If you were French during WW2, I suppose you'd have just accepted Vichy too.

Not at all. What I do accept is this: In 2004, we get the opportunity to get rid of him through legal elections. France in WWII didn't have that opportunity. (until we liberated their butts, that is)

While you and I probably have similar views on who the actual winner was supposed to be, there's nothing we can do about it. According to the laws of the land, he was declared the winner and took office. However, according to the laws of the land, we can try to ensure that something like that doesn't happen again (say by supporting Jeb Bush's opponents in the upcoming election in Florida, and by supporting election reform in our states).

Besides, now I get to make jokes about the mis-steps made by the guy in office.
