Allen West: Our Long Nightmare Ends

Finally,” indeed. Allen West has finally seen the wisdom of concession. I’m sick to death of rightists who very simply have refused to accept the fact of defeat. There’s something we all learn about folks who react that way. They’re sore losers.

I have had that reaction myself. I understand it. Therefore, I don’t want to make fun of that response to an unimagined outcome. It hurts, of course. The future seems that much more uncertain, especially after so much hope and effort. I have nothing to say about all those folks on the Right who worked, who sacrificed, and believed so hard, nothing but love and the hope that they will be able to keep participating. I mean the Tea-Party people as much as anyone; maybe now they’ll recognize their opinions aren’t in fact shared by the rest of the nation.

West actually lost in the recount by more than in the original total. That exceeds irony.
