Last night: "We've barely won some elections and weren't able to take back the Senate. We understand this isn't a mandate. Exit polling told us that while the American people have returned us to power, they have a low opinion of both parties, and they voted for us because they were voting against the other guy. We'll work hard to change their opinion of us. We feel humbled that we have a second chance to prove we can govern."
This morning: "We're humbled the American people have given us a second chance."
Noon: "The American people have given our ideals a second chance and repudiated Obama's agenda."
Late afternoon: "The American people have spoken and told us that lower taxes and smaller government should be given a second chance."
Dinner time: "We have a mandate from the American people!"
Clap harder guys. Tinker Bell is still on the ground.
