The Morning Report 11/8/16 [J.J. Sefton]


Good morning, kids. Well, after eight long years enduring the destruction/dismantling of everything we hold near and dear, this is it. Day Zero. There are those that think Donald Trump is going to win in a landslide, and there are those who predict just the opposite (see Ace from last night). One thing, at least from my perspective, is you fight for a cause not because you know you can win. You fight because you know it's the right thing to do, even though it's hopeless. Please don't infer from that last sentence my feelings about today's outcome. I have no idea and I'm scared to death. But whether this time tomorrow we are dipping our collective nads in the biggest vat of pudding in the known universe or, G-d forbid, enduring the unendurable the fight goes on. More importantly, life goes on. Take comfort and strength from family, friends, the good Lord above and the things that give you joy. You're a great bunch of people and what I wouldn't give to get you all in bar somewhere this evening, buying rounds of Val-U-Rite for the house. Now, let's win this thing.

Lastly, someone suggested a predictions thread, so with that in mind here's a handy little Interactive Electoral College Map for you to play with. H/T CBD.
