As it all draws down,
it's sickening to see everyone tripping over each other trying to prove how smart they are by showing all the things Hillary got wrong. It's too bad politics is so important, because many times being involved in it makes me absolutely disgusted with humanity, with its venality, boundless capacity for conceited self-deception, and general inability for honest self reflection. I'm sure I'm little better than most people in this regard, but knowing this doesn't make it easier to see it in other people. Sometimes I look at the world and I'm really amazed we managed to get through the past 50 years without blowing ourselves up.
