Election Night and the Day After
My wife and I went to the Eastons at 6, to eat American chili, drink wine, and watch to the election returns. Betsy Easton is absolutely confident of a Trump victory, Gail Fleming refuses to believe that anything so wonderful could happen, Jim and I agree that it is possible, if rumors of a big turn-out among old-fashioned Americans prove true. I take heart from the wacky conservative websites I have looked at, where people are bragging not only about voting for the first time in years but also claim to have dragged friends and family to the polls.
So far at 9 central time, the scenario scripted by the Clintons is not playing out.
Our wives like Kellyanne Conway but recommend collagen. I and Jim recommend she return to the crypt.
Just in. Stock futures plummeting. Fantastic!
Trying to do a blog on an iPhone while watching the returns turned out not to be a gret idea, but with my laptop, even here in the orthodpedic surgeon's office, I can update this post with trivial observations all day long.
James D. --see comment below--says this is the only good presidential election of his life. I am probably twice his age, but I agree. This is the first time when normal people could vote against the revolution, not just against big government or anti-war protestors, or crooks, but against a regime that privileges aliens and foreigners over citizens, tax-consumers over tax-payers, non-Christian non Europeans above the people who settled and made this country. Even if Trump, on inauguration day, were to pull of his Trump mask and reveal himself to be Hillary, laughing at the fools she tricked into supporting her alter ego, Trump voters have shown that it is just barely possible to stand up against the revolution.
Commentators last night observed that pro-Trump Republican candidates did better on the whole than anti-Trump GOP candidates. It was with real pleasure that I voted for the Libertarian candidate for Senate, here in Illinois: anyone but Mark Kirk. Kirk spent most of his campaign--that is,when he was not calling for the slaughter of the innocent around the globe--denouncing Trump. He lost.
Hollywood will soon be as empty of stars as it is of talent. I am happy that George Stephanopoulos is going to New Zealand, but what did New Zealand do to deserve such a pathetic liar? He was still lying on CNN as I went to bed. Rumor has it that Brad and Angelina are both going to Canada, but Brad is being sent to the Maritimes while Angelina is being exiled to Saskatchewan.
