Funny, I feel better now

On November 9, 2006, in General, by Neil Stevens

Those who were on the Red State AIM chat on election night may recall me saying that our electoral defeat didn’t feel real yet, and despite my frantic insistence that the Democrats, led by the CBC, were going to lose the war and draft articles of impeachment on the President, that I’d have to wait for the next day to see how I felt.

Well, a funny thing happened the next day, didn’t it? Secretary Rumsfeld got the boot, and suddenly all my sadness over our losing the war was replaced by anger at the President for giving up on the war.

But now, today, after spending yesterday angry at the President, I feel rather calm about everything. No nerves about the coming election, no anxiety over the next wartime supplemental budget votes, no rage over Rumsfeld.

So I’ll say this: as far as my feelings go, the bandage-tearing analogy of yesterday was pretty accurate. I still don’t think it’s the best policy, but I will admit it’s easier on me emotionally. For now, anyway.
