HBO Tonight: Right America: Feeling Wronged

I remember how I felt when Bush won, particularly in 2004 when I thought it was clear how bad a president he was and he still (kinda) won. Apparently there are those on the right who feel that way about Obama's (decisive) victory. Tonight on HBO (8pm ET) is a documentary Right America: Feeling Wronged - Some Voices from the Campaign Trail.

"On the day Barack Obama was elected the 44th President, more than 58 million voters cast their ballots for John McCain. In the months leading up to this historic election, filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi (HBO's Emmy®-winning "Journeys with George") took a road trip to meet some of the conservative Americans who waited in line for hours to support the GOP ticket, and saw their hopes and dreams evaporate in the wake of that Democratic victory. These voters share their feelings about the changing America in which they live."

The hell of it is that history shows that it's likely most of those 58 million voters will do better under a Democratic administration than they would have under a Republican one... but then what weight do facts carry where politics is concerned?
