Is the presidential election really over, finally, or is this

"See, now, we are feeling what not having hope feels like," Obama told
This was the same
But that was long ago. And now, hope seems to have fled altogether.
"What else do you have if you don't have hope?" the first lady told Oprah. "What do you give your kids if you can't give them hope?"
You mean, if you don't give your kids eight years of top private schools and lavish vacations all over the world, including stays in luxurious Spanish castles with friends and a houseful of retainers?
I wouldn't know. Still, I feel you, Michelle, because once, I had hope too.
I once hoped the presidential campaign and the lamentations about the presidential campaign would end.
But that was back in November, weeks and weeks ago, when the votes were counted.
Yet the nightmare continued, on and on, with much wailing and shrieking and whining and crying and screeching and whimpering. It wouldn't die, crawling upon the snow like a relentless, severed hand from some White Walker in "Game of Thrones."
"It's over," said a guy I half-invented to help with an awkward transition. "
Now, after all this time, you dare tell me that "it's over"?

First came election night, and many TV talking heads with their weeping and wailing and refusing to see the numbers in front of them.

Sadly for the Clintons, things didn't work as planned, which must have hurt Sheen's pride, as he had played that wildly popular president on the liberal TV fantasy show "The West Wing."
I'd rather picture him, not as a TV president, but in my favorite Sheen role, as the Soul Hunter.
Sheen played a space alien with a gigantic, pulsing bald head and a glowing avocado pit in the middle of his forehead in "Babylon 5: The River of Souls."
