When I got a gag gift for Christmas, I installed it in my bathroom and took a photo of it. Here it is:
I shared it on my Facebook page and got the expected likes and a few comments. One of the comments was from an old acquaintance (and misguided Trump voter) who suggested I was a "sore loser" who should "give him a chance like Obama had."
Give him a chance? I suppose I have no choice, only to the extent there is no practical way to prevent him from being sworn into office in a couple weeks. That's about all the "chance" Republicans gave to Obama as they dedicated themselves to eight solid years of monolithic opposition and obstruction.
But I will not give him a chance to harm the country by reversing fifty years of progress with his half-baked brain farts and midnight tweets. I will not sit in silent acquiescence as McConnell and Ryan use him to implement their regressive agenda. I will speak out, act out, write out, show up and do whatever I can to protest against the madness, and hopefully to stop it. I may not succeed, but I have to try.
If my refusal to be "supportive" and to stop saying "mean" (true) things about Little Donnie Pixie Fingers makes me a "sore loser," so be it. He is a dangerous accident, an unqualified, insecure, divisive charlatan with a short fuse and no filters. If we are to survive the next four years without a Trump-induced catastrophe, a Cheeto-dusted flock of supportive sheep will be of no use. Instead, it will take organized and informed sore-loser citizens holding conservatives to account and calling them out on every bit of their injustice, hypocrisy, corruption and greed.
So I'm sorry, dear readers, if I'm something less than a gracious loser. We're not talking about some little old football game here.
Meanwhile, the epidermally delicate Mango Man-Baby remains something less than gracious himself. His twisted "Happy New Year" tweet shows him yet again as the childish, charmless egomaniac he truly is. You might call him a sore winner.
Happy New Year to all, including to my many enemies and those who have fought me and lost so badly they just don't know what to do. Love!
