I hate to be a sore loser

Ain't Democracy Grand?
Nobody likes a sore loser, but that won't stop me. When the disappointment passes, the path ahead will remain clear, the objective unchanged: to live free in an unfree world.
More loser self-analysis:
David Kahane: We got this the old-fashioned way: we earned it. The other side took the fight to us, and we never took the fight to the other side, except coyly and obliquely. That's not a mistake we should make the next time. "Honorable campaigns" are for losers. Next time, call 'em as they really are, not as you wish to see 'em.
Mark Steyn: We need to rediscover a coherent conservatism and find someone who can pitch it to sufficient numbers of people. We didn't have either in this campaign.
Henry Luis Gomez: Hopefully our party has gotten the bipartisan bug out of its system and will begin to think about WINNING rather than compromising for a change. [Sometimes you have to step in shit to know that it is shit.]
At least America won't have to put up with being called a racist nation anymore.
Addendum: A frequent commenter from a third-world country developing nation Canada suggests that I lay some blame for John McCain's defeat yesterday. Always eager to please regular Plains Feeder readers, I hereby blame the Republican Party leadership. They wanted to re-brand the party to attract the less conservative voter. Their effort to water down Republican values went over like New Coke. Fewer Republicans voted for McCain this year than voted for George Bush in 2004. Six million less, according to this report from the Gateway Pundit. Patterico's blog numbers the disaffected GOP voters at seven million.

GOP voters wanted a leader, not a maverick.
