Massachusetts Republicans

My days of staying up into the wee hours watching election results come in being well behind me, I am currently preparing myself to wake in the morning and find out that a Republican will be replacing Deval Patrick as the governor here in the People's Republic of Taxachusetts.

As such, I am taking to heart these words from Jordan Lebeau, writing at

Hey there, America. By this time tomorrow, it is very likely that you will have elected enough Republicans to tip the balance of the Senate. Those of you who played a role in this development must be overjoyed, as the days of obstructing change with but a single majority are gone in favor of obstructing change with a dual majority. As you spend the next few months celebrating this rejection of everything that you undoubtedly have come to see as liberalism, please remember this: In Massachusetts, our Republicans have always been better than yours.

Mostly because they’re not nutcases.

God, I hope so, or else this is going to be a long four years.
