A meditation on the chapters yet to come.
“There were a lot of things Republicans could have done to not find themselves in the tight, uncomfortable place they are now trapped within.”
“We may speak again when they have returned to their senses.”
“Once learned, such truths cannot be unlearned, they can only be stubbornly denied.”
“…on yet another level I am horrified by the tension that comes with seeing one too many coincidences; having read and remembered one too many familiar stories.”
“I come back to this quote now and again — not verbatim, just the operative tones and phrases of it.”
“How?” we ask. “Why? Have you not seen and heard this buffoon?”
Things begun; things not yet over.
