Saturday’s Theme Music

Former Vice-President Joe Biden has been declared the winner over Trump. Mr. Biden will become the next POTUS.

Many have cried, “At last, the four-year-nightmare is over!”

Yeah, no.

I’ve seen this movie before. Just when you think the Terminator was dead and Linda Hamilton was safe, here he comes again. When you finally believed John McClain had vanquished the terrorists, one more shows up with a final effort to shoot and kill him.

That’s where we’re at in this election scenario. It’s not time for the credits yet.

Trump embraced America’s worst ideals and created a nasty legacy. Raising conspiracy theories and outlandish challenges to science and common decency to new levels he’s enabled the same in people who would otherwise be mostly decent, friendly, capable members of society.

He wasn’t alone, no. Fox News remains out there amplifying the trumpshit. Trump’s GOP enablers, like Mitch McConnell, were re-elected. The slug who screwed the United States citizens countless times during Mr. Obama’s terms, who has stonewalled legislation, remains in office.

Trump and his minions will be out there on Twitter and Facebook, continuing their shameless litany of absurdities and outright garbage. And Trump is still in office for a few more months. As petulant, petty, hateful, cruel, and shallow as he is, I don’t expect these next few months to go without incident. He’s also not likely to accept the results, but continue going to court, demanding recounts, and posting lies about the situation. And his supporters will lap it up and amplify it. So, no, it’s not over.

Chris Rea had the perfect song for it, though. Here’s his 1978 hit, “Fool (If You Think It’s Over)”.

Fool if you think it’s over
‘Cause you said goodbye
Fool if you think it’s over
I’ll tell you why

(Yeah, it’s not really the perfect song for the situation, but it’s what came to mind, okay? Okay.)

Cheers

  1. I agree with you wholeheartedly, this horrid example of the worst of humanity will continue to spew his idiocy, conspiracy theories as long as he can. His supporters will follow believing that he is the rightful president until his tyranny comes to a fiery and painful end. He reminds me of someone of the early 20th century who also believed his views were what was right for “his” people. And somehow convinced the blind, lost people who couldn’t think for themselves, that he called followers (lemmings) into a world war and mass murder, his name was Hitler. So, yes it will get worse before it gets better.

  2. That’s a great song. My first thought was from The Tragically Hip’s brilliant “38 Years Old”: My mother cried, “The horror has finally ceased” / He whispered, “yeah, for the time being at least”. Can Biden can reverse The Dumpster’s executive orders in January and repair the damage?

    1. That would’ve been another good song choice! Wish I’d thought of it. Haven’t heard it in probably twenty years. Yes and no on Biden repairing the trumpruption and trumpma done., especially with GOP enablers such as Susan Collins and M. McConnell still in place. But it’s a start, you know?
