I will admit to some soul searching.

"They can't be that incompetent, after all, they won a national election!" Nope. Totally that incompetent.

"He's gotta gain some gravitas once he's actually behind the desk. I mean, he can't treat this like a reality TV show." Nope. Totally treating it like a reality TV show.

"They can't just keep running against everything when they have the house, the senate, the executive and the judicial. I mean, what's opposing them?" Nope. Totally got the government within 18 hours of a shutdown.

I'm halfway to concluding the Republican party isn't adversarial to the Democrats - they're pure dead weight no matter who is in charge.

I knew it was going to be a gong show. But as someone who still loves the country and what it can be, I was hoping that he would be a guy that could work in the background and no be a total fuckup. Hell it took Clinton about six months to really get into the role of leader after the first WTC attack.

Between Trump, Reagan and that cunt Sonny Bono, I hope we never elect an actor/entertainer to national office again. Even Franken sold us out on the net neutrality and copyright fights.

William F Buckley got what he wanted; a party of human skidmarks "shouting 'stop.'"
