A grown up relationship doesn’t mean holding grudges. In the old days Republicans and Democrats could fight hammer and tong but put their harsh rhetoric aside after an election. Now they believe their rhetoric and treat it as though it was handed down to them from Mt. Sinai.

I know you mean that. Withering sarcasm aside I like you guys.
