(…so I’ll just reproduce my post from my personal site here.)
Can’t say that I didn’t try my best; I think that the wrong person won; and I think that the end result is going to be worse for the country. And, oh, yeah, fine: the state polls weren’t smoking crack after all.
I’m not going to make any excuses or accusations; everybody I know involved in this tried their guts out, including the people who are about to get vilified for running a campaign that didn’t quite manage to unseat an unpopular incumbent. And, honestly, I’m more worried about the folks who read me than I am about myself. I’ll be fine; this isn’t my first loss, and it won’t be my last one, either. And tomorrow I’ll wake up and never have to hear another stupid commercial about Yes/No on Question 6/7 ever again.
“There is a lot of ruin in a country.” And despair is a sin.
I repeat: despair is a sin. The worst of them.
