Once again, Frank gets it exactly.
Nailed it.
"Start at the top. Why, oh why, did it have to be Hillary Clinton? Yes, she has an impressive resume; yes, she worked hard on the campaign trail. But she was exactly the wrong candidate for this angry, populist moment. An insider when the country was screaming for an outsider. A technocrat who offered fine-tuning when the country wanted to take a sledgehammer to the machine."
... "She was the Democratic candidate because it was her turn and because a Clinton victory would have moved every Democrat in Washington up a notch. Whether or not she would win was always a secondary matter, something that was taken for granted. Had winning been the party’s number one concern, several more suitable candidates were ready to go. There was Joe Biden, with his powerful plainspoken style, and there was Bernie Sanders, an inspiring and largely scandal-free figure. Each of them would probably have beaten Trump, but neither of them would really have served the interests of the party insiders."

And now I'm opening the MMOs I haven't opened for two years. First, Elder Scrolls Online. I should be able to get a good night's sleep while it updates. I'll wait for the long weekend for WoW. :)

View from the left of Hillary Clinton:

...this is not politics. It’s an imitation of politics. It feels political, yes: it’s highly moralistic, it sets up an easy melodrama of good versus bad, it allows you to make all kinds of judgments about people you disagree with. But ultimately it’s a diversion...

In light of the news coverage on the Clinton Foundation of late, this excerpt from Thomas Frank's book, Listen, Liberal, seems relevant right now.

I was a huge fan of Myst and Riven. Finally, the Kickstarter for the new game has delivered! I backed it 2 years and 11 months ago. +David Rollins I think you backed this, too? I'm downloading now.

Somehow I managed to strain my lower back and it hurts like a mofo. If I am cranky with you today, that's probably why. Or you're being difficult. But definitely one of those two.
