Cartoonist Mark Fiore depicts US politics in his political flash cartoons on http://www.markfiore.com. I like them a lot. Just one day before the election, when German TV showed Fahrenheit 9/11, I remembered the website and I wrote an email to Mark telling him not to stop his work. He replied he wouldn't, as he can make a living with it. So at least one thing to be happy about.
The ballots outcome overseas (in the US) has really, really shocked me.
I was also quite astonished to learn about Nader. For weeks I have been watching German news channels as well as BBC World and French TV 5, and I never heard anything about him, I didn't even know who he was.
