The World Didn't End

Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard:

Whenever we're bathing in the afterglow of an election -- or the sorrow of an election -- I feel that you're kind of susceptible to extreme emotions. In 2004 when George Bush was re-elected, I was convinced the world was going to end in the next four years. I really did. I was terrified of what was going to happen in this country over the next four years. And every day -- after the next day, after the next day -- the sun came up and the world didn't end.
