Watching FAUX News Fraudcasting's coverage of the election last night, and the utter disbelief in the faces of the wingnuts that Willard "Mittens" Romney had not won the landslide FAUX had been predicting and that Tea-Publicans were losing to Democrats in the Senate, it reminded me of the scene in The Grinch Who Stole Chiristmas, when the Grinch realized that he had not stopped Christmas from coming:
He stared down at Who-ville!The Grinch popped his eyes!Then he shook!What he saw was a shocking surprise.Every Who down in Who-ville, the tall and the small,Was singing! Without any presents at all!He HADN’T stopped Christmas from coming!
Somehow or other, it came just the same!
And the Grinch, with his grinch-feet ice-cold in the snow
Stood puzzling and puzzling: “How could it be so?”
“It came without ribbons! It came without tags!
It came without packages, boxes or bags!”
And he puzzled three hours, till his puzzler was sore…
(Dr. Suess, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, New York: Random House, 1957.)
I will have that wonderful image to enjoy forever!
