Did anyone think that a month after the election Democrats would still be campaigning, refusing to accept the election results and in state of depression?

Well, yes, but only because of long experience with the whiners.

//Ever solicitous, the Post's Style section would go on for days if not weeks with heartwarming tales of a congregation left scared and shaken, a planned "happy hour" at a wellness spa in Takoma Park that became a tear-sodden venture, and a man in rude health who stayed up till 5 when the last votes were in, called in sick to his office and spent the whole day in bed. Ah, Democrats, where the men are all weak, and the women odd-looking. But when have we heard this before? Perhaps the last time the Democrats lost an election they thought they were winning, and showed the same resilience and fortitude.

"Democrats Shellshocked by Bush Win Over Kerry," ran the piece in World News Daily on November 11, 2004. "The Florida-based American Health Association has released symptoms of what it calls 'post-election selection trauma' or PEST, which include: feelings of withdrawal ... isolation ... anger and bitterness, loss of appetite, sleeplessness ... moodiness [and] endless sulking,' though no mentions yet about hair. "Manhattan psychologist Bonnie Maslin said many of her patients cried about the lost election," Newsday reported days earlier.

"They talked about hopelessness ... the level of devastation is enormous. Patients are saying they feel that the things they cherish and value are under siege." Republicans felt the same things 2008 and 2012, but they went on ticking. Never change, Democrats, we need you, if just as examples of what not to do when things go against you: Grace under pressure, indeed.//
