Election 2012: Liberal Schadenfreude Hits Impossible Heights As Results Pour In

I don't know, man. The first election I ever had strong feelings about was 2000, and we all know how that turned out. In so many ways, this election was a victory. A victory for Obama, a victory for the Democratic coalition, a victory for gay marriage, a victory for women, a victory over rape apologists, a victory over Karl Rove and Super PAC money, a victory for numbers over feelings.

There's a famous quote from MLK that I spend a lot of time thinking about: the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice." I don't think it necessarily arcs smoothly or that the arc is never interrupted, but I think I could see it bending last night.

Four more years, baby. Let's see what we can do with it.
