The Republicans really need to do some serious soul searching after this election.

I firmly believe that this is the beginning of a 'new' Republican Party or, preferably, a splinter that would involve a legitimate third party introduced. The difference in the election came down to this much - the Democrats can get all sides of the left to vote in unison as much for their guy as they can against the other guy...meanwhile the Republicans are beating each other up and sliding into extremist corners that not only doesn't win Independent voters over, it alienates people who typically vote Republican. There's just too much of a difference between Libertarians and the Religious Right to fall under an umbrella of a single party.

I'm happy. I'm happier that they lost more than we won, mind you. As long as Congress is run by extremist dolts who refuse to acknowledge that the person on the other side of the aisle is an actual human being nothing is going to be accomplished.

“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
