I swear, I wake up each morning, hoping that this month was just a really terrible dream, a la Pam Ewing in Dallas. I can't believe we've come to the point in this country where someone so vastly unqualified, so uninformed, so ridiculously thin-skinned, so determined to not follow any norm or tradition could actually be considered the best option for the White House by so many Americans.

I know it's a surprise to find that the Sunday shows are chockablock with conservatives again. It's a strange phenomenon, isn't it? Democrat in charge, they book conservatives as "balance". Republican (I can't honestly call him a conservative, because I don't believe he has any actual ideology other than self-interest.) president-elect and do we get Dems as "balance"? Oh hell no.
