Dear Gene Robinson.
They're mad because they lost. That's it. You can't cheerlead on massive government spending under George W. Bush and Republicans for eight years and then be suddenly enraged about it when you get chucked out of power unless you are totally full of shit.
They're made because they lost. Losing sucks. I know, because I was on the losing side for years. As Jon Stewart said, "It's supposed to taste like a shit taco."
These are not huddled masses yearning to breathe free. They're sullen peasants yearning for new dogs to kick. Stop vesting the mean little dunce, her lobbyist backers, and spell-check-challenged moron brigade with legitimacy borne out of anything more interesting than sore loserdom.
