In the wake and on the occasion of the recent US presidential election, I will remain silent and instead let Dr. Rumack from Airplane! speak for me:

„Good luck. We were all counting on you.“

This should prove quite, interesting? I won't join the naysayers nor the revelers on this one: I'm waiting for the resurgence of the bumper stickers "Don't blame me I voted for *whomever*" to start appearing.

Oh yes — "interesting times", as the saying goes!

I'm honestly not even sure who I would've voted for. Neither of the major candidates seemed all that appealing. I suppose it would've come to policy choices for me — it's tempting to vote for the person you think is more likeable, the chum you'd like to have a drink with, that sort of thing, but it's a poor basis for electing any politician.

I'm waiting for the resurgence of the bumper stickers "Don't blame me I voted for *whomever*" to start appearing.

Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos. :)

Also: rumor has it the Canadian immigration website crashed in the afterhours of the election. Whether that's true and whether it's directly attributable to the result I don't know, but it makes for a fun little anecdote.

Ah, is that someone who stood for election but wasn't on your ballot, or just someone you'd have liked to see in charge?

He's a Utah conservative (but NOT one of the uber-evangelical types) who has a lot of views that I agree with. There isn't much that I disagree with him on. :)

He was only a write-in in my state but he was an alternative to Trump or Hillary, 2 extremely flawed candidates.
