I'll Miss Obama
There's good news and bad news. Which do you want to hear first?
I blame Hillary Clinton for Trump's victory. I blame most of the people on the left.
The one person I don't blame is Obama. He has been a voice of reason and inclusion. I'm going to miss The Man They Wouldn't Let Be President. Very much.
I texted all my friends early last night to say that the election was in the bag. It was, but I had picked the wrong candidate. I thought Clinton would win in a landslide. I switched between networks. I was surprised at the coverage. Wolf Blitzer wouldn't shut up and let John King do his job. He got on my last nerve, so I switched over to Fox. I was surprised at how good the coverage was. I don't think they could believe what they were seeing. But the Face of the Night was Rachel Maddow's, smugness become outrage. Vitriol personified.
I don't feel well today. Maybe it is a virus, I don't know. I want to check into a hotel for the weekend, some resort where I can float in the pool and look at the sky, someplace twice removed from reality.
I will listen to the unhappy theorists today. I will try not to argue with them. They are not going to be gracious losers, I think (link) (link).
I'm really going to miss Obama.
