    The usually at least soemwhat ebullient Charles Pierce wrapped up one of today's blogs with this cheery thought:

    The only true resistance to whatever comes next is sadly confined to a civic and political imagination that has grown stunted and crippled, and a commitment to truth and to political involvement that long ago surrendered to distraction, flash, and meaningless intellectual junk food. The democratic muscles needed for pushback have atrophied almost to the point of uselessness, and that's alright because the institutions through which those muscles could be used are shells of themselves. Get ready for four (or eight) years of empty spectacle in the service of destructive policies that the president-elect doesn't care enough to understand.

    Talk about cognitive dissonance -"a gay midwest blue-eyed blond convert to Islam"!

    That Pierce quote seems apt, excepting that "destructive policies" is a couple of orders of magnitude of an understatement.

    Ruth, I remember thinking at the time, that's a whole crazy quilt of cognitive dissonance.  I wonder whatever happened to him.

    BB, I think Im going to ignore apocalyptic commentaries that I agree with, for a while.  I guess it's time for me to be irrelevant and grateful that the GenX'ers and Millenials will be fucking up the world even worse than the boomers did.  So glad we didn't turn out to be the worst generation.
