COMMENTS ARE BACK…. The comments section was, as much as it pains me to say it, down for 20 hours. Twisting the knife, they were down on the most important day of the year.

What’s that saying? “This hurt me more than it hurt you”?

Comments are, I’m pleased to report, back online. Needless to say, we apologize for the inconvenience. Please feel free to use this thread to say all of the things you would have said last night, during one of the most amazing election nights in American history.

Our ideas can save democracy... But we need your help! Donate Now!
