Mood: Bleak, Black and Bloodied
Drinking: Deep Draughts of Disbelief and Dismay
I am so sorry!
I’m sorry that our president is such an obnoxious, arrogant, bullheaded idiot. I’m sorry that half of our country seems to believe that he is NOT an obnoxious, arrogant, bullheaded idiot. I’m sorry that even though millions of us tried to kick his self-righteous ass to the curb, we failed. I’m sorry that my country has just unleashed four more years of fear, bigotry, greed and bloodshed upon the rest of the world.
I am sorry that my country has become the biggest bully on the playground. I am sorry that so many Americans seem to feel that believing in God makes all their decisions right and just and good, even when they are horribly and obviously wrong. I am sorry that you will now be bludgeoned repeatedly with lies, rhetoric and mangled English. I am so, so sorry.
My small consolation on this devastating day: At least I live in San Francisco.
-Lo, who wishes her voice were louder.
