I leave this here, largely, without comment tonight, because I suspect some of you may wish to vent in comments below. Please feel free.

I suspect I'll have much to say in the near future --- and for years to come, unfortunately --- as light begins to emerge from this darkness. For now, I'll just say that I have done my absolute best to warn that this day could very well be coming. I've tried to make that clear, as loudly as I could, day in and day out, five days a week on The BradCast since the day Trump first descended that escalator on June 16, 2015, and throughout all of the days and months when damned near everyone saw him as a joke, thought this could never happen, and continued to think that...right up until tonight.

Now, it appears to have happened.

I wish I could have done more. I don't know how. But I'll keep working on it.

We are all much greater than this. But we survived eight years of George W. Bush. Most of us. We will survive this. Together. Because we must.
