I’m not capable of putting my thoughts about yesterday into a coherent essay, so I’m just going to do a few posts with lists of sentences and paragraphs, loosely grouped.
Here’s where it starts:
1. We lost.
2. Winning is better.
3. It wasn’t such a blowout as to tell us we need a complete change of strategy, nor such a cliffhanger we need to spend the next four years regretting something minor we didn’t do. They got more votes than we did; now they get to run the country until it’s time to vote again.
