b1-66er: How's DC post trump?
D4rw1n: It is very hard to gauge DC now -- many otherwise clear-thinking people are still in an odd phase of confusion. Also the difficulty to gauge is compounded by my own fundamental disagreement with the whole "not my president" movement.
b1: Yeah. It's a tuning fork for cognitive dissonance.
D: My impression is that some closet racists are emboldened; most progressives feel an impotent rage, and many complete neophytes are taking the reins of a government they both despise and also fail utterly to understand.
