I think Atrios called the election right when he said that “whatever happens on election day, it’ll prove that america is, now and forever, a center right country”. Tomorrow night and Wednesday morning are likely to be brutal for those of us who are unfortunate enough to watch television or read newspapers.
That’s why I’m glad to be here. Before the internets, I had no choice but to listen to Howard Fineman prattle on about right-center nations and liberal overreach. Now, at least I can enjoy a little gallows humor among like-minded people.
It’s hard for me to believe this will last. Eventually, our Galtian overlords will decide that vituperative, foul-mouthed unseriousness is bad for the free markets. (It goes without saying that principled libertarians will agree.)
So let’s enjoy this all while we can.
