Conservative stages of grief… November 10, 2008

From Elisabeth Kübler-Ross:  Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance.

Frankly, I am surprised at how fast the denial stage has passed.  It is almost as if the Republicans had passed that several weeks before the election.

Anger…well, there is still plenty of anger around.  Just look at the attacks by some McCain operatives against Sarah Palin.  But again, remarkably, there isn’t all that much anger either.  Compared to that anger and bitterness that existed after Bill Clinton won in 1992, today’s anger is almost non-existant.

I think we are largely at the bargaining stage.  Many are already talking about how Gingrich was able to come back 2 years after the Clinton victory with the Republican revolution.  People are comparing the losses this year to Carter in 1976, Reagan in 1980, and Clinton in 1992.  Talk about Bargaining.

So all is left is depression and acceptance.  Depression is soon to come…just wait if John Kerry is named Secretary of State.  Acceptance?  I think the start of that is today, with Obama meeting with Bush at the White House, and will culminate on January 20, 2009.

Only then can the next voyage of conservatism truly begin.
