The pitter-patter of rain beating down has been omnipresent for quite a while now within the party that calls itself the Republicans. For them, the rain has been unending. Every drop has hastened in more bad news for them as a party. And good news for us.

Senator Warnock won, giving us 51 Senate seats. That’s worth celebrating. But there is so much good news. And I wanted to write an article about it to try to calm – to soothe — the naysayers. The sun is out and shining down on the Democratic party.

Not so the GOP. For them, the rain has not stopped. It’s soaked them through and through. Let’s take a look back at some events that have happened in the last couple of years and experience the sunlight of the Democratic party together.

We won the Presidency. President Joe Biden is doing his job and doing it well. We won the senate. Fifty-one seats is a whole lot better than fifty. It means we can get more done. It means we have a solid majority. It means that the power of Manchin and Sinema is a little bit less.

We kept House losses at a minimum. We did this by investing in the small races as Bill Palmer said to do. We knew what our work was — and we did it — well. All over, we won Governors races. We flipped legislatures, in states such as Michigan and Minnesota.

And we won the Georgia special election. Against all odds — we won. And then there is Donald Trump. We have a Special Counsel. Jack Smith will hold Trump accountable. The January 6 committee did its work and did it stunningly well.

Trump is under multiple criminal investigations. Alvin Bragg, who many had given up on, has shown he never gave up at all. The Georgia investigation, too, is active. And then there is our rival party.

For the GOP, the rain will continue to fall, surrounding them soaking them until the party can actually come up with a cohesive message for the American people. As of right now, that has yet to happen. Will it ever? I am not so certain that it will.

It will require strength of character and self-analysis, two things which they lack abundantly. So as the water falls on the soul of the GOP, let’s take comfort in knowing we’re winning because we have a message that leaves no room for rain.
