Cry, Cry Again

It’s a special post-election episode of HWX, with Brian Ward of Fraters Libertas and Paul Happe of the Nihilist in Golf Pants reconvening to bind the up the nation’s wounds and bring us all together in preparation for the challenges ahead. . Topics discussed include:

From election night – election night parties, what are they good for? Polls, what went wrong and what went right? The end of the pundit era as we know it? A review of election night celebrity Tweets. Plus an exclusive musical tribute to the media reporting of the night, with accompaniment by Maxine Nightingale.

Concession speeches – exclusive audio of what Hillary really might have said. Also some ideas for making concession speeches more productive and more entertaining in the future.

What were we drinking during this episode? Surly Over Rated an PsuedoSue from Toppling Goliath.

    “Sue” is a very large T-Rex skeleton that graces the atrium of the Field Museum in Chicago.

    We had a fantastic exhibit of “Sue” in the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History this Summer & early Fall. I really like the traveling-exhibits program but “Sue” is probably back in Chicago now.

    Thank you for an easygoing and goodhearted effort during a bittersweet election year.

    During the rise of the Orange Menace, the brief surge of hope after the Minnesota primary, and the long, sometimes painful/sometimes comic arc that led to two cheers for the new president last Tuesday, you provided friendly and funny common sense.

    And great canned yucks! (More creaky gate please)

    No hissy fit arias or virtue signalling (I guess that’s not really a nihilist thing).

    HWX captures, for me, what center-right bonhomie could be.

    Thanks guys.

    I think it was Van Jones and not Lamont Hill who used white-lash on CNN. But I could see either one of them saying it.

    Yes, you’re correct. Thanks.

    Here’s Jones getting confronted over his inflammatory statements by Mary Matalin:
