2/ Be prepared to witness a tidal wave of articles, statements, books, and weepy television confessions from White House officials and republicans to tell you they only stuck with Trump and played the game to keep America safe and from going off the rails.
Today is Walter Mondale’s 93rd birthday.
On day after his 53rd birthday - Jan. 6, 1981 - he announced his defeat in the electoral college:
“Walter F. Mondale has received 49 votes."
Mondale to Tip O'Neill: "A landslide"
O'Neill: "Very impressive"
Mondale’s reaction to announcing his election loss and the gallery’s reaction to Mondale should bring a smile to your face. This is how you accept defeat, with equanimity.
@GeoffRBennett @JulesJester Watch this outstanding summary of what's going in the U.S. election by BBC journalist Ros Atkins. Sometimes you need to see "us" through another's eyes to understand where we are. It's only 45 seconds.
I am thinking of all those desperate for extended unemployment benefits tonight. Heartbreaking. The abject cruelty, the callousness, the lack of a single drop of empathy... during the holidays and a pandemic, in added tragedy. All for no purpose but a malignant ego.
