois, the two symbols of the Republican Party: an elephant, and a big fat white guy who is threatened by change."

"I actually did vote for the $87billion...."




Also, not directly a part of the election, but I LOVED the JibJab videos!  Big thumbs up

When Chris Wallace asked Brit Hume if he could take Jon Stewarts bet that he would not call Brit 'poo-poo daddy".

That or when Russert and Brokaw were consoling each other.

Maybe when Rather got all folksy about 0330, and told Leslie Visser to not despair, we're Americans and we don't do that.

The moment the very last political ad for this election ended.

I liked when Edwards said some nice things about same-sex marriage in his debate with Cheney and Cheney just thanked him. It was one of the most unpolitical events and one of the most human......

Of course Edwards' wife opening her big trap and judging the Cheney's relationship with their daughter a scant week later was pathetic....

I have two moments.

1. When the election was over, and the TV stopped broadcasting 24 hours of it over here. (Like many americans say, why should norway give a toss about who they elect as President? I agree.)

2. My second favourite moment has not happened yet, but it is when I can enter the non av. forums and not be met with 2890 threads about the election.

I believe the debates were mine because it's a great feeling to have the two candidates and see their reactions to each other's answers.

Best quote on the election

Alaska state senator Sen. John Cowdery, on why he was supporting Bush:

I'd have to say, Nov 3rd. When the phone stoped ringing. Any who lives in Florida knows what I mean.

The debates. I voted for Kerry, I am a loyal Democrat. The debates finally put the canidates in front of the public, show their personas and have to answer some questions, put out policy. While in some respects they were highly pre-scripted as to expected questions, they made the canidates have to think on their feet, on there own.

As someone else said, Kerry's summation of his flip-floping in one sentence about the 87 bil...An excellect short soundbite that was perfect for us to use against him!

Best Kerry moment.

Remember the SUV press conference?

The one where he said that he would never own an SUV, then a reporter askes about the Cadillac Escalade in the driveway in Aspen.

The long days spent standing on the main road here in Cocoa Beach, holding Bush and Bush Country signs, waving at all the cars, in the hot sunshine...good times.

My favorite moment was probably when, during the third and final debate, the person that most of us 280 million people in the United States calls Mr. President said, and I quote "President Reagan standed up to the Soviet Union." My English teachers, from grade school all the way up through college, would not have been proud of our President.

When the night before the election, that man, Susan Estrich proclaimed that she had absolutely no doubt that Kerry would win. Haha!

Michael Moore's fat ass go from city to city in losing cause.

Watching every loser, out-of-touch Hollywood celebrity try to garner support for Kerry, only to come out on the short end of the stick

BN747's "Kerry will get 311 electoral votes" prediction

Watching the liberals and Euros moan

Watching Alp..err..Falcon obsess.

Seeing one of the greatest presidents ever to be elected, accept Kerry's concession

Reading all the pathetic, uninformed quotes in the student newspaper from the Kerry supporters.

Watching my housemates go into depression as the rest of us were busting open the champagne.

Posting a sign that said 'Victory!' above my Bush/Cheney '04 sign

Being thankful that the obnoxious c%#t, Teresa Heinz Kerry, will not be first lady.

When Ohio was projected for Bush

When I read the next morning after class that Kerry was going to do the right thing and concede.

Juan,

I don't get what you mean. The reason I started this thread was to have a light-hearted look on the election year, post Nov. 2nd. After the constant mudslinging, Americans and non-Americans are worn out and I thought this would be a good way to let the dust settle.

This will be completely lost on some but...

Killer moment. David Dimbleby, the legendary heavyweight BBC news anchor, did their overnight coverage. At one stage he was interviewing a French potician and brought up "cheese eating surrender monkeys".

Her face was a picture.

Mike McCurry going on NBC to say that Karen Hughes must be living in some alternative parallel universe if she thought that Florida was going for Bush - three minutes later, NBC called Florida for W. I wish they still had a camera on him.

Anti-Bush pundits on Spanish state television, when they realized Bush had actually won the election. One of them in particular was so mad you could almost see smoke coming out of his ears.

Bob Worcester of MORI was good fun too, watching him wriggle when he realised just how catastrophically wrong the MORI exit polling was.

For someone who is generally right on the money he'd got it way off, and ITN's presenters did not seem at all amused with him.
