This is a blog about books, not politics, so I will keep my remarks brief, if you’ll indulge me for a moment:
I haven’t had that much fun staying up late to watch election results in, well, ever. It wasn’t a perfect result, but great strides were made.
And now, let us all come together, whatever our political convictions, and give thanks for the true blessings of this day: NO MORE POLITICAL ADS! The storm has passed, leaving behind airwaves washed clean of that peculiar mix of sentimental glurge and vitriolic insinuation that is the signature scent of modern politics.
Breathe deep, my friends; this moment is sweet, but brief.
