All day today when I ask people what the plan is, I get a nonsequiter answer saying something like, “If only X had happened, then you wouldn’t be asking.”
(I’m on Team Superman, by the way.)
So, riddle me this: What if Bernie had been the losing candidate? Or Elizabeth Warren? Or if Comey hadn’t ginned-up the email crap last week? What if the press had covered Trump’s tax returns? What if the moon is made of cheese?
We can go on all day asking nonsensical hypothetical questions; it doesn’t matter now.
So the Purity Posse tells us that it is our fault that Trump won because Clinton is a centrist. I ask what the plan is and they shout: Drones! TPP! Torture!
Trump will have control of the CIA, the FBI, the IRS, the NSA, drones and nuclear weapons. Healthcare: gone. Well done, America.

So burn the fucker to the ground, that’s the plan. That’s white privilege right there: Susan Sarandon will come out of this clusterfuck fine; she can afford to be pure. But the kindling for burning the whole damn thing down is going to be people who are already beaten down, those who are without a champion.
And I got your cronyism right here: Trump’s potential list of cabinet nominees, which includes putting Mooselini in as the head of the Department of the Interior, and a Goldman-Sachs dude in the Treasury. Read this thing and tell me that’s the country you want to live in.
We have but one battle now: We must stop Hair Führer’s Agenda from being implemented. And we need everyone on deck, so let’s stop the circular firing squad and focus.
