Why the long faces? (Sorry John Kerry, know you can’t help it).
We just lost ONE election. It happens. We still have a HUGE majority. In fact, we have more of a majority than George Bush ever had. And what did he do while in office? Whatever the heck he wanted! So come on! Stop being such pansies already!
We still have the momentum, the lead, the majority, the ideas, the support. We can still pass health care, still close Gitmo, still pass environmental legislation and protection, and – hello!- maybe allow gays to marry one another like any decent society should.
So we lost one election. Sure, symbolically it was a big one, Ted Kennedy’s empty senate seat and all. But if it really was so important, maybe we should have chosen a better candidate, and not someone who openly admitted she hated campaigning. Not someone in BOSTON who described Red Sox legend Curt Schilling as “another Yankee fan.” You know?
Anyhow, we messed that one up. But it’s over now, and let’s not beat ourselves up about it. Let’s not spend ONE SECOND MORE listening to what the douchebags at FOX have to say about it. It’s time to put this in PERSPECTIVE. It’s time to get to WORK. It’s time to NUT UP OR SHUT UP (Thanks Zombieland!).
Got it? Good! Now get out there and kick some GOP ass.
