If what everyone thinks may happen happens tonight, I am so optimistic about our great nation, the United States of America, as Sarah Palin might put it. We are about to have a tough few years — and I’m nervous about a lot of issues, where we’ll be in the hands of one-party domination in Washington, a party that has positioned itself radically wrong on some key issues (like life and not supporting our troops’ commander in Iraq). But this is an opportunity, too, an opportunity for our movement, the conservative movement, to reaccess, to return to its roots, to study and renew. And to whip the Republican party into shape. It’s going to be tough. But the Right is up for it.
I’m so sorry we’re here. But we appear to be. So we’ll buck up, build up, and fight on.
