Ummm…yay. I guess.

Ach. God. What did I drink last night? My mouth feels like I’ve been chewing pine martens.

So! Biggest Republican wave in 80 years! Why am I not happy?

Maybe because I was expecting the biggest Republican wave, like, EVARRR. I’m highly susceptible to last-minute hype.

Maybe because a I CAN NOT Be-LEEEVE Massachusetts didn’t take the opportunity to rid itself of that spiteful, edentulous old queen Barney Frank. Or that I’ll spend another umpty-ump years staring at Harry Reid’s gray puss.

Mostly, though, it’s because I’ve been banging around the ‘sphere today and I’m shocked by the amount of acrimony on ‘our’ side about the ones that got away.

I’ve been chewing it over, and I don’t think I’m wise enough to get into it without, at best, adding to the general bitterness.

Except…just…we have a long, long way to go yet. That thing last night? That was a good beginning.

We have to maintain our giant stitched-together alliance at least through one more cycle. We can’t afford the luxury of poking each other in the eye. Which means putting up with some less than universally popular choices.

Just, please — I’m begging you — no Huckabee. Okay?

Now, somebody get me some hair-of-the-dog, stat.
