Lordy, I hope... well, a lot of things...

At least tonight it was. I don't think it's hyperbole that if Trump had come to office in 2009 when the economy was crashing that I'd be worrying about an actual Hitler scenario.

You can blame individual voters for being stupid. I mean, fight with your crazy uncle for voting Trump or yell at your hippie friend for writing in Bernie in the general election, or whatever. Fight with random people on the internet about it if that's your thing (and of course it is). I think people who voted for Trump AND people who voted for Jill Stein are idiots (and not just out of "must Stop Trump!" considerations - Stein seems horrible). But after we're done telling people they're idiots - and they are! - a lot of money is going to be raised and spent to figure out how to get a plurality of votes for candidates in congressional races and then a plurality of votes in enough states for a presidential candidate.

Stupid is one thing. When I watch something like tonight's rally, the word "evil" seems much more appropriate. We might need some stupid voters to win, but let's let the evil ones go. On a night like this, I feel like there are a lot of evil people out there.
