    • The Younger You Are the More Your Vote Should Count
      In most countries the young vote less than the old (though if someone champions them, as Corbyn did, their voting rates soar). But the young are the very people with the most stake in how society is run. If you’ve got 60 years ahead of you, well, it matters that society is well run for […]

I’ve been in denial for several weeks because I knew that “President Trump” would be a two word combinination  that was going to provoke a gag response every time I had to say it. 

But it really hit me this morning just how bad the next X number of days are going to be when I saw this from Colbert. 

It’s not that he has no experience. Smart people can learn on the job. It’s not that he’s a Republican. I never thought I’d actually miss the Bush years, as bad as they were. We survived them. The constitution pretty much remained intact and the government hummed along. 

No, this is different. 

This is a sickening feeling brought on by the man’s complete incompatibility with the position, his inability to grow into it, and the incongruity of reconciliation between what is in his head and what he desperately needs to see is important. 

There is no better man in there waiting to get out. He really is as small as he looks. His heart will not grow five sizes plus two. 

He is just that bad – Another five words no one wants to say or admit. 

Denial time is over. No more daydreaming and distractions. Going to a huddle tonight.
