Boy, this election is a real cliffhanger

That makes me hungry. For red meat. 


hanger steak

What?

Actually, I wandered into Palettes and wondered what it is, found out, and thought, "Wunderbar!"

The outfit on the hanger look like something Lady gaga would wear.

Java dusted. That's coffee, isn't it?

Yuck. If I ate that I'd be up all night.

I do an impression of a friend on coffee. Apparently it's hilarious. I was trying to be mean, not funny. I lay supine on the sofa, rather rigid and shake violently. It's very hard to do. Good exercise, I guess. Try doing it. Try shaking violently like you're have a full on epileptic seizure. Then through shaking and broken voice say, "I ... knew ... I shouldn't... have ... had ... that half ... cup ... of .... coffee ... two ... .... ... .... we...eks ... ago .... and keep shaking, let your arms fly up spastically, arch your back and flop back down, as if COMPLETELY out of control.

It helps having actually had epileptic fits. It helps knowing what that is like.

And whoever sees that laughs their asses off because it's so ridiculous. And true!

So that was that. End of my story.

Then the guy who I'm being mean to behind his back enters the room from outside and my friends insist I do it all over again to show him how he is ridiculed so ridiculously. In front of they guy, because they think it's too hilarious to miss. And the guy's all, "Show me. Show me. Show me. Show me. Show me. Show me. " And I'm all, "No way, Dude. It's mean." So I show him and they all crack up laughing all over again because he has to admit, it really is true.

He's such a massive pain in the ass.

I think it looks more like the piece of meat in Dan Aykroyd's Santa beard.

You know what, Trump won.

Enjoy you're steak.

I am glad we are not losing Meth.

Donald J. Trump: Here we go.

Unless and until there's something so egregious that I can't bear it (and make no mistake about it: there's almost nothing I can't bear, in contrast to way too many people here), from these early hours unto the end of extended years, from now onward I will be referring to you as President-elect Trump until 2017's inauguration, at which I point I will refer to you as President Trump.

I've never had a problem with accepting the outcomes of elections.

So it goes, I say, no matter what. Then, onward ho.

I have been consistent in terms of all of those things since I was kid.

rcommal said...

I got my kid up, in the middle of the night, so that he could see it, that which did not shock me at all.

Shocked, he was (on account of his spending so much time with his Papa and his dad).

I guess it ain't rigged, after all?

edutcher said...

To quote someone a bit more flawed than our President-elect, "Our long national nightmare is over".

He picked up states no other R could have picked up.

He will do things and make decisions that even his most ardent admirers will disagree with or disapprove. Reagan did. But he has moved the Overton window on so many issues.

I can relax now.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

I am glad we are not losing Meth.

Ditto.

rcommal said...

It is - look at VA and NV, but the people rose up and, in many states, began pulling down the rigging.

ricpic said...

Of course it was rigged. Unrigged it would have been a Trump tsunami. Which means it actually was a Trump tsunami. But why be bitter? When a miracle happens.....take it.

AllenS said...

The biggest question that I have, is how long should I leave my Trump lawn sign up.

Don't let the harsh elements destroy it. You might want to hang it inside somewhere.

I didn't think Trump could do it. I was wrong. (did you hear that everyone - I was wrong!)(Rabel gets to throw 'matoes at me)

I have been #Never-Hillary for 24 years. Even though I knew Obama was a disaster, I found a secret satisfaction when he defeated her in 2008. I was so hoping we were finally rid of her.

Hillary Clinton is pure evil. She is a pathological liar. The Clintons pocketed $250 million dollars since they left the white house the first time. They are grifters, money grubbers and they will sell anyone down the river for a buck - including the American people.

I never liked Trump, because he was an elbow rubber who fancied Hillary right up until he didn't. That said - I hope Trump keeps his promise to drain the swamp.

It needs draining.

That's OK April. Admitting your mistakes and apologizing is one of the 12 steps to recovery.

I sincerely thought that we would wake up to the horror show of a Hillary Presidency. Imagine my relief.

Now, when Trump brings on his advisors, his crew of specialists, appoints his cabinet, tackles the supreme court (taking out old lady Ginsberg first!) and gets to work with his incredible work ethic, I hope that we can begin to turn this ship around. The only question is how much more damage will Obama be able to wreak in the few months he has left. I bet that it will be a lot.

bagoh20 said...

GOOD MORNING AMERICA!

Congratulations Trumpers and Trumpettes!

Wonderful, amazing, inspiring.

I'm still no Trump fan, and he won less votes than Romney did, but I have renewed faith in the American voters who clearly rejected criminality and corruption. I can't express how relieved and even joyous I am about that.

I do expect Trump to be a good President, maybe a great one. Late in the race, he seemed to really get serious, and with hiring Kellyanne Conway, who was great, his rhetoric turned positive and focussed. If that guy continues to be who we elected I have the highest hopes. I expect him to do what he does well: find the best people, motivate them, and let them do what they do best. I expect him not to do exactly what has screwed up this country by hiring political people who don't know what they are doing. I've always wanted a businessman in there to see what goal oriented less political leadership can do. I think Trump can be that man.

Again, congrats, you guys. You and people like you with this vote against corruption have, at least in my mind, already Made America Great Again!

bagoh20 said...

The Supreme court! My God, the supreme court is saved.

I thank Trump voters for, among a bunch of other things, that you can't always buy your way to the Presidency. I'm thankful that you proved so many pundits, journalists and pollsters wrong. He killed the political expert, although I knows those zombies will not die.

bagoh20 said...

Poor Slick Willie is probably beaten beyond recognition this morning.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

I agree 100% with bags. The supreme court is saved. Hallelujah! A Hillary court packed with leftist ideologues would be the death of America.

And...as a person who has dealt with finances, investment, being business owners ourselves, I am THRILLED to have a business man in the White House. Wharton School of Finance instead of a community organizer or political hack.

Trump spent, effectively, $5 per vote. Now that is a business man who knows the about the bottom line and ROI.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

Nah. Hillary is probably still shaking off the hangover from her Johnny Walker overdose last night. Imagine the screaming harridan throwing things at everyone last night. The rage. The pain. The SCREECHING!!!! That makes me happy.

How Lefty is your neighborhood?

bagoh20 said...

I dunno.

Hillary has no one to blame but herself. The homebrew server, the greed, the lousy decisions at State, her personality,

One point I should have made at the top.

Now Smith, Stevens, Woods, and Doherty can RIP. I think her health will nosedive after the strain of this year (for real), but, for however long she's got, she'll be stuck in Chappaqua, maybe with nobody but Willie as he's toxic, too, with all those might-have-beens. This is the end of the influence peddling and the Global Slush Fund.

I thought I read she was so bombed Podesta had to do the concession.

oopsy, maybe today is the first day we start to take back CA.

Hey,

Miley Cyrus

BYE BYE!

Let's not get crazy now. Every society still needs an asylum somewhere.

ndspinelli said...

Many of the people who voted for Trump were like myself, bags, April and some others. We didn't like the guy but voted for him. Well, maybe April didn't? VOTING is what matters. Adoration is not required. I'm truly very happy for the Trump lovers here and around the country. And I'm equally happy for the sadness of Dems.

ndspinelli said...

Clinton not talking to her supporters last night was fucking CLASSLESS!

Christy said...

Trump's speech last night was a joy to behold.

DBQ - we have a song to sing...


DING DONG THE WITCH IS DEAD... WHICH OLD WITCH?... THE WICKED WITCH!... DING DONG THE WICKED WITCH IS DEAD!

AprilApple said...

ND - I did vote for Trump.

deborah said...

nick i'm pretty sure she was emotionally and physically incapable...and i dont mean drugged up, i mean undone.

AprilApple said...

...Not that it matters in CO - CA's pathetic mini-me. At least CO voted down amendment 69 - single payer health care. A $25 billion tax hike. the vote split was 20/80 against.

Some sanity prevailed here.

AprilApple said...

Hillary has spent the last 24+ years climbing and scheming to be president. It is never going to happen.

HILLARY CLINTON WILL NEVER BE PRESIDENT.

deborah said...

well, i she probably did have to be medicated, but that goes along with what i mean.

ampersand said...

Yesterday was a dark and gloomy day here. I went to vote, The polling place was fairly empty. I felt uneasy all day. I didn't listen to any radio or watch tv, expecting the worst.
Lem's Place is the first place I came to to get the bad news. WOW. It's like Easter and Christmas morning rolled into one.

Ding Dong the WItch is Dead!

MamaM said...

i'm pretty sure she was emotionally and physically incapable...

That's been true for a while, weeks, months if not years. Hillary is not a healthy woman, emotionally or physically.

deborah said...

yes, and that furthers my point.

Darcy said...

I believe in miracles. That was a miracle.

So thankful that common sense prevailed. Donald Trump took the worst beating from the press and his opponent that I have ever witnessed. I felt for his family. It did not have to be that ugly. I'm inspired by the fact that people brushed that off and voted for him anyway. I didn't think he could overcome the vulgar and horrific smears.

A miracle.

deborah said...

ryan is a weasel...what are the chances he'll be voted out of the speakership. i should know, but is there an automatic re-vote with an incoming administration?

Darcy said...

Hillary is not a healthy woman, emotionally or physically.

So true. I'm feeling a bit of compassion for her today. I'm kind of ashamed to say that I'm surprised by that feeling.

Darcy said...

Has Methadras made an appearance since Trump won? Lem's place won as well. We go forward together. Yay!

I "sang" this to Victoria (vbspurs) last night on Twitter:

Chang chang changitty chang sha-bop
That's the way it should be
Wah-oooh, yeah!

deborah said...

normally i'd be feeling compassion, but what with the server and the clinton foundation and fucking up the middle east, she has the stench of an imelda marcos or winnie mandela.

AllenS said...

What will Hillary do now? She sure doesn't need Bill any more, and Bill hasn't needed her for a long, long time. There's now nothing to stop the Government from looking into that criminal enterprise that they've been shaking down people and countries for cash. Will anyone give them any more money now that they are irrelevant?

AprilApple said...

Meth come back!

@ Deboarh 11:32 - agreed. I have zero sympathy or empathy for Hillary. It's like having empathy for a corrupt dictator who is finally facing long awaited comeuppance.

ampersand said...

What will Hillary do now? She and Bubba should retire to pedophile island, start a crocodile farm and take care of any pesky witnesses still around.

ampersand said...

Meth's in California, no? It may still be early for him, or like me dreading the worst and avoiding all news.

Darcy said...

I'm quite sure Meth thought it was a done deal. I did, too. This is just crazy unbelievable.

My fiancé and I were just beside ourselves with awe and delight today. We had prepared ourselves for defeat and reminded each other of the only hope we need - our Savior. But I was aching still with dread. I'm as grateful for my faith as ever, but also aware of how fragile it is because doubt very effectively erodes it much of the time.

I am not sure God picked a winner here. I wouldn't say that. I believe most often that He allows so many our foolish choices precisely because in the end they will draw us nearer to Him.

Something to ponder as history continues to unfold.

Sixty Grit said...

Darcy, that's kind of a subtle way to announce that you are engaged - can we throw you a party? I hear wooden bowls make great wedding gifts, just sayin'...

ndspinelli said...

April, Good job. I know it was tough.

ndspinelli said...

Darcy, Being a true Christian is having empathy for people you don't like. Kudos. I fall short on this one.

Those two are so toxic, I doubt anybody wants to be near them.

I have a feeling (said it before) they will spend their days in bitterness looking at each other back in Chappaqua.

As long as the money holds out because they have no more influence to peddle.

ndspinelli said...

Darcy, Congrats on the upcoming nuptials. Do you need a background check on the guy?

deborah said...

congrats, darcila! you deserve the best :)

AllenS said...

Darcy! Congratulations! I see that someone has picked a winner, and a lovely one at that.

Darcy said...

Thanks, everyone! He's a keeper. :)

I can't believe I moved to Colorado only to find that my beloved Michigan FINALLY went red. But I'm going to be a proud ex-Michigal, nonetheless!

Amartel said...

Canada prepares for an onslaught of elderly, out-of-touch, privileged, arrogant, vindictive, sweary, emotionally needy white people. Oh, now a wall doesn't sound so bad, does it?

Amartel said...

Congrats to Darcy. Great news.
What's the story with Methadras? Did he make a dramatic exit or something?

Methadras said...

He's a lucky dude. I'm happy for you both.

I was keeping to my promise that if Hillary won, I would never be seen here again or anywhere near the face of politics. That I would simply melt away into the fabric of my life and basically tune out of politics forever. Then I said my goodbyes to everyone and acknowledged those here at Lem's that mattered to me and I know I forgot a whole ton of other people, but I did it on the fly since it was election day so I had to hurry up because of the feelz.

Anyway, Trump won and don't have an excuse to leave now. :D

Synova said...

Congratulations, Darcy.

rcommal said...

...thought it was a done deal. I did, too. This is just crazy unbelievable. ...


I didn't, though. I did not think it was a done deal. I thought this scenario was entirely believable and nothing crazy about it, much less unbelievable.

And so it came to pass.

(Ya wanna talk about stunned? I suggest you talk to my husband and my father-in-law, for just a couple of examples. Both Trump voters._

rcommal said...

My husband to me: "Wow. You called it."

rcommal said...

Toldja.

rcommal said...

What ever else you all might accuse me of, unfair and unthinking analysis ought not be be among all of that.

Darcy said...

You all are very kind. Thank you!

Trump and Methadras. Win-win.
