A banner day for the stupid among us. The most idiotic nominee for president in the history of the Republic has just been given the blessing of the Electoral College. Arguably the goddamned thing shouldn't even exist. Still, here we sit with this buffoon who won an election - if that is what you want to call it - where nearly 45% of us didn't bother to vote, an estimated 30% voted down ballot only and his opponent won the popular vote by almost 3,000,000. You do the math.
To paraphrase the great writers at National Lampoon, "We are flukes of the Universe. We may have lost our right to be here, and whether we can hear it or not, the Universe is laughing behind our backs."
