An Eye for an Eye ....

Democrats, who allege they've won the presidency, are asking Republicans to cooperate with them in a smooth transition. Exactly how short do they believe our memories can be?

They spent the last four years claiming the last election was stolen, and refusing to cooperate with Republicans. In what bizarre world would we treat them any differently?

The obvious corollary of the Golden Rule is to treat others as they have treated you. Return good for good and bad for bad. Democrats are owed a boatload of bad.

I seem to recall Hammurabi had something to say about this principle. Comments about sowing the wind and reaping the whirlwind also come to mind.

Assume the various lawsuits, recounts, etc. aimed at vote-counting irregularities do not pan out - the outcome you'd bet on if you had serious money at stake. Given that sad outcome, we should spend the next four years making life as miserable for the Democrats as the law allows. I'll do my part, please join me.
