    as a paragon of mainstream, normal, common-sense, and above all thought of itself as the majority.

    First off, anyone who thinks of himself or herself as "normal", is someone who deserves to be knocked down a peg or two, just on general principle. If there's one thing I have learned in my 50 years on this planet, it's that there are no normal people.

    Secondly, the fact is if Romney had managed somehow to win the election, these are the same people who would be preparing to march over the corpses of the opposition, triumphantly, and there would be no reflection about "empathy" anywhere... it's hard for me to cry genuine tears about their loss.

    That being said, it's not in Democrats' natures to rub peoples' noses in their defeats, especially not Republicans, because they thrive on the perception that they are always being ridiculed, ever since the 1960s, and earlier.

    Let's not give them more grist for their mills.
