The left is apoplectic about last week's election.
Many are calling the 59 million who voted for President Bush "stupid."
People are fed up with the left-wing agenda of abortion on demand, same sex marriage and cultural decay.
A majority has had enough and they voted that way last Tuesday.
Now we're hearing about how the president must heal the divide in the country, as if the divide is his fault.
Actually, the country is not becoming more divided.
It is becoming more conservative and the left, which for 40 years has used the courts to ram things down our throats, is rightly worried.
It has lost and the evidence of that is the language being used by media types to describe people who voted for President Bush, not to mention the names they call him.
This election proves that hate isn't enough to win.
You must have a candidate with credibility, likability and common sense.
Read Newsweek magazine's behind-the-scenes story on the Kerry campaign and thank God we didn't elect this guy.
It proves we aren't stupid, after all.
