ANDREW KLAVAN: It’s All Over. Not. “Since Tuesday, I have heard enough conservatives saying, ‘It’s over! We’re through!’ in serious, important-sounding voices to last me the next four years. I don’t care how important you make it sound, it’s whining; any child can do it. I’ll let you know when it’s over by putting you in the ground and throwing six feet of dirt onto your face. Until you get that secret signal, really, pull yourself together.”
See, libertarians are less despondent because (1) conservatives start out gloomier; and (2) we’re much more used to disappointment. Also, we’ve seen real progress in many areas over the last couple of decades.
UPDATE: Looking at this again, I’m reminded of a line from Firefly: “May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.” I aim to misbehave.
