8:15am: Four more years of a nation led by criminals. I was making coffee with one eye on CNN when the news broke, and I called my dad, a man who’s spent many years fighting for good things, sometimes at great personal cost.
“Get over it,” he said, “The way you feel now is exactly how I felt when Nixon won a second term — crushed. I just couldn’t believe America was that stupid. But remember what happened to Nixon that term.”
And, I’m glad others are feeling just as sick as I am right now. I’m really pissed that this is such a gut bomb for me. I’m skipping kickboxing, going home early, and going to bed (early-to-bed mainly to avoid a food binge).
