I was just thinking of people who voted for Duh and qualities about those folks who led them to do such a thing. In my mind the groups must be divided by descending numbers into the following: stupid, ignorant, misdirected, presbyopic (elderly in Florida), myopic (well, I guess that actually describes all who weren't presbyopic and kind of fits in there with ignorance), and greedy (or any combination of the above). Defense mechanisms are interesting. Rationalization will be the big one for anyone still saying they'd vote for him again (for any of those who don't fall into the stupid or ignorant categories). I wish I had all the emails I sent to family and friends in 2000 telling them the potential for all that has already transpired if Bush was (s)elected (many of my worst nightmares). I'd be tempted to say, "I told you so," but that doesn't help matters.
George W. Bush...I didn't vote for you when I lived in Texas in either gubernatorial race (still can't believe you beat Ann Richards) or for your run for White House Resident in the 2000 Selection after we left Austin (where I was employed by a TX state agency for from '96 to '00 and didn't like your impact on policy there) and came to California (where I thought maybe I would be done with hearing from you). I didn't vote for your daddy either (although I saw him once at Molina's in Houston and he was rather personable to my friends & me; much more personable than your momma). I never even voted for any of your daddy's bosses.
As for the folks who voted for Nader...I believe most were well-intentioned. If I lived in a state where there was an obvious sweep for one of the others, I may have voted for him myself. But I blame some of what will happen during Duh's term on him. Nader should have taken his name out of the running in states where numbers were close. I also blame the folks in those states who didn't have enough snap or didn't care and voted for Nader anyway. Nader's crusade continues as he goes into states to support Green Party candidates who will prevent an incumbent Democrat from regaining a seat. If Nader succeeds, Duh, et al will own your ass.
