Elections are rough. But they end. We don't have to like the result, but everybody has to live with them . . . for a while. The trick is to be able to accept it and move on. You'll have to do it eventually, and the sooner you realize the other guys won and start planning for the next one, the better off you will be.
Being able to get over it depends a lot on your past experiences with politics. As a dyed-in-the-wool Conservative, there was no more difficult night for me than Election Day 1992.

If it’s worth reading, post the whole thing. You own the copyright, don’t you? Post it and I’ll come back and skim it.
We got’em right where we want ‘em.
Sounds similar to the last radio transmission from Wake Island.
Good read. My 20 something niece called me and said she wanted to “curl up in a fetal position.” I told her, chin up, we (as a country) have been through this before, in 1992. She wasn’t aware Clinton had Dem majorities in the Senate and the House, and I had to give her a little history lesson about what happened in 1994.
By the way, we can expect to see her pop up again under Obama. She'll pass the Congressional hearing process this time, too. Here's the Wikipedia entry on her.
I would compere this to the Carter era as much as Clinton. An overtly left wing takeover. In this case, a reaction to Bush, back then it was Nixon. The people will move back in our direction soon.
Or General Creighton Abrams in the battle of the Bulge "They've got us surrounded again. The poor bastards."
Today we should all start anew and come to terms with reality.
A football analogy comes to mind of being a free safety after the other team gets the ball back.
There is a fatal flaw in your logic. Clinton had no guiding principles and was driven by polls and his need to be popular. 0bama is an extreme ideologue with a clear cut leftist agenda. He only cares about cramming his agenda down our throats regardless of the consequences. This makes 0bama a very dangerous man and by the time the sheeple in America figure it out it will be too late.
I go back much further. Within 2 years of Lyndon Johnson’s huge landslide victory over the great conservative hero of the time, Barry Goldwater, and the democrats huge gains in Congress, the democrats lost 48 seats in the the House and Johnson was curled up in a fetal position because he had lost the support of the American people and could hardly venture out publicly. Nixon, another pretend conservative republican, who received the overwhelming support of the conservatives was elected pretty overwhelmingly 4 years later. So proving that the democrats have this overwhelming tendency to move the country much further to the left that the country wants to go.
Great article, starting to wake me up from the funk this morning.
My 15 yr old granddaughter was almost in tears, she wouldn’t talk accept to ask a few “what ifs” and she didn’t like those answers either.
My 12 yr old granddaughter (her mother voted for 0) sent me a text telling me how stressed she was. My advice to both of them was to chill, we aren’t in control and we did what we could do.
Now we go forward, the world hasn’t ended.
I; for one, welcome our new socialist overlord. Where do I get in line for my government check?
I am sick of it all. You speak as if this is a game and I guess to most of you it is. We win here, we lose here. Well, I'm tired of it. Tell me - who is the next Reagan? Maybe it's Sarah Palin but rest assured the media will take the next four years to destroy her. Will it be Bobby Jindal? Maybe Haley Barbour?
Oh - you forgot to mention why Newt won. He realized that CSPAN was filming the House and used that to his advantage while the Dems ignored it. Not anymore. They have infiltrated CSPAN and will work next on talk radio and then the internet.
Sorry to sound so down but I don't feel like playing the game anymore. I don't like talking to other Repubs about events and be met with blank faces.
