Our own good Mr. McCain has been posting some interesting things about young conservatives hoping for a loss. My message to them is the same, I think, as Stacy’s: Grow the bleep up. Anybody who thinks a loss is EVER better than a win is nuts, when it is the nation’s future we are talking about. Too much damage can be done in four years for it to be safe to hope for some sort of “cleansing” experience from being forced to the outside. Now it is a good thing to turn a defeat into something positive by regrouping and rethinking and re-working, but that does NOT mean, not at all, that the loss itself is a good thing, but only that one must always try to make the best of a bad situation by trying to improve rather than sulking in defeat. But it would be better to be trying to improve while still in some position of authority than it would be to improve while in no position of authority, especially when the opposition/Left is SO much worse, so much less responsible, than it was in years past.
