Kerry Concedes Race

I had in mind a glorious Photoshop just for this moment, and it involved the phrase "Like a Viking."

I also planned on gloating over the Republican gains in the House.

And the Republican gains in the Senate.

And the inevitable three gains on the Supreme Court.

But I don't feel like gloating at all. I feel relieved. I am very happy. But I won't rub anyone's face in it [exceptions: Tom Daschle and Michael Moore]. On the contrary. I congratulate John Kerry on having the honor to concede the race, rather than Gore-ing the country. He's earned himself some modicum of respect, in my eyes.
