Originally I was planning to follow up LT Ronald’s post on the election with one offering up my thoughts on how it turned out.
I was going to exaggerate the issues to make the other side look foolish. Blindly repeat sound bites no matter how ludicrous or discredited. Question both the intelligence and loyalty of any folks who dared to display a different set of political beliefs than me.
You know, all the stuff that passes for civilized political discourse in our country nowadays.
But instead I’ll post this video, that I ironically became aware of when one of my readers made a comment that annoyed me, and I went to look at his site. (Thanks to Phelps for the video.)
So you know what? It’s time to put the paddle down, no matter how naughty you think the dead horse has been. If you are happy with the outcome of the election, be magnanimous in your victory. Remember how it felt the last time your side lost, and try not to rub it in the other guy’s face. If you are unhappy with the outcome, rest assured that our country can survive the next four years; try to graciously accept that this time the majority disagreed with you this time around.
Also I’m very disappointed that more of you didn’t vote for me as a write in candidate.
