Worst-Case Scenario

I was born in January 1968. I’ve lived through two Nixon victories, two Reagan victories, and two George W. Bush victories, albeit at a remove.

This is the worst US federal election outcome of my lifetime. The worst in the English-speaking world, probably, considering that only one other of those countries has nukes. At least Thatcher was passingly sane.

Racism and misogyny won. Now we have four more years of hearing that man speak, and all his deplorable surrogates, when I was so hoping never to hear from them again after today.

There isn’t much more to say right now. Maybe another time.
