Scalzi has a nice little “reality check”:http://whatever.scalzi.com/2008/11/05/reality-check/ over on his site this morning:
bq. 1. It was Obama who won, not necessarily the Democrats. Which is why, while the Democrats gained in both the House and the Senate, they don’t appear to be having the blow-out additions to their numbers some folks seemed to think would happen (note that at least a couple of Senate races are still in play).
Regardless of your feelings toward Barack Obama, he _is_ going to be our next president, and as such we him our support. Now, folks, how about we put aside the petty, juvenile grievances, do away with the name-calling, and get on board with this to help our new president do the best job possible, eh?
