And exit-polling creates measures of victimhood, and nothing else.

Smart people voted for Trump. Dumb people voted for Hillary. Unpopular people voted for McMorman. Stoners forgot to vote for anyone including Johnson. Then there was that Jill broad.

Threadkiller

This from the 5th was overlooked due to an election. I suggest everyone read it in its entirety.

Very, very bad stuff going on here...

BR

"The metaphor of "Having an appointment in Samarra", signifying death, is a literary reference to an ancient Babylonian myth, transcribed by W. Somerset Maugham in which Death is both the narrator and a central character. The story, "The Appointment in Samarra", subsequently formed the germ of a popular novel by John O'Hara. The original story was re-told in verse by F.L. Lucas in his poem 'The Destined Hour' in From Many Times and Lands (1953)."
wiki re Samarra

11-3-16 ISIS leader born in Samarra, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, fled last stronghold of ISIS jihadis, Mosul, while encouraging his fighters to fight and die there.

11-9-16 Hillary lost, she spurs on her followers and retreats.
By 11-11ish Clintons' and Obama's last remaining followers were feebly protesting
And the new breakaway Dem group who wants to copy the Tea Party playbook will go nowhere.

Marlene

There have been protests in the other Portland (Maine) over the week-end. Interesting to note that Pingree (ME-1) a Hillary super delegate,easily won another term. I wonder how many bitter Bernie supporters voted for Pingree? Idiots.

BR

W. Somerset Maugham (from a play)
The Appointment in Samarra
"There was a merchant in Bagdad who sent his servant to market to buy provisions and in a little while the servant came back, white and trembling, and said, Master, just now when I was in the marketplace I was jostled by a woman in the crowd and when I turned I saw it was Death that jostled me. She looked at me and made a threatening gesture, now, lend me your horse, and I will ride away from this city and avoid my fate. I will go to Samarra and there Death will not find me. The merchant lent him his horse, and the servant mounted it, and he dug his spurs in its flanks and as fast as the horse could gallop he went. Then the merchant went down to the marketplace and he saw me standing in the crowd and he came to me and said, Why did you make a threating getsture to my servant when you saw him this morning? That was not a threatening gesture, I said, it was only a start of surprise. I was astonished to see him in Bagdad, for I had an appointment with him tonight in Samarra."

Why are you folks so happy? It's just whistling through the graveyard of neoconservative objectives.

Trump knows that a deal is good only if all parties feel a little unhappy.

Comanche Voter

Who wrote that "group inclusive" lede for the New York Times? I bet their pappy or maybe their grandpappy (these are young uns after all) wrote the scripts for WW II movies. You know the ones where the squad had an Italian from Brooklyn, a Polish guy from Pittsburgh, a cowboy from Wyoming, a farm boy from Illinois, and an idiot from Alabama. Well--not an idiot--just slow walkin' and slow talkin' but could shot the eye out of a squirrel with a .22 rifle. You know the sort of movie where ethnic diversity showed we were all in this together.

Somehow I don't think the script would have worked as well with a transgender black lesbian in the squad. Ah well, times do change. As for the New York Times and their writers some things don't change. Ignorance can be cured, but stupid is forever.

Matt - deplore me if you must

The sheer idiocy being played out is a cultural milestone. Believe it or not I got a Bush/Cheney war criminal post this morning.

The constituency where the UC Irvine professors live went 98% Clinton. It sounds Stalinesque. Imagine being a conservative on that campus, where the Muslim Brotherhood has been so active. The dissonance with western values is stunning.

The new slogan of the Democratic Party is "Shut up, they explained".

A friend was in Lake Tahoe yesterday watching the football game in a bar wearing a MAGA hat and two other women began hurling slurs and epithets at her. She finally responded and one of them tossed her drink on her.

She called for the Sheriff's and they were arrested and barred from the property.

I fear this is going to escalate. They really do not want to go there. This is the result of the lies and propaganda of the Left.

Another old acquaintance was peddling some crazypants "bill" that would remove the Electoral College and make the country a direct democracy.

Another proposed a wraparound of Canada with the East and West coasts.

They really do hate us.

Gypsy Kings beautiful music, especially Viento Del Arena - a song for Kali.

I dont read David Brooks. Ever. There is no real point. The NYT cant fool me by calling him a conservative. He has nary a good word for anything remotely conservative, and is never even mildly for a conservative candidate for office. He is a progressive, who plays a conservative on the NYT pages. Not very well, but that show is in reruns and does not get many looks these days anyhow and certainly none from me. I suggest you join me.

After the toxic Brooks comment, I think someone needs to call "fair warning".

Either these people accept the result of the election or there will be serious consequences.

Of course this plays into the hands of the radicals, but how do we as a republic regain our civic responsibilities and exercise our duties when the Left has been doing its best to undermine the rule of law?

It is a massive psychotic break. Someone needs to grab there children by the ear and send them to their rooms without internet access for 24 hours.

Time to reflect on their negative attitude, that's what I told my kids when I punished them.

"It is a massive psychotic break"

Seems to support my theory that leftism is a contagious mental illness. Currently spread by contact with public education, TV, Movies, News and dimorats.

Old Lurker

Do away with the Electoral College?

One glance at the Red-Blue maps of county results makes it real clear how smart the Founders were. Can't see all those flyover counties wanting to be ruled by their Betters on the two coasts, can you?

"Here's something to drive your blood pressure up"

Actually, I ended up thinking that Brooks has finally beclowned himself beyond repair. Trump derangement syndrome goes BDS one better by adding an impenetrable layer of utterly clueless lack of self-awareness.

The spinzon linke seems so fantastic I'm questiong it but cannot find evidence it's false.

FTL

I fear this is going to escalate. They really do not want to go there. This is the result of the lies and propaganda of the Left.saved for last.

It will escalate and get uglier. The elites are funding violent protesters, and the MSM and the democrat party luminaries are going to echo chamber each other from their current tacit approval and making excuses to outright fully voiced support between now and inauguration day.

And then President Trump will get on TV and say something to the effect of, "Cut it out!" and it will all melt away. The dark cloud of damaged property and shattered lives will have the silver lining of thousands of minutes of youtube footage of the worst of our worst cheering and egging on the criminals.

It's a long way back from here to restoration of the rule of law. Here's to hoping that enforcing the prohibition of attainder is last on the list of priorities.

boris

Important things Trump has already accomplished:

  1. Kept the Clintons from returning to the White House;
  2. Manipulated, exploited, confounded the Mainstream Media and exposed their one sided bias;
  3. Exposed formerly respected pols and pundits as untrustworthy;
  4. Discredited Political Correctness;
  5. Revealed the psychosis infecting organized activism

clarice b. for Brainiac

Yes, he has, Boris.

JM Hanes

Don't take this as encouragement, but LOL, TK

6. Provided the coattails sufficient to keep both houses of Congress.

DebinNC

David Brooks sounds deranged. If he still has that PBS gig with Mark Shields, who now seems like the sane one, I hope he loses it pronto. He sounds like he's begging to get dropped and parlay that to a prime time lefty spot.

Matt:

I recommend just relaxing and taking the time to savor today's fantastic Clarice's Pieces! Yes, there is monumental work ahead, but right now, just look at how far we've come. The quadrennial push to eliminate the electoral college is as predictable as clockwork, and I won't worry about the protesters till they come up with a really catchy name and slogan for themselves. Somehow, I don't see the press running very far with the "Not My Country" movement. Even slow witted celebrities have already abandoned that ship. LOL. BEE!

Loved the Pieces, Clarice!

The Upper West Side Daily Shopper really has sunk low. They have denounced themselves and can now move on to peddling conspiracy theories and alien abductions.

I am going to imagine that the thought leaders will be congregating shortly to discuss how to topple the United States government. The comments out of educated idiots such as Moore and Friedman and Brooks are the tip of the iceberg.

The despair in DC is palpable on both sides. The disregard for the Constitution and rule of law has these idiots thinking they can get away with murder, as they apparently have in Philadelphia with a homeless veteran.

The virus has affected the coasts and is now spreading to places like Nevada and Colorado. Time to move the Capital to the Midwest.

OL, the Pinch letter was all noise -- parsed, qualified, and nuanced.

Not worth reading. Still, I read it, and that reaffirmed it was not worth reading.

The NY Times cannot rededicate itself to something it never had.

Which of the thirty states that Trump won are in a hurry to do away with the electoral college? Which of the thirty+ states with Rep governors / state legislatures are interested in passing a constitutional amendment to revoke the electoral college system? Silly liberals. Go sit in the corner.

Felicitations on this special day, sbw. Think of you now every time I read "AP's Julie Pace", who's a BOzo favorite, always gets the first question, and who I hope Trump ignores as much as possible.

http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/305617-seething-liberals-vow-revolution-in-democratic-party

This is really funny. The GOP just taught the Left a major lesson and the far left wants to overthrow the few remaining moderate Democrats.

Tom Del Becarro just pointed out that this election was a disaster for Democrats except in a couple of states like California and Nevada.

1 - 69 of the 99 state legislative chambers are now controlled by the Republicans (Nebraska is unicameral - one legislative body not two).

2 - 24 states have a Republican governor and the entire control of the legislature - only 6 states have the same for Democrats. 34 Republican governors - 16 Democrat governors.

3 - 1/3 of the Democrats in the House come from just 3 states: Massachusetts, New York and California.

But the Republicans have to perform. It is on them now.

TK --

"Smart people voted for Trump. Dumb people voted for Hillary."

My experience in life tells me that if this were true, Rodham would have won in a landslide.

Trump won because, broadly speaking, the voters did not want Rodham and probably did not want a third Ohama term. If she had gotten the votes that Obama got in 2012, she would have gotten 303 electoral college votes. If she had gotten the votes Obama got in 2008, it would have been a landslide.

The voters did not so much choose Trump as they rejected Hillary.

I did not expect this to happen but that is what did in fact happen.

henry,

Granddaughter, through my clever intervention, did not go. She went to a movie with friends and was home by 10:30.

I am glad I had her father lay the law down. Seventeen people were arrested last night and 2 injured. They were throwing rocks and bottles at police. Also, the police chief said 9 of the arrested were not from Indiana, so here's hoping they can build some information on where they came from and who paid them.

Ryan thinks he won the election, along with his #NeverTrump coconspirators (Romney, Kristol, Wilson et al).

Hello, Theo!
It was a political trial by combat, and it took an unlikely Donald Trump to dispatch the most overtly corrupt politician of my lifetime.

DebinNC

Reading about all the BOzo edicts Trump could undo leaves me stunned that Hillary didn't run full-out on keeping them, especially the last few weeks when she spent all her time bashing Trump instead. She could have come across as an intelligent, articulate, liberal champion, but chose to be an angry, strident, off-putting, hate-filled scaremonger.

daddy on iPad

The beer here at the Anchor Pub is talking but....

...George Will on the short bit I saw of him on FOX came across to me almost like Bobby Ewing in the old TV show Dallas, where after JR Ewing got shot and a whole years worth of stuff happened, Bobby simply stepped out of the shower and said "Hey Pam" and we found out the entire preceding years episodes was a dream sequence that didn't actually happen. Let's don't let all these guys at National Review and the Weekley Standard and every else get away with pulling a "Bobby Ewing." I don't mind their getting back in the game a tad and trying to redeem themselves, but like puppies they need to first have their noses dragged up to wherever they pooped on the rug and shoved in it until they understand their smelly productions stunk up and the joint and weren't appreciated.

BTW, anybody seen hide nor hair of Kevin Williamson?

More DT on 60 Min: "Trump also told “60 Minutes” that the border wall, which was one of the centerpieces of his campaign platform, could be part wall and “some fencing,” in accordance with what congressional Republicans have proposed. “For certain areas I would, but certain areas, a wall is more appropriate,” he said. “I’m very good at this, it’s called construction.”
