The Many Stages of Election Grief – Documented for Everyone to See

So it’s one thing to cry.  It’s another to cry for the whole world to see.

When I got home to Tennessee, people began saying to me, “Hey, I saw you on NBC.”  Or, “I saw your photo.  Wow.  It looked like you were really upset.”

And, it’s true.  Apparently, my photo was picked up by some wire services and has appeared literally all over the world.  Now I’m even getting sympathetic e-mails and Tweets from liberals who’ve seen so many photos of me crying that they feel sorry for me.  I keep thinking I’ve seen them all, then someone sends me they’ve found!  So, let’s get these out of the way.

Hope

Anxiety

Disbelief
