One chuckle amid the tears and gloom

In introducing Sec. Clinton for what is being called the "classiest" concession speech in history, VP nominee Sen. Tim Kaine quoted William Faulkner:

They killed us but they ain’t whupped us yet.”

Or actually in Faulkner's more accurate rendition of the language as his characters spoke it:
"They mought of kilt us but they ain't whupped us yet."
