…and goodnight, America, you’ve been great. I wish I’d appreciated you while we were together. I tend to be negative and find faults in you. I tend to be an iconoclast, but today I realize we had it pretty good together, you and I. I’m sorry you had to die.
No, I will not give the new President a chance. I will not support him. I have no political differences to put aside because this is not about politics. I’ve voted Republican in the past, I’ve voted Democrat. I vote for people, not parties. I don’t entirely agree with any one party. But I agree that our leaders must be wise. I’d like to think my leader has more wisdom than me.
This man, this demagogue, this tyrant, this fool, this showman, this liar, this reality tv celebrity, has no more wisdom than me. I’d say he’s got far less. He does have more money. More ambition. More vindictiveness. More hurt inside his Grinch heart, and less capacity for growth. He’ll get worse now that he’s won, not better.
I would say I hope those who voted for him are happy, but I can’t say that. I hope those who voted for him feel remorse for their decision which will haunt all of us for the foreseeable future. If we are wise and persistent, we will repair this mistake and remove him from office. If not, goodnight America, you’ve been great.
