"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

When I see something like this

and reflect on Trump's approval rating (53% disapprove, 43% approve) I think results last night had less to do with Trump than with candidates in red states (Texas, North Dakota, Florida).  If this is what appeals to a majority of the country then I am truly always going to be in the minority.

And for lagniappe:

In the meantime there seem to be a surplus of sensible analyses of what happened last night; I'm going to go read them.
