This election season was amazing in so many ways. Democrats outstripped Republicans in every conceivable metric: enthusiasm, volunteers, newly registered voters, money raised, new donors, seats won... and of course the crown jewel... the presidency.
Not only that, but the GOP is losing its favorite WMD, Word of Mass Destruction: LIBERAL

And lets not forget weasels like Palin, Bachman, and Leiberman running from their own attacks on Obama:
That whole anti-American, friend-to-the-terrorists thing about President-elect Barack Obama? Never mind.
We did not just win. We fucking kicked ass. But it is not just as simple as winning elections.
