"NO CHAD LEFT BEHIND" - Nostalgic for the past - Fearful for the future!

If only we could go back in time to past elections! 

I don't know about you - but I'm wistful for any Chad...hanging, swinging, dimpled or Pregnant!

No, there was no need to count Chads this time; but we surely could've counted a few Deplorables!

Silly me - back in the day; when Al Gore got 537 votes less than Bush - I was certain George W's brother, Jeb in Florida did the dirty deed & made it happen.

How things have changed for me - in this 2016 Election; I would've taken Jeb over Trump any day.  And if Jeb's as weak & tired as Trump says he is; I'd even share my Iron with him!

To those reading this who were born after 2000 - what you have just witnessed was an aberration. 

Compared to some of us who've seen an election or 10 - I'm here to tell you, soon you'll be seeing things askew & screwed but sadly; will consider it the norm.

I don't know which is worse - that our past years were "Election Lite" or this one: watching Trump hand out the Kool Aid?  

Would you prefer Snake Oil Salesman?

How long will it take for his Voters to figure out they were snookered? Well, I can wait - but only 4 years! 

Yeah, I'm so mad; I have another article ready!  ha ha

Young & old - we've been blissfully innocent of the perils of Facebook & social media where Truth & Integrity are but a distant virtue & like & unlike, friend & unfriend, funny meme & cruel meme are just a key stroke away.  

But, we have to like each other because President Trump will eventually find fault with each & every one of us - it's the paranoid disorder of narcissism talking that won't let him forgive & forget.

And, if you've got one eye open this week - Trump's been choosing a ragtag cabinet of advisors filled with previous foes to fight on his behalf - well, this can only spell new Reality Show!

My guess is - with such high drama & low brow comedy; only Gary Busey & Omarosa could star & do it justice. 

Don't worry if you don't know who Omarosa is; neither does Trump - she just holds his cape & scepter!

The shake-up of the "Supremes" is next & can only hope & pray Trump isn't a "3 Stooges" fan!

Oh, more please.  We need to laugh.  The sad truth of a whole RED Congress and a wild Red President is just setting in.  The Supreme Court is going to go RED and the redistricting will be stronger and the REDs will rule for a long long time.

  Depressing for sure and I hate that the REepublicans are so happy.  So things are going to happen fast.  It is not fun for liberals.  Thanks for at least trying to find some fun but Im afraid Im not laughing.  Keep trying tho.

More like the Three Stooges on acid.  BTW: Al Gore won the popular vote by over half a million.  Looks like HRC will end up with well over 2 million more votes than Trump.

Thanks Zanelle!  It's been very hard for me to even TRY to make light on the sudden & surprising pickle we're in - but the clouds parted just enough to squeeze this in. 

Sadly, as we've seen thus far at the "Hamilton" Play in New York - his thin-skin will be evident every day of his presidency & I for one - don't look forward to his daily tweet paranoia.

Thanks jmac for crunching the numbers...I got that figure somewhere!  Looks like Trump found another loophole squeezing out every last electoral vote!  Right now, he's riding high & living a narcissist' dream! 

Will we ever know the REAL truth about their Foundation & her emails in order to have closure - or does it matter any more?    

Comment by JMac1949 Today on November 21, 2016 at 12:36pm

It didn't matter in the first place.  HRC lost the election because she has an off putting personality and couldn't get the Obama coalition to turn out at the polls.  2016 was the first presidential election since 1972 where I chose not to vote for any candidate.

Comment by marilyn sands on November 21, 2016 at 2:27pm

jmac - yes, your articles reflected that clearly.  And, hard for you to watch "us" go thru the motions for 1 1/2 years of hateful rhetoric on both sides. 

Like that old joke: How do you know when a lawyer's lying?  When his mouth is moving!

I don't mind lies occasionally from politicians - but I don't want to be lied to by a mentally dangerous businessman in every sound bite or tweet!
