Everyone has his own idea of what this election meant. Here's my take:
The Tea Party is the best thing to happen to the Democrats, and the worst thing to happen to the country. It's made it impossible for any Republican to win on the national stage, and impossible for anyone to govern effectively.
I'm amazed that Libertarians seem to favor Republicans over Democrats.
If you're against abortion, don't have one.
If you're against gay marriage, don't marry someone of the same sex.
If you're against pot, don't smoke it.
But don't tell everyone else how to live their lives.
That's what the Taliban does, and we're better than that.
