At least one Blogger from the Unofficial Kerry and Light Up The Darkness Blogs, is vacationing at the happiest place on Earth, as I write this. No special plans for this loyal Kerry supporter... it will be just another day here in sunny SoCal (also known as Baja Canada).
Here's a quip from a story I found in the Boston Globe about some former Kerry staffers who are headed for a Denial Cruise:
It started as a joke among John Kerry's young loyalists as the election night results rolled in.
But now, with a second Bush term about to become reality, they're getting out of here. Out of town, out of the country, out to sea.
On Monday, 34 young, once-hopeful Kerry for President operatives will board an 855-foot cruise ship bound for the white sandy beaches of Cozumel, Mexico. They are calling it the Denial Cruise.
They are unwilling to watch as President Bush is sworn into office for his second term on Thursday. No television watching allowed, at least not of that event.
"I've been trying to make believe that this whole thing never happened," said Naomi Greenfield, who volunteered at last summer's Democratic National Convention and worked on Kerry's election night event in Copley Square.
It was the first political campaign for the 26-year-old Somerville resident, and defeat has not been easy.
"It's actually kind of wretched, but I feel like leaving the country is kind of a small way to protest," Greenfield said. "And I get to snorkel."
While other Kerry supporters are holding demonstrations across the country, Greenfield and her fellow travelers are settling on a more mellow resistance: to ignore the inauguration.
Peg Cusack, who runs a Northern Virginia-based event-planning firm that helped coordinate Kerry's election night affair, took the lead in organizing the four-day getaway that will bring the group through the western Caribbean to Cozumel, Mexico's largest island, nestled off the coast of the Yucutan Peninsula.
