The Election

The Presidential election, you thought it was over, right?  Not hardly.

As I was explaining to a friend yesterday, the presidential election hasn't even happened yet.  No, that's going to be on December 19th, a scant week away.  On that date, the electors will meet in their respective state capitols and cast votes to determine the next president of the United States.

The left, of course, has figured out this is happening.  It came as a shock to many of them, but they've finally grasped the basic civics lesson, and they're in full-throated unhinged fury, hoping (against all hope) that someone other than Donald J. Trump will ascend to the presidency.  They are appealing to "Hamilton" electors who will save the nation from what they consider to be the most mentally defective person ever to get this far in a presidential race.

For sheer lunacy, watch Keith Olbermann's rant.

For angst and anguish, outrage and courageousness, it's unequaled. Yet, it's what your Democrat friends are thinking.  They are truly outraged that they lost and don't quite know how to handle it.  The fact that they lost what should have been the easiest election in our lifetimes have them truly demoralized.  I can empathize with them, I understand what it is like to be on the losing side of an election where you believe that the winner is truly evil.  I've felt like that for the past eight years.

If the Democrats think this year is bad, they need only look forward to 2018 when the Democrats will be defending some 23 Senate seats.  The Republicans could end up with supermajorities in both the House and the Senate, and the Democrats would not even have to come to work in the mornings.  Their votes would be totally irrelevant to any debate.  Oh, joyous days.
