Two Things With Donald Trump...

One, I wish him luck. For eighteen months, he was a loose cannon; yesterday in his victory speech, he was suddenly all things to everyone, let's reach across the aisle, come together, and teach the world to sing in perfect harmony. I gotta hand it to him -- he can make himself believe anything that comes out of his mouth as much as he can make others believe that stuff. I'm impressed. Not even politicians can do that anymore.

 But two, I also wish him sense. And I'm a typical liberal -- deep down, I'm willing to believe anything twice, even when I've seen this movie before and know full damn well what to expect. I wish Trump luck because I'm sick and tired of this Two Americas bullshit. I wish him sense because this Two Americas bullshit is here to stay, he's gonna be our next president because of it, and I don't want him to make this thing any more toxic than it already is.

 Expect the worst, hope for the best. That's all I have to offer...
