There are a few things we should all keep in mind over the next four years. No matter what I write, or how much I write, or what I write about, these things will stay front and center in my consciousness even if I don’t repeat them constantly:
- We have elected a loudmouth, race-baiting game show host president of the United States. A. Game. Show. Host.
- However that happened, it happened by a shift of one or two percentage points in the electorate. Don’t listen to anyone on either side who writes lazy think pieces about how this portends a sea change in Western civilization and validates everything they’ve been saying all along.
- A whole lot of people are going to suffer a whole lot over the next four years.
