the us election

I’m trying to figure out how to feel better given that the facts aren’t going away.  Maybe a little venting via Gary Younge in the Guardian:

Americans have just elected the party they like the least to run the government body they least trust. Even greater cynicism is the most likely outcome.

On Tuesday night, the electorate wasn’t waving. It was drowning.

I hope that doesn’t make you feel worse, dear reader!
