It has kind of taken me by surprise how sad I feel about the results of the presidential election just concluded.Â I mean, given John McCaIn’s great difficulty in articulating a coherent message on the chief issue in this campaign, the economy, his loss was to be expected.
Yet, media bias also contributed to his defeat, well at least to the margin of that loss.
So, maybe I should take a page from the gay activists storming the Mormon church and head downtown to protest the LA Times (much closer than the headquarters of its more biased counterpart in the Big Apple).
Dejected as we are by our loss, however, at least we conservatives accept the results of the election.Â We’ll lick our wounds, congratulate the winners, critique our past strategy, take a break from politics, then start rebuilding for the future.
I suggest gay activists take a page from us.Â The angry anti-Mormon rhetoric of the past two days does little to advance the cause they claim to support.Â Indeed, it only serves to set them back.
On the whole, conservatives are handling Obama’s victory with grace as we should.Â I suggest gay activists take a page from us and not their left-wing fellow travelers who had a different reaction to Bush’s reelection four years ago.
