Some interpretations

First, WaPo has pulled down their paywall through Saturday and I encourage everyone to read this sampling of responses from people invited to tell us why they voted for Trump.

Summary: Because he's more Godly than the Clintons, because of Clinton-fatigue, because the MSM (and the Democratic leadership) took it for granted that Clinton would win, because they really believed MSM stories that implied Hillary Clinton had done something criminal at some point, because they think he cares about farmers, because they think he wants to keep everyone--gay, straight, Christian, Muslim, etc.--safe and happy, and (a recurring theme) because a lot of people mistakenly think this is a country founded on capitalism and that we need a CEO, not a President.

My favorite was the guy who thinks the Supreme Court is an "unelected oligarchy rewriting the Constitution." Gotta love people who have strong opinions on subjects they are clearly unqualified to discuss.

On the same theme, Leon Weiseltier encourages us to Stay angry. As he says (I've said it before, and I'll say it again--told you so), the country is now reaping the harvest of hate that the Republican Party has spent decades cultivating. An interesting read.
