Guest Post: "Be Not Afraid"

Sent by Tusk. What follows, until my update, is his:

I like to lower expectations.

When I see a movie, I convince myself beforehand it'll suck.

That way, if it does actually suck, I'm not too disappointed; if it's good, I'm pleasantly surprised.

In this spirit, I've made myself visualize Hillary Clinton's victory speech daily for the past two weeks.

Every triumphant, vengeful gleam in her eye; every note of the cackle unleashed; every shout; every smirk.

It's already happened in my mind a dozen times.

So if it actually happens tonight, it'll just be the thirteenth time I'm experiencing it. And familiarity breeds content.

Many (including the Head Ewok) say that if we lose this election, it's Game Over.

I respectfully disagree.

If she wins, she comes into office with roughly the same field position as Nixon in January 1974. A bare majority of the country now thinks she's crooked; a significant majority has long thought she's generally untrustworthy and unlikeable.

Even if she has a Democratic Senate, the worst-case scenario for her opponents is that they face an unpopular, uncharismatic President, without Obama's magic force-field. (Of course, the flip side is that if Trump wins, he also comes into office with less-than-ideal field position. But utopia ain't on the menu.)

Will she take revenge on her deplorable, irredeemable enemies?

She'll probably try.

And if she does, we'll resist as best we can.

But if she loses ...

Oh boy.

Oh ... boy.

Be not afraid.

Expect the worst, hope for the best.

And vote. And get ten others to vote too.

Then hug your loved ones extra-tight, pray (if that's your thing--otherwise just plain hope) that we do the least-worst thing as a nation, and sit back to watch the fireworks.

See you on the other side.

Ace Back Again. Oddly enough, a friend called this morning with this exact same question -- what will be Hillary's caterwauled first line of her acceptance speech? This is the friend who observed that Hillary speaks like she's solving a puzzle on Wheel of Fortune: LITTLE... HOUSE... ON THE... PRAIRIE...!

His guess was "That noise... you just... heard....? The sound of... the world's... tallest... glass ceiling... being... shattered...!"

I told him I thought she already used that line at the Democrat National Convention.

But in fairness, I could see her deploying it again. She has neurological issues. Her brain is all rotten garbage held together by L-Dopa and snakes.
