Any Silver Linings Here?
Looking for a silver lining in last night's Bizarro World travesty is sort of like losing your house, being relegated to a cardboard box and then saying “Hey, cool! Now I won't have to deal with those neighborhood kids walking across my lawn any more.”
But in the long run — I know, we'll all be dead in the long run — there was one encouraging statistic in yesterday's election. Voters in the 18 to 25 age bracket voted Democrat in almost every state. The only red states were Kentucky, West Virginia, North Dakota, Idaho and Wyoming.
So, that's the future; if we can live long enough to enjoy it.
