Godspeed, Ye Citizens of the Republic



There's nothing left to say, of course. Although the last eight years have done their best to end two hundred years of representative government, the American people's best instincts proved resilient enough to recognize tyranny, secrecy, and fear, and to reject it. We're on our way to a brighter day, a little bruised and battered, but looking toward the horizon. Irony has survived. It was the last refuge of Eastern Europe in the dark days, and it's seen us through our own twilight. So stand in line and pull the lever, and have a drink on us. Speaking of which...

Happy Election Day, everybody! See you on the other side!
