No Faith in the Faithless

It happened, like I pretty much knew it would, even the 'faithless' electors couldn't forestall the installation of Vulgarmort, so the United States will now have a kakocracy as it's form of government... or for the cartoon crowd, a kekocracy. They won't be laughing when the Trump maladministration decides to take South Carolina's internet porn fee national in order to prop up the nation's finances once the inevitable new round of GOP tax cuts take effect. Hey, similar consumption taxes were imposed in Kansas as part of Brownback's shifting of the tax burden onto poor people.

Anyway, at this point, I suspect that Lin-Manuel Miranda is going to be working on a new musical about how much Hamilton sucked.

Yeah, the idea that the Republican electors might not cast their votes for Trump was always completely ridiculous and a waste of time and effort. And while we can expect much awfulness in the next few years, we can also expect regular outbreaks of schadenfreude as the newly empowered white nationalist wing of the party clashes with the declining conservative elite. The tug of war between white hillbilly racial, sectarian and tribal issues and the needs and desires of the wealthy donor class will often be hilarious to watch...
