"A little bit of excitement in the air," says local Boston WBZ-TV anchorman David Wade as Tiny, our alarm clock of choice, alerts us with nosebiting and loud purring that it's time to rise and greet the day. There's catfood to be served!
Soon we'll be heading out to exercise our franchise, "term limits by other means."
Waiting for sunrise, a new day dawning for God's "almost chosen people."
Then sit back with a hot cup of schadenfreude — Don't get cocky! — and enjoy the show as our friends on the other side of the aisle desperately try to shape the narrative using Ira Stoll's nine ways "the left will spin the election." (h/t Instapundit). Our favorites:
#4: The voters are ignorant.
#5: And, related, it was a communications problem. "You can't be neglecting of marketing and P.R," is how President Obama put it in his interview with the New York Times, conveniently absolving his policies from any blame.
#9: It was Bush's fault.
Update: Talk about excitement, this just in from Boston Herald columnist Margery Eagan, who reports Sean Bielat incursions in Barney Frank territory:
For 25 years I’ve lived in Brookline, where Republicans admit they’re Republicans at their own risk. Yet I haven’t seen so many lawn signs for a Republican since a few courageous matrons put a “Weld for Governor” placard on their lawn in 1990 and paid the price: social suicide. They were promptly shunned at Whole Foods. Their poor children sat alone in the cafeteria.
