When you're right you're right

It turns out James Carville, major democratic strategiest, exhibited prescience 12 days before the election. At a party he said,

“If we can’t win this damn election,” the advisor to the Kerry campaign said, “with a Democratic Party more unified than ever before, with us having raised as much money as the Republicans, with 55% of the country believing we’re heading in the wrong direction, with our candidate having won all three debates, and with our side being more passionate about the outcome than theirs — if we can’t win this one, then we can’t win s**t! And we need to completely rethink the Democratic Party.”

Well, he was proven right. Much as I'd love for the Democrats to wander in the wilderness for 40 years, I don't truct the Republicans enough to let them do that.

What I'm seeing from the Democrats is not productive. What I'm seeing is this feeding frenzy on "The Election was Stolen" mantra. Perhaps they just need to heal and then they can think rationally. But so far, they appear to have gone off their rocker.
