Is the realization that real change has to be about 10,000 times better than the status quo in order to squeak out even a barely-win just too much for people? Is it just too hard?
Our opponents are great at using our own values as weapons against us. They have a huge advantage because we will not do many of the things that they consider normal behavior (killing, sabotaging, cheating, bullying, whatever-it-takes-to-win)... and we beat them all over the place last night.
We got a few steps closer to totally marginalizing the GOP. Now we need to hold onto our gains... and get rid of Issa (shameless plug for my district because we will need all the help we can get).
