That was an honorable concession post. However, I don't think you have to apologize about assuming Romney would win, but rather your hubris is
thinking you knew this, particularly given the electoral polling analysis of the likes of Nate Silver at fivethirtyeight.com. Some may consider this
a quibble over semantics, but I think otherwise; it's a matter of looking at facts and reality -- and by that I mean in this case the most perceptive
polling analysis around.
I hope that you do learn an important lesson from this experience, but that lesson is not just not making big claims you can't back up. Rather, open
your eyes to facts and look outside your usual information well for information and facts that might not comport with your ideologically based world
I mean this in a respectful manner, in the spirit with which you created this thread.
That said, your apology avatar really isn't a terribly punitive one. WEAK. I had an image in mind to submit for your disapproval, but because of
your classy post, I will resist the temptation to wax snarky by posting it here.
