….First rule: No gloating. Actually, there is gloating aloud, but only in the exclusive presence of other Democrats. Gloating in the face of Republicans is rude and unsportsmanlike, and just gives them one more thing to complain about….

To hell with that. Times have changed. I’m doing a schadenfreude dance for the next four years.
