41. Denial ain't just a river in Africa

While driving to a noon business meeting, I was listening to the live coverage on NPR. At the meeting, an acquaintance wondered aloud why attendance at the meeting was so light -- I suggested that some people are watching or listening to the hearings. Her comment to me: "Why don't people just get over it?"

Get over the hacking of our free and fair elections by a foreign power?
Get over the shameless profiteering partnerships with a kleptocracy?
Get over the daily trainwreck that the current administration and legislature oversee, if not engineer?



This was neither the time nor the place to get into that discussion with this otherwise intelligent person, but I must wonder...

When did we as a society cross over the line where the liberals were willing to fight against intrusion by a former Communist, oppressive regime, while the conservatives embrace Putin as a valuable ally, jettisoning our NATO friends of the past 20-60 years?

When did intelligent white Xtians sell their souls to an AntiChrist so blatantly obvious as the ShitGibbon?

When will they cross the river of denial and wake the fuck up?
