I think this tweet from Van Jones captures a lot of my feelings this morning:
The wails of wingnut rage sound like sweet music as they continue their war against reality. Yes, they are dangerous and they will continue to do great damage, but today I am filled with hope. Hope that these losers are on a fast track to the dustbin of history.
And yet–just like four years ago–I’m sure they are making new plots for a comeback. I wonder where Luntz, Newt, McConnell, Ryan and the gang will meet for dinner tonight to make their plans for another four years of epic fail. Their playbook is exhausted. Perhaps an enterprising reporter will follow Luntz around tonight to report on which failed tactics they’ll repeat this time around. Regardless of what they try this time around, the President and the rest of us will be ready for them.
It is a great day.
