Comments: Overreact, Moi?

Just curious....why do you think he'll dismantle the constitution?
And I'll grant you he doesn't understand the constitution, but I'm not at all sure how he could dismantle it in this clime or what it is he wants to dismantle.

First let me just apply a bit of salve - it's quite possible that the deep and wide denunciations of Blankenship, including by Trump himself, changed voters minds. Sometimes overreaction has a positive effect. And if the result had been different, it wouldn't have been overreaction. [Werner Heisenberg had something important to say on this point.]

Terri's question is apropos, but I sense that you're venting more than predicting. If not then I would also ask, what do you consider "get back to normal" to look like?

Finally, did you see the meme that Cocaine Mitch Tweeted after Blankenship hit the blankenberg? (Of course you did, you retweeted it.) Mitch looks like he's standing and smiling in an airborne cloud of white powder! OMG.

I thought you both were more used to me by now. I was totally, 100% kidding about President Trump's usurping the electoral process and staying in office. Tongue firmly in cheek -- promise.

And the Ohio primary results were favorable too. If my Town of residence had not belly-flopped into the deep end of Boulderism last night, I'd be politically quite content.

James Freeman has a funny angle: you win a primary and every headline features the name of the guy you beat.

Religious wacko? Hey! I resemble that remark! (you should see some of my friends when I try to describe fasting...)
