sorry my reference to the Republicans distracted you. when I wrote it, I thought it so obvious that Republican's winning is just a humorous placeholder for "whatever outcome one wants to avoid" that it would not be distracting.

Humor is hard when expressing myself in text. I think I will just give up on it altogether.

You had to be a Democrat.
