SLATE says yes. SLATE thinks we should be magnanimous to the Republicans and sympathetic to the loss they brought upon themselves. That we should not gloat after years of psychological abuse and stalling of national progress because of them.
Well, fuck that, is what I say.
Seriously, it's not our job to suddenly be sympathetic to people who spent every minute of every day saying how much they hated us and looked forward to fucking up our lives, who called us either damned, traitors or parasites, and who deluded themselves they were winning when they were not. These are scum, these are villains, they are beneath contempt, and they richly earned each sneer that goes their way as they crawl back under the earth like the cold, spineless worms they are.
Because our gloating is not even a tenth as bad as what they said, straight out, they planned to do to all of us had they won. They should feel lucky as hell that we are not them. If they can't deal with a bit of gloating, who cares? Who cares how Republicans feel? They don't care how any of us feel. It's not us that hung empty chairs in our yards. Frankly, in my opinion these people deserve no part in governance or political discourse at all till they grow up and cease being an engine that runs solely on hate and fear. And they certainly have earned no respect. ___________________
