Good morning, everyone.

Before I begin, take a look around you. Please. Just humor me on this.

Are there any fires burning? Are there any flipped vehicles in your neighborhood? Did an asteroid hit your favorite team’s stadium?

No?

Good.

We’ve survived another Presidential election, and Barack Obama has secured another four year term. When the projection came in, this was the image tweeted out shortly thereafter:

“Four more years.” – @BarackObama

I can honestly say that this was an ugly campaign, and it’s one that I hope to never have to witness again. That being said, what’s done is done; it’s time to move forward now. However, before I move on myself, I have to get some stuff off of my chest.

It shouldn’t have taken Mitt Romney as long as it did for him to concede the election. It was called hours ago; why you trippin’? I understand that it’s not manly to admit defeat, but when the projections hit 270 for the President, that should’ve been your cue to say, “All right; I’m done. Let me call this man, congratulate him, and crawl my ass on a stage and concede.” Dragging it out as long as he did just ain’t cool.

I wonder how Mitch McConnell feels knowing that – and I quote – “the single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president” was an abject failure? Dude…all the bravado in the world won’t help you now. Granted, he did go on to say “but if he changes, I want to work with him,” but I think that ship had sailed and sunk a while ago.

I really need Donald Trump to have a couple of seats. His ridiculous tweets about how the election process failed is childish on so many levels. And, he’s clamoring for a revolution? A REVOLUTION?! Excuse my crassness, but…nigga please. Sarah Palin can go follow suit. These blithering imbeciles are part of the problem in this country, because they seek to widen the divide that we have in the guise of helping.

The Redskins Rule has failed again. For those who are uninitiated, the Redskins Rule basically says that if Washington wins its final home game before the election, the incumbent party keeps the White House. That was disproven in 2004, but it was modified to refer to the party that won the popular vote.

I took a 24 hour sabbatical from social media yesterday, and it was tough. That being said, it wasn’t tough enough for me to hop back into the fray. I value my fleeting sanity enough to not do something like wade in the political shitstorm during a Presidential election.

That’s all I got for now, I think. If something else comes up, I’ll amend it here.
