I do solemnly swear

Maybe this time the Chief, not wanting Trump to wield executive power, will intentionally screw-up the Oath.

All of you can snipe all you want, but there's nothing you can do now. Just sit back and watch as a man all of you denigrated assumes the highest office in the land, standing triumphantly upon the corpses of the DNC, the Clinton attack machine, and Dem party unity.

In MMA speak, Dems just got poleaxed. Most people, when that happens to them, have enough dignity to be quiet and start training for the next round.

"nothing you can do now"

In this country, we can do various things, we can do in speech and action.

Republicans didn't just shut up in November 2000. Worked fairly well for them in the long run. Or, Democrats and others against Trump, for reasons however snide people are about them whining or something on very strong grounds, can just shut up and train behind the scenes or something.

Nah.

November 2008, of course, though maybe they should have tone it down a TAD back then and not lost control of the Senate.

@YesterdayIKilledAMammoth

Despite the elevation of your hero, you are still going to be completely surrounded in your day to day life by the liberals you loath so much. And you are going to continue to have to live with the knowledge that if your colleagues and "friends" knew your true beliefs they in turn would loath you. Unwilling to risk that, the only outlets for your bitterness will remain pseudonymous sniping to captive audiences on random websites.

Happy new year to us all.

It was a F*&%^#n joke, targeting Obama and Roberts screwing up the oath in 2009 (which didn't deprive Obama of presidential power anyway). You really need to find a better outlet for your stress.

It's going to be an awfully bumpy ride for the next four years. Yikes......

Joe: What?
Vegan: Teump's not my hero. You should not attack someone with a pseudonym from behind a pseudonym Regarding the rest of your post...What?
Howard: I got the joke. But for some reason you felt the need to 'mansplain' it to me?

Feel free to make like a tree.

"Joe: What?"

What? Sorry for any confusion. Maybe everyone took part in snark here. In response to a joke, you talked about how Democrats were "sniping" after they were "poleaxed" and that they should be "quite now."

I found that tedious and noted that Republicans et. al. didn't do that when they lost big. They responded in word and action. But, again, since that is obvious, I'm sorry. Everyone might just be snarking.
