I can't stop marveling at rMoney's monumental arrogance [View all]

Sure he existed in a bubble, but still his absolute conviction that he'd be President as evidenced by his transition web site, plans for fireworks, no concession speech and plans for re-election, is mind boggling.

I can only imagine that his enormous arrogance and ego stem from never having had any real setbacks in his 65 years. Forget the bullshit about Ann's health; she was never in a life threatening place. Forget his loss to Teddy- he did that as a trial run. Forget his 2004 run; he knew it wasn't his turn. The man had never been rejected in his life.

He couldn't even contemplate that he'd lose.

I'd bet almost anything that he isn't handling this gigantic hit to his ego well. He's been thoroughly humiliated. The place in history that he so desperately strove for is gone forever. He's nothing but a footnote and one about how to run a terrible campaign. I think he's also damaged the concept that a CEO makes a good candidate.

He got away with a lot in his campaign: The refusal to disclose tax returns, the massive flip flopping, the endless lies- the MSM let so much of it slide, but in the end he got a giant cosmic slap across his bland, smug face.

It really is something to savor.
