    But I don't remember the campaign, or what it felt like to "win." I was a kid, and living in an apolitical home.

    I've only ever known GOP triumphalism and bullying. Screw them. We're going to smash them and scatter them.

    If we don't know how to deal with winning, how well do you think a Republican deals with losing?

      Me and my buds had run from a bar near GW campus where the Dems were partying to the White House.  Bunches of people were gathering and singing "Ta na na na hey hey hey good bye!" to Bush.

      When we went back to campus we decided to stop at the campus bar, the Ratskeller (aren't they always named that on campus?), where the College Republicans were set for their celebration.

      They were all sitting shell-shocked, staring at the returns coming in, waiting for someone to tell them that it was all a mistake.
