Maybe It’s Best That Liberals Will Have a Good Election


Maybe it will bring some happiness to their otherwise sad, pathetic lives.

Okay, more seriously: Democratic spinner Chris Lehane offers an unpersuasive explanation for the greater happiness of conservatives. “The typical Republican is happy coming home to a 62-inch television, pulling out a fine bottle of cognac or Scotch, putting his feet on the table and enjoying the fruits of his labor, but not caring what’s going on in the world outside their living room . . . and their gated community.” But if that’s the case, why do conservatives give more to charity?

Update: An email:

If I tried putting my feet up on the table, my wife would find use for that gun she’s bitterly clinging to.
