On our 100th show, Arianna and Mary debate the post-election Republican re-set and whether new GOP members should be required to watch not Patton but Lincoln. Then we discuss how Romney's sour gripes exposed himself as Mr. 1 percent + 47 percent which oddly equals exactly his final total of 48 percent.
Political junkies among us can allow ourselves a brief moment to gloat at the court jesters whose contempt for our collective intelligence as the presidential campaign came to an end last night and who broke new ground in the realm of Chutzpah even as the votes were being counted.

Some fashionistas dream about Mercedes Benz Fashion Week - I dream about the Republican and Democratic National Conventions. Who will wear what? Will my "bundle" method of packing suitcases with shirt, tie and accessory combos make it safely to baggage claim? Will the political elite log in to check their online style albums? Many of my clients are moving from C-SPAN to Primetime for the next two weeks and the stakes are higher.
We'll be marching on the headquarters of Karl Rove's Crossroads GPS organization in Washington, D.C., to protest the corrupting, debasing and anti-democratic influence of money in politics. I'll be there, and you should be too. Why?
