Hillary delivered a really classy concession speech.

…about 10 hours too late.
But, what I came to say: V, same here. I read your link to Wonkette (via Federalist Papers) and finally, I got a grin about all this. When you see a pompous idiot, in pain that’s mostly self-inflicted (and expressed with all of her usual pompous stupidity), it’s hard not to grin. I’m only human.

Al-Cray-da is too busy sniffing Madame Secretary’s dress shields to offer anything worthy of commentary.

She wears pantsuits generally. Haha.

V, I was at work late. One or two people tried to talk to me about the close election. Expecting the worst outcome (a repeat of 2000 except that it ends with Hillary stealing it), I said “I don’t want to know”. But then the last guy to leave before me was a Hillary supporter and he was sighing, and I thought “Oh well, maybe not the worst.” Then my Trump-supporting buddy texted me “Can’t believe we won!”
Still, I have low hopes for Trump and it took me until this morning to feel semi-happy.
My nephew in the Marine Corps Reserve is with me: not excited about Trump, but hey, at least no more Hillary. We went to our first gun show, last Saturday. He bought a Glock. I plan to buy but still have to revive my safety certification (from when I had it a few years back).

All the usual gay sites from Matthew Rettenmund to Signorile to Americablog are frantically trying to make every excuse in the world for why she lost (misogyny; racism; homophobia) without just admitting she came across as a dishonest corrupt jerk.

All this morning I was filled with the peculiar sensation of having taken Syrup of Ipecac and medicinal marijuana at the same time. The bitter nausea that Trump tends to produce is somewhat tempered by the sweet, sweet joy of seeing Hillary denied her Manifestly Destined tiara. She’ll just have to console herself with tens of millions of dollars in speaking fees and the possibility that the Nobel committee will throw a Peace Prize at her because she tried.
But now the challenge is to keep Nero in line…

I cannot remember the last time I stayed up till 3 a.m. (east coast time). It may have been in college.
It was sooooo worth it.
My favorite part of the night was on CNN. As the talking heads, well, talked, the guy with the vote maps was in the background. I could imagine his thought balloon:
“There must be more votes for Clinton in here somewhere!!!”
