The election is over, for the most part.

Elections always seem to end up a combination of joy and frustration. There is joy when “your” candidate or party wins big. There is frustration when they don’t and you can’t figure out how the people could be so stupid.

I’m not going to write a big, long post on what happened yesterday; the news media is going nuts doing that themselves. I’ll just say that this election, which saw great gains for Republicans/Conservatives, both nationally and in the state, gives me real hope. It also causes me lots of frustration for local Republicans who couldn’t overcome local Democrats who somehow managed to hold onto their offices.

So today, we must move on from here.

It is what it is.
