Feeling Better After Reading Dr. Hunter T.
Here's how Hunter Thompson spent election night and took the news. He casts some blame on evangelicals and the youth who didn't come out in the numbers we needed--but has nothing but praise for John Kerry, whom he got to know while serving as his unofficial tour guide this summer in Aspen. Through the disappointment, he finds something to be postive about for the future:
"Their army is how much bigger than mine? Three percent? Well shucks, Bubba. Now is the time to establish a network and an attitude," he said. "You make friends in moments of defeat. People in defeat tend to bond because they need each other. We can't take the attitude that it's over and we give up. We're still here."
Thompson added: "I'm proud to have known John Kerry."
