After Wisconsin

To my Left-of-Center friends: I know it hurts. I know it feels like democracy is at an end. Those of us on the Right have been there, more than once. You should have seen us the night Obamacare passed.

Do whatever it takes to deal. Call us uneducated tools of the Koch brothers. Threaten to move to Europe. Post pictures on Facebook comparing Scott Walker to the human derriere.

And then, in a few days, let’s get back to debating the effects of tax policy on an economy.

As for my friends on the Right, yes, it was a hoot watching Rachel Maddow last night. But I have three words for you. From Winston Churchill: “In Victory: Magnanimity.”
