That is a really good way to express how I feel about Tuesday's election results.  Notice that embedded in the boisterously joyful word is, fragil(e).

It's going to take more than a lot of local victories and a couple of governorships to undo Pumpkinism.  I don't think the effort was put forth by our enemies to disrupt this election at quite the same level as it was in 2016, or will be in 2018.

Because I was afraid to speak When I was just a lad Me father gave me nose a tweak And told me I was bad But then one day I learned a word That saved me aching nose The biggest word you ever heard And this is how it goes

It'd be nice if there were a magic word to stop the abuse we're undergoing.
