The Idiocracy has arrived

My basic view of the presidential election results:



I had been too smug when the electoral votes started being tallied. Since most of the early results were from typically-red states, I mistakenly thought, "Enjoy your lead now, Donny. You'll be losing it by the end of the night."

In spite of this, there were a few bright spots in the election. Sheriff Joe Arpaio lost his re-election bid in Arizona, Colorado's minimum wage measure ($12/hour minimum wage by 2020) passed, and several state and local candidates I supported won their races. Sadly, the "ColoradoCare" measure (Amendment 69) lost by at least 80%. With that defeat and the possible repeal of the Affordable Care Act, I may be without health insurance again unless the new leadership actually does come up with a better alternative.
