Chiming in -- for fun and the sake of provocation, I've been calling the Bush s/election a "legal" coup, which works for me. A friend invoked an oxymoronic phrase from childhood -- "He stole the election fair and square." One goal for the left would be to deny Bush, as best and as long as one can, a sense of the legitimacy of his rule -- message: You didn't win sh*t and you're not OUR president -- while continuing to question the legitimacy and functionality of American "democracy," which seems to grow weaker every day. And take heart, left coasters -- there are inauguration day protests planned for DC that should get people from at least all over the east coast; no sense of how big, but we'll be there.
