We win! Time for a nap.
I belong to an invitation-only political Facebook page, where there are about 15 people, from both sides of the political aisle and where, leading up to the most recent election, we all posted frequently, sometimes arguing fairly vigorously our point of view on any given topic that someone would bring up.
Since the election ended, I have found myself less interested in combating the vitriol from the right, for the simple reason that We won. The country has moved center-left and by proxy, my points have been validated, I have been vindicated and there is not much reason to argue with folks whose opinions have been either discredited entirely or who are in the small minority.
Either that or like just after sex, where the guy is totally spent and wants to just take a long nap until he's revved up again...which should come, so to speak, just as we're ready to start a new election cycle this fall.
