The fun of my position

The fun of my position August 4, 2016

I realized something today.  It’ll be better for me personally if Trump wins because then everybody can tell me how wrong I was (because winning means Trump’s right, of course) and I can say “I didn’t vote for him but he’s my president and I hope he does a good job”. There will some gloating over my obvious stupidity and then people can have their victory lap.

Then when catastrophe comes as it surely will under Trump, everybody heaping contempt on me can all have a rethink and say they are sorry they voted for him and we’ll all be friends again–assuming we survive the catastrophe.

But if he loses, then the only *real* things will not be the catastrophic nuclear war/financial meltdown/epic incompetence of the Trump administration on Alternate Earth that never happened, but the corruption and sleaze of Hillary that did. And all the people who hate me now will all say, “Are you happy now, you traitorous bastard?”

So that’s something to look forward to.
