Donald ducks Hillary

Monday, November 14, 2016

Voters and the electoral college of the United States have spoken and elected the “least bad” in the Nov. 8 Presidential Election, which kept millions of nervous, unsure Americans glued to their TVs, computers, and cell phones deep into the night.

As is his wont, Donald Trump grabbed Hillary Clinton with his dwelling on her alleged shady Clinton Foundation, outrageous speaking fees, and nefarious email boondoggle to eke out the vitriolic victory, thanks to our founding fathers’ magical electoral college creation.

As millions of votes were cast as anti-Hillary or anti-Trump, the focus remained on the pivotal states and their electoral counts. The first to 270 electoral votes wins the race, despite the fact that a woman can run faster with her pantsuit up than a man can with his pants down.

So, what now? Four years of who knows? Impeachment after the Donald moves the White House to Bejing? Donald courts future wife #4 and it’s Rosie O’Donnell? Donald renames the Pentagon “Bomb The S– - - Out Of Them” Tech? He names billionaire Oprah Secretary of State and tries to grab her, too?

Of couse we all know all that is just silly. Just like Trump’s and Hillary’s low-life campaigns. Silly.

As Americans today sigh - oh my, what have we wrought? - we’re reminded of the erudite lyrics from the aptly named Dire Straits:

“And after all the violence and double talk. There's just a song in all the trouble and the strife. You do the walk, you do the walk of life.”

No matter where it leads.
