The One We Got Wrong

oh161109Oops.

To our credit, we weren’t alone. Almost no one (except for Scott Adams) got this right. And he was right because he said the election wasn’t about issues it was about fear. And fear is a powerful (maybe the most powerful) motivator. Okay, I buy that, but… I do think facts win out in the end. That end is now two to four years away. America is an experiment that never quite resolves. Yesterday we took a giant step backwards because most of America is frightened of the future. But the future will happen anyway. And trying to hold it back is a waste of effort.

Onward.

    “All the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre — the man who can most adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum. The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.” H. L. Mencken
