I’m not sure I would say that they are humbled. Smarting maybe and ticked off that we repudiated them but humbled, I doubt it!
I really liked this section from the article:
“So we are left with a liberal establishment that rode its hubris right out of town, a conservative establishment that rode back into town despite itself and a media establishment that was wrong about both directions. This is one story of our year in politics. And the moral matches the moral of our time. The political establishment often does not know best. Neither do the pundits that analyze it. And the smartest guy in the room might just be you.”
Read the whole thing.
I’ll think they are humbled when they start producing budgets with surpluses and a government that is shrinking and not growing exponentially as it has for the last few years.
