Turn the Lights Out, Burn It All Down

Nothing matters.

It’s been one hell of a week since the terror attacks in Paris. America’s politician and thought leaders have covered themselves in glory, and covered everyone else in the sticky hotness of their takes. We deserve Donald Trump, and there is a not unrealistic scenario in which he will actually become president. But he probably won’t. Hillary remains the most likely winner in 2016, in which case we’ll get eight more years on uninspired gridlock and, if we’re lucky, a handful of donor-friendly bipartisan deals and/or bungled wars. We’d deserve that, too, just like we deserved a Thursday night football game between the 2-7 Tennessee Titans and the 3-6 Jacksonville Jaguars. (Final score: 19-13.)
