I also wonder who the Dems will run in 2020. They don't have much of a bench that I can see.

Just how atrocious does your candidate have to be to lose to someone as reprehensible as Donald Trump? We now know the answer.

I have to believe the Plagiarist In Chief is kicking himself for not having thrown his hat into the ring...

Hi Mary

Your name isn't too familiar, from which I extrapolate that you don't weigh in here very often; or at least not as often as I do. So I'm happy to give you the benefit of the doubt; and urge you to troll through my comments on this board. I challenge you to find anyone here who is more anti-Trump than I am. I don't call him Donnie Douchebag because I'm such a big fan.

Could our agreement on that issue lay the foundation for a civil dialogue? Or should I be evicted from the conversation because half my ancestors are "white", or at least that can pass as white on the street as we say..."

Incidentally – who is “we”? Am I included in your definition of “we”? The “we” I'm part of has always avoided segregating people based on their ethicities or gender, so maybe you'd have to exclude me from your “we”. Just like FDR did with my grandfather, perhaps.

Yoko Ono has weighed in. I don't think she qualifies as "white", or at least that can pass as white on the street as we say..." so this is undoubtedly a Mary-approved declaration. And Yoko's observations are nearly as lucid as Mary's.

Classes Being Canceled Because Trump Won Is Why Trump Won

It’s everywhere. A professor at University of Michigan postponed an exam after too many students complained about their “very serious” stress. Columbia University postponed midterms, a Yale University professor made an exam optional, a University of Iowa professor canceled classes and a University of Connecticut professor excused class absences — all because their students just absolutely could not function knowing that they’d have to live in a country where their president would not be the president that they wanted. And it’s not even just the students — a University of Rochester professor canceled all of his meetings with students the day after the election because he decided he just could not bear to talk about it with them. alt text

More thoughtful discourse from the peaceful, tolerant left. The guy who fired his gun into the crowd? Don't worry about it! He wasn't "white", or at least that can pass as white on the street as we say..." as Mary would point out - he was an African American expressing how upset he is that he's in a country with a President that's not the President he wants. So it's all good. Right, Mary?

What Ken said. Denigrating and/or excluding anyone from a discussion based on how you've chosen to label them is a doctrine right of the Dark Ages, and more recently, from the Jim Crow South.

Wakarimasu ka, Bubba-san? Some pidgin Japanese for you, Mary. It means: Do you understand? I suspect not, as the left seems permanently wedded to the fraud & division of identity politics. We are no longer Americans together, in their eyes. We are hyphenated victims; obliged to be perpetually offended by anyone who presumes to disagree. Oh well. しょうがない, as my grandmother would have said.

Incidentally, unlike Barry's grandmother, mine was not a "typical white person." I wonder if Barry & Hillary (and Mary) regard that to be a good or a bad thing?

A gay Muslim Pakistani anti-Trump immigrant, defending Trump supporters. If we are serious about healing the division Ms. Schubert-Akin addresses in the piece, we could do worse than to follow Mr. Patel's example.

Anti-Trump protesters march for 3rd night; Portland police call it a 'riot'

One of the more ridiculous fables served up by the left en route to the the vote was that Trump supporters would unleash a wave of violence on election day or after. They turn out to have been right that the election would result in violence. But since it's being perpetrated by their side, it's all good.
