The astounding victory of Donald Trump is no doubt a phenomenon that will be meditated upon and discussed by everyone in the coming weeks.
But the hell with that. As bandleader Kay Kyser used to say, "C'mon, chill'un, lez dance!"
Update: I confess, I went to bed last night around 10:30, fully expecting to wake up this morning and see the news filled with Hillary's smiling zombie face. When the alarm clock went off at 6 am, I reached over, grabbed my cell phone and brought up Drudge on Google and...Wow! Stunning, stunning win. Trump's victory really is an impressive achievement. He had to fight not only the Democratic Party, but the Clintonostra*, the wildly hyper-partisan press, and a not insignificant unit of conservative and moderate NeverTrumpers.
For me, the biggest thrill was seeing the destruction of the Clinton machine. A Hillary victory would have institutionalized and consolidated the corruption that attends her and her circle of ministers-without-portfolio everywhere they go. Plus, I get to keep my guns and maybe even see Obama Care either overturned or "reformed" out of existence. And of course, there's the Supreme Court, the repudiation of Barack Obama's reign of error, the reversal of his executive orders...the list goes on and on.
*Not my own coinage, but a great word. I regret that I cannot remember where I first saw it.
Update II: A really good analytical piece by Jim Newell (at Slate, of all places).
Update III: Oh, yeah, added bonus: our new First Lady.
