This feels like watching a nun savage her own back with stones tied to a leather strap, but she looks radiant and I definitely don't knock Hillary for doing the normal and customary thing by attending the inauguration of the person Paul Krugman has wittily dubbed “Donald the Unready.”
I do think today is proof the United States is a failed concept, and going forward, it's just about surviving and trying to pick up the pieces. But knowing it is possible for an incompetent, malevolent billionaire to waltz into the Oval Office kills any faith I will ever have in our system. Period. End.
